Do your thoughts run circles around you?
Does your mind remind you of an Emergency Broadcast System? 
Do you have a history of being stuck in toxic relationships?
Do you struggle to let go of the past? Do memories of past events haunt you, or stay stuck in your mind?
Have you struggled to set and achieve healthy goals?
Do you feel like you're not "good enough"?
Have you lost interest in things you used to enjoy?
Does worry set off internal alarms that resonate through your whole body? 
When you're depressed, do you believe that you “should” be able to “just snap out of it”?
Do you wonder if you’ll feel depressed, anxious, or lonely forever?
 
If you've answered yes to any of these questions, I promise you - you're not alone. As a counsellor, my passion is to walk with individuals as they work towards creating the lives that they desire. Professional and personal experiences have taught me that life is constantly changing, and growth is inevitable.
 
Every individual has the inner wisdom and strength to grow and heal emotionally. As a counsellor, I strive to provide a safe, inclusive environment for every person I see. I use techniques and tools which may help individuals:
 
 Grow

  • Manage symptoms of anxiety, depression, and emotional distress
  • Set healthy goals
  • Build resilience after trauma
  • Gain self-confidence
  • Seek healthy relationships
  • Develop a self-care practice

 
Heal
  • Recover from toxic relationships
  • Process trauma and abuse
  • Grieve losses
  • Identify defeating thoughts and beliefs
  • Let go of painful past experiences
  • Accept changes in emotional and physical health

 I have worked with diverse individuals who have experienced:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Mood and Personality Disorders
  • Eating disorders
  • Stress related to school, work, relationships, finances, etc.
  • Chronic pain
  • Substance abuse
  • Grief and loss
  • Low self-esteem/self-confidence
  • Self-harm
  • Unhealthy or abusive relationships
  • Trauma

 
I have worked with individuals experiencing difficult life transitions, mental health concerns, relationship issues, and work stress. I have helped people set healthy goals and develop plans to reach them. I am certified in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and have trained in other modalities as well including Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Emotion Focused Therapy, and Mindfulness. I completed a Master of Social Work degree and a Master of Art, Religion and Culture degree from Wilfrid Laurier University.
 
I work with individuals (ages 16+). 
 
You have the wisdom and strength to grow and heal emotionally. It would be an honour to support you in your journey toward emotional wellness. Please book an appointment to learn more about how you can heal, grow and get back to living the life you desire. I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your goals.
