I’ve been providing counselling to individuals and families now for over 25 years. I am best known for 15 years of providing general mental health services to children, teens, and their parents and families through a local out-patient mental health service, CMHC/Trellis, before leaving to pursue my private practice.  I work both from my home now, and from a Guelph office.  I am a Registered Social Worker with the OCSSW&SW


I pride myself on helping good people who just need someone there to understand and guide them on their path.  I have great respect for those who are strong enough to reach out for help on their life journey when things get too hard to deal with on their own.  I see you as the expert in your life, and my role is to share my knowledge and experience to help you make decisions that will move you forward.  I offer an individual treatment approach tailored to your particular situation.  This is not a cookie cutter approach.  You are unique and what you need is likely unique to who you are.

I am considered eclectic in my approach, and I have a strong background in the following styles of therapy:

- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
