I am a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan with a Master of Science in Psychology, Post Graduate Certificate in Education from London, UK, a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology, and experience working with adults, children, teens, and families to combat anxiety and help to reach potential in all areas of life. My practice offers sessions for managing anxiety, depression, PTSD, ADHD, motivation and goal setting issues, emotional dysregulation, and parenting struggles. I use CBT, DBT, solution-focused brief therapy, motivational interviewing and mindfulness strategies to help to internalize the strategies you need to thrive.

From anxiety and depression, to PTSD and BPD, mental survival tactics can drain years from your lives, leaving us struggling just to get by while the pleasures and joys of life seem just beyond our grasp.
But it doesn't have to be that way.
When people experience severe life stressors or trauma, it often feels like their life is beginning to unravel. My passion is to provide an inclusive environment where I will support these individuals to find their strength, improve relationships, and develop an awareness of themselves as complete and whole.
My specialization will help guide and inspire you to achieve your goals. Everyone has the potential to thrive. What stops us can be overcome. The first step is deciding that you want to make a change.
My clients describe me as calm, helpful, easy to talk to, and most of all express that they feel understood. Counselling and therapy with me is based upon a relationship of trust and respect. You will set the pace, and I will help you to increase your understanding and perspective on the issues of concern. From there we will work on building your own personal resources to address, respond to, make choices about, and deal with those issues.
I see individuals as well as families, and offer help in the following areas:
- relationship issues
- separation and divorce
- loss and grief
- depression and anxiety
- other challenges with mood and emotions
- crisis and life transitions
- difficulties with other relationships (family, friends, colleagues)
- personal development
- managing chronic health challenges.
Why would you choose me? Some benefits of working with me are that I accept you, no matter where you are. You deserve a therapist who appreciates what makes you unique. I am interested and curious about your experiences, challenges and goals.

Meridian or Energy Therapy
Meridian therapy is an exciting new approach to healing used by therapists, nurses, physicians, psychiatrists, counselors and lay people worldwide. To date, using Energy Therapy has yielded exceptional results for emotional and physiological problems. We have not encountered or heard of any adverse side effects when the treatment suggestions and protocols were followed.
Energy Therapy techniques produce change by gaining access to the energy system of the body through the complex network of meridians or channels that move our life force or qi through our bodies. The discover Statement of Energy Therapy informs us as follows: "The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body's energy system." The theory states that once there is a build-up of emotional or physiological distress, one of these pathways, or meridians, becomes blocked and must be cleared, cleaned out, strengthened, or aligned, in order for healing to occur.
This system of meridians accessed in Energy Therapy was mapped out by the Chinese over four thousand years ago and is the basis of all acupuncture treatment. Imbalances in our energy system can be cleared up and healed by stimulating points along these meridians, unblocking congestion and evening out the energy flow. It does not matter whether emotional or physiological stress impairs the perfect functioning of these meridians; it only matters that these circuits of energy be realigned.
Pioneers in the Energy Medicine field consider Energy Therapy to be a form of "psychological acupuncture." While acupuncturists use needles to facilitate movement of the life force through the body, energy therapists use the fingers to tap or simply hold the endpoints of these meridians. The stimulations of these meridian points in combination with cognitive statements and emotional focus, restores balance to the energy system, and allows the body and mind to resume their potent, natural healing process.
