My Approach to Therapy
As your therapist I will guide and support you as you strive for positive change. What you learn in therapy will continue to be useful throughout your life. While the length of time in counselling may be minimal, the techniques, insight, and self-awareness you will gain will be rewarding and valuable for a long time after. Visit my website to learn more about how I practice therapy.

My Background and Approach
I am registered psychotherapist with specialized training in children’s mental health, parenting and family therapy. For the past seventeen years I have supported children, youth and adolescents by helping their caregivers better understand, and help solve their challenges. I have supported parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles be their child’s life-long-counsellor. At the beginning of therapy I will collect a significant amount of information about you and/or your family so I can gain an idea of the environment you grew up in and the quality of your relationships with those who mattered. We will work together to explore and make meaning of your values, beliefs and experiences. While our conversations might make you feel vulnerable and emotional, we will focus on your strengths and resilience to help you learn and grow from your challenges and life experiences.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe everyone should have access to affordable and quality mental healthcare. While I can not claim to be an expert on all things “current”, I can promise you that on a regular basis I challenge myself to reflect and be mindful of what we cannot see. I welcome clients to share and explore what might be hiding within themselves. I also invite others to share their ideas and perspectives that may be different from own. I value and appreciate diversity and uniqueness. I am incredibly passionate about holistic and integrative mental health and wellness and have been studying this for fifteen years. I am married with two adult children and have an absolutely silly Australian Shepherd dog, and a super cool rainbow panther Chameleon, living in my home.

Choosing the Right Therapist
There are many factors that go into choosing a therapist. My style and approach has been viewed by clients as offering unique insight and therapy techniques, that more traditional therapy models don't always allow for. Much of my practice is based around parent counselling and coaching, while utilizing traditional cognitive behavioural, solution focused and narrative therapies, through an attachment and trauma informed perspective and strength-based approach. Many of my clients are parents/caregivers who are attracted to my approach and style of therapy.

My practice is based on the belief that everyone should have access to affordable, professional therapy. The initial consultation is complimentary, and is useful to determine whether we are a good fit going forward. Take a look around my website and read more about children’s mental health, parent counselling and family therapy. Read about the issues I typically treat. Please feel free to contact me to schedule an initial consultation or ask any questions you may have. I look forward to working with you.
