Life can be painful, and sometimes our existing coping strategies simply are not enough. I offer a safe and respectful environment in which one can explore issues of concern. I will work with you to develop  a treatment plan that is based on your needs, and builds on your strengths and personal resources. I listen with compassion. 
I have a Master's Degree in Social Work from the University of Toronto. In addition I have been trained in many therapeutic models which include, Brief, Narrative, and Solution Focussed therapies. Several years ago I began to study Mindfulness and Self-Compassion, which have come to form a strong basis for my work and my personal life. 
In addition to my private practice, I am still currently employed at Lakehead University where I provide clinical counselling services to students with a wide range of issues, which include mental health, sexuality and gender issues, stress management, relationship issues and more, as well as facilitate a regular meditation group. I have previously worked in a local not-for-profit agency in family violence and EAP programs, and in adult mental health. I have facilitated therapeutic groups for men and women. 
I am committed to helping people optimize their quality of life in all areas; physically, emotionally, spiritually, sexually, and in their relationships.
