B.A., B.S.W., M.S.W.
Registered Social Worker
For 9 years I have worked with individuals, couples and families on a wide variety of issues including communication breakdown, trauma, abuse, accident, injury, addictions, depression, anxiety and other mental health concerns.
I understand that change is difficult, and it is hard to take the first step in seeking out therapy support. I know it takes courage to start this process. I offer a safe, private, confidential environment to explore what you want your life to look like and to help you get there. Therapy is hard work, but the reward is a more satisfying you
As a Therapist, I use a strength-based, client focused approach and a variety of evidence-based practices such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness and Brief Solution Focused Therapy to help you live your best life. I work to empower my clients to realize the positive changes they seek.

How can I help?
I'm sure this may sound familiar to some of you.
I see people lost, I see suffering more than ever, and I see frazzled nervous systems including my own. I see many of us just don’t know what to do with all of this, and how to bring peace or any form of balance back in our lives.
I see us not understanding why we fly off the handle at the drop of a hat or pull back and disassociate with family or loved ones.
It's NOT OUR FAULT.
I have recently moved from back home to Ontario after living 7 years in Fort McMurray AB. Enduring the Wild Fires of Fort McMurray in 2016 and the Ice River Break. So many of us have experienced Traumatic Events and don’t really think of ourselves as Survivors. Bad Car Accidents, Disconnect from Family, Childhood Physical/Emotional Abuse, Childhood Neglect Abandonment, Sexual Assault, Abusive Adult Relationships. Alcohol and Drug Addictions, Overeating, Chronic Sleep Issues. They can add up.
So many of us have experienced trauma in our lives but never really realized we are living our lives with a totally different nervous system due to these events, either over a long time or one major event.
It's not our Fault
You are enough!
You are not alone.
We are Here to Help You Find Balance
