...a different therapy must be constructed for each patient because each has a unique story.”  - Irvin D. Yalom

Life at all stages is filled with challenges, and sometimes those challenges are overwhelming. My goal is to support you in navigating these ups and downs to find personal success and satisfaction.   

I work collaboratively with clients to help them understand their unique experiences and work towards meaningful and lasting change. Through a person centered approach, I use evidence based interventions to help clients develop skills and strategies that empower them to overcome personal obstacles, improve relationships, and respond to the varied challenges throughout life.

With over 15 years working in the field, I draw from broad spectrum of therapeutic approaches to address the unique needs of my clients with emphasis on Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Emotion Focused approaches.

Registered Psychotherapist(RP) with the College of Registered Psychotherapist of Ontario
