Our counsellors help empower individuals, couples, and families through issues by supporting and empowering them to make positive personalized changes in their lives. Their mandate is to promote healthy families through education and support as well as to provide counselling for individuals and families experiencing problems in living. Each counsellor uses unique specialized techniques to help each person manage their stress, redirect disturbing emotions and set goals for themselves.
As team lead, and a Registered Psychologist since 1997, my focus has always been to work in a non-profit agency where there is access for all. I work with families, individuals, couples, children and youth. My greatest teachers are those who sit in my office. Their talents, abilities and skills in facing their problems-in-living have taught me a great deal in how to sit with and help them as they travel their healing journey with trauma, failed relationships, anxiety, depression and childhood issues.

I have a Master’s in Counselling Psychology. My practice focus is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I also implement solution focused, and client centered strategies. My approach focuses on supporting clients in in identifying their ways of coping, exploring new skills and processing experiences developing a positive sense of self. My goal is to create a safe, trusting, and welcoming environment for all individuals.
I have a Bachelor of Education and a Master of Art in Counselling Psychology. I take a foundational approach rooted in solution-focused brief therapy, which is reinforced with person-centered narrative therapy. My approach speaks to Ockham’s Razor, where sometimes the simplest or smallest changes, can create the biggest rewards. I utilize SMART goals, metaphors, and many other flexible techniques that help clients cope and utilize new skills and experiences. I aim to create a safe and trusting environment conducive to all individuals. I am currently completing the steps to become a Registered Psychologist.
