Accepting new clients

Life is challenging and it is easy to begin to feel overwhelmed by situations, relationships, life events and world events that just seem (or sometimes truly are) out of our control. Finding hope again is possible. As a psychotherapist, my goal is to walk with you for a period of time to help you to navigate through some of those difficult situations, life changes and events. Sometimes it is just important to know that you are not alone in facing the challenges of life.

I use an integrative approach to psychotherapy, incorporating approaches such as DBT skills, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Solution-focussed Therapy as well as elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy among others. I am also trained in EMDR and use this approach with individuals who are struggling with the impact of trauma in their lives.

My personal background includes a Master’s degree (MA in Theology) as well as a Master’s degree (MA in Counselling). Professionally I have worked in Pastoral Ministry, as an Educator, in Psychological Services within a School Board and in Private Practice settings. My goal is to bring my education, professional and life experience to my interaction with you as a client in order to find ways to help you to identify and overcome the barriers that keep you from moving forward towards greater health, hope and authentic joyfulness in life.
