If you're feeling stuck, you've come to the right place.

I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (BC), a Registered Social Worker (BC & Ont), and a Registered Psychotherapist (Ont); with my Masters degree in Counselling Psychology.  This means I have the qualifications and expertise to provide professional, helpful counselling services. 

I have over a decade of experience working collaboratively with youth, couples, and adults to help them address the troublesome memories and experiences from the past, the struggles and difficulties of today, and the anxieties and fears about the future.

What I do

What I do

I give my clients the opportunity to access therapy from the comfort of their own homes. 

Utilizing a secure, PHIPA compliant, online platform, I can 'meet' with my clients at their convenience. 

I have years of working with individuals in the film industry, sales sector, medical field, and other occupations that are considered high-stress, high-pressure, and without the reliability of a set schedule. My flexible approach and availability provides an opportunity for my clients to get the support they need, without compromising their work and personal commitments.

Many of my clients travel extensively for either work or pleasure - without disruption to therapy.
