Allow me to support you and your family.

  • Are you struggling with symptoms of anxiety or depression? Want to uncover the causes and develop efficient strategies to deal with and overcome the struggle?

  • Are you having relationship difficulties with family, friends, or coworkers? Wish you could strengthen your communication skills and know where and how to create positive change?

  • Are you a parent dealing with unexpected and challenging behaviours in your child or teen? Want help discovering the cause and support as you develop an effective plan to create peace in your home?

We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.
— Anaïs Nin

 

APPROACH TO COUNSELLING

As a registered psychologist, I am trained in evidence-based approaches to counselling and assessment. My therapeutic practice is informed by family systems and social cognitive theory. These theories are grounded in the idea that much of our behaviour and emotional management skills, both the good and the not-so-good, are learned through our family and other important people in our lives with whom we have significant relationships. In my practice, I use a client-centered approach with techniques informed by cognitive behavioral therapy, brief solution-focused therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and, when working with couples, the Gottman Method.
