When people experience severe life stressors or trauma, it often feels like their life is beginning to unravel. My passion is to provide an inclusive environment where I will support individuals to find their strength, improve relationships, and develop an awareness of themselves as complete and whole. 

You’re braver than you believe, and stronger and smarter than you think.
— Winnie-the-Pooh


Approach to Counselling

I have over 15 years of experience working with adults, children, teens, and families in both an education and mental health setting to combat anxiety and help to reach potential in all areas of life. My specialization will help guide and inspire you to achieve your goals. 

Everyone has the potential to thrive. What stops us can be overcome.  The first step is deciding that you want to make a change.

Parent Group Talk

Meet with highly qualified Counselors in a group setting to be supported through your journey as a parent, caregiver, or grandparent. When there is disruption within the family, whether it is due to illness, loss, transition, divorce, or life stages, the dynamic of the family can change. This can interrupt the ebb and flow of normal development to the extent that outside interventions should be called on to return the family unit to harmony again.

The outcome can be a more positive and healthy path of strength and unity, with everyone ready to face the next challenge that life has to bring.

Learn strategies to motivate your child, manage household and school stress, understand your child's emotions, and achieve harmony within your family. Current research and evidence will be presented and applied as we guide you along your journey.

CBT Group Therapy

Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based psychological treatment that is scientifically proven to reduce anxiety.

Group CBT is an effective way to reduce the symptoms of anxiety, depression and low self-esteem. CBT works by targeting the components that are known to maintain these symptoms. More specifically, the cognitive part (the ‘C’ part of CBT) looks at the thoughts and predictions that people have about anxiety, depression or low self-esteem provoking situations and the behavioural part (the ‘B’ part of CBT) looks at what people do when they’re feeling anxious, depressed or lacking in self-esteem.

Group work provides a supportive environment for growth. It is reassuring to know that you are not the only one facing these challenges.
