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.

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.
