Do you struggle with feelings of anger or frustration? Experience depression and anxiety or have trouble regulating your emotions? Maybe you notice you have been using substances to cope and want to find another way. Most of us aren’t taught healthy ways to express ourselves as children. No one teaches us how to handle conflict in a real way or how to grieve a loss. I would like to help with that. Whatever you are facing, I will support you. Sometimes that means understanding ourselves on a deeper level, or learning different ways of being.

I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario and after working in mental health for several years, I am now completing the practicum portion for my Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology Degree. I believe in a client-centred approach and work closely with clients to tailor treatment to individual needs by making collaborative goals. In my practice, I incorporate modalities like ACT, CBT, DBT and Mindfulness.

Working primarily with adolescents and adults, my practice is supervised by Kennedy McLean and I am seeing clients virtually. I am offering affordable rates in an effort to make therapy more accessible.  Get in touch to book your fee 15 minute consultation to see if we are a good fit.
