Licensed Clinical Social Worker, BA, BSW, MSW RSW
I am a Registered Social Worker with over forty years of experience working mostly in hospital based Mental Health facilitating individuals, couples and families to achieve well-being and their personal best I am trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT), informed Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and I am also well experienced in facilitating group therapy. I was a member of the teams that developed and implemented the Adult Anxiety and Affective Disorders Program and the Child and Adolescent Day Treatment Program specializing in the treatment of anxiety, depression and psychosis at London Health Sciences Center. In addition to working at London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC), Madame Vanier Children Services in London Ontario and McDonald House Community Out-patient Psychiatry General Hospital in Sault Ste. Marie Ontario,with both adult and adolescent populations, I maintained a private practice since 1990. Since retiring from LHSC in 2016, my private practice has thrived and is now full time. At times life is a balancing act, and sometimes we need a little guidance and support to maintain that balance. An experienced therapist can help us move through difficult times, better understand our families/relationships, and find our inner sense of peace, well being and wisdom. Having a neutral, non-judgmental place to share difficulties,receive validation and support can be very beneficial. Collaboration to reach your goal is an essential element of our work together. The client brings open communication, a desire for change and I will listen unconditionally and without judgment. We will work together to help you hear your inner voice and nurture your resilience. Sessions are confidential and provide a safe and relaxed environment with your best interests as a priority. My counselling approach begins with a thorough assessment. This will include gathering information about social supports, daily routines and self care. Once problems are clarified, a detailed plan for counselling is made. Family or close supports are welcome to join sessions as desired. Please note that all counselling sessions will include confidential discussions and note-taking. At the initial session we will discuss consent to services, protection of your personal information and exceptions to confidentiality.

* NOW taking NEW clients!* Authenticity, compassion and results. You can expect all 3 of these from therapy with me. Whether I'm working 1 on 1 with someone or with couples, it's a priority for me to ensure you feel emotionally safe (i.e., not judged) in our sessions. I’m very genuine, knowledgeable, and committed to helping you learn, grow, and to create the changes you want. Unlike a lot of therapists, I often assign ‘homework’ to my clients to help them practice new skills and learn more about themselves. I value letting my clients be who they are, so laughter or swearing are totally allowed. I’ve been able to overcome some mental health and personal challenges in my own life. I know what it can feel like to struggle and not know what to do to make things better. I’d be honoured to help you achieve relief and better quality of life by drawing on my training and experience. I work with individuals age 17 and older, and I also provide couples counselling.
