Registered Psychotherapist, RP(qualifying), MACP
You may be here because how you usually cope is not working right now. Sometimes we can feel 'stuck' or a 'burden' to those around us. I have a passion for working with individuals, youth, and families who are currently or have previously experienced; interpersonal conflict, anxiety, depression, trauma or complex trauma, grief, and issues with coping in daily life. Every client is different and I strive to work collaboratively with you to find a comfortable rhythm that best suits you. I focus on building a strong and trusting relationship together and knowing what you are getting into will help mediate those fears. I have my Master’s in Counselling Psychology and am a member of the College of Registered Psychotherapists. I have done post-graduate certifications in; Addictions and Mental Health, Clinical Traumatology, and therapeutic modalities (including Motivational Interviewing, DBT, CBT, Structural Family Therapy, EFT, and IFS). I am a trauma focused therapist. I come at this work from years as a peer support facilitator. I've sat with individuals, families, and groups during exceptionally difficult periods in their lives. What I know how to do is to sit with what is hard, to listen empathetically, to build a space of safety and non-judgement, and create an authentic dialogue with you as we get to know one another.

Registered Social Worker, BSW, RSW
Love and Loss Therapy can help children, teenagers and adults process their pain, turn to love and see how loss can be a powerful catalyst for change and opportunity for growth. Losing someone or something meaningful can be profoundly painful and life changing. It can bring up challenges managing emotions including anxiety, stress, shame, sadness and more. Understanding how to manage and move forward with these feelings can give you freedom and healing. I've helped people navigate challenging and unpredictable situations for almost 20 years. I appreciate how hard it is to reach out for help and encourage you to take that leap. Please don’t hesitate to contact me to set up a complimentary 15-minute call to see how I can support you at this time.

Registered Psychotherapist, RP (Qualifying)
As a student therapist, I am passionate about helping my clients move towards greater meaning and connection with their values and life goals. By helping individuals become aware of any obstacles and maladaptive patterns that are keeping them stuck at this moment, I work with people to help them move towards the best version of themselves. Regardless of the specific approach that I may use, I always place my clients first by recognizing that you are the expert in your life. I work to connect my expertise with your expertise to provide a comprehensive, client-centered, and evidence-based approach to our psychotherapy sessions. I believe that a large part of the work of psychotherapy lies within the therapeutic relationship, where a client can feel safe and supported in order to take the steps towards change and believe in themselves. Therefore, my primary goal in psychotherapy is to offer a non-judgmental and safe space, together with empathy, warmth, and compassion. I aim to provide a space where you can feel free to explore whatever is coming up for you while we look together at how to move toward a better future.

Registered Social Worker, MSW, RSW
I am a Registered Social Worker, and I provide counselling for adults, teens, and children struggling with stress, anxiety, anger, depression, and ADHD. I also provide counselling, support, and guidance for family members of individuals with ADHD to help navigate the many challenges and concerns that come up in relationships impacted by ADHD. I’m committed to working with my clients in a way that helps them feel truly heard and understood and helping people move towards real change in their lives. I am passionate about helping people live life with less stress, overwhelm, conflict, and challenge and move towards improved wellbeing in life and relationships. As a therapist, I am drawn to evidence-based and strengths-based psychotherapy approaches such as CBT and ACT that we can use to help you move towards your goals for your life and relationships. Starting therapy is never an easy process; doubt, shame, and self-criticism often show up as obstacles along the path. It’s difficult to reach out, but it is undoubtedly more difficult to continue to experience the same challenges week by week. So, if you’re ready to take the first step, let me help you move towards the finish line. It's not easy, but it is worth it.
