Counselling and Therapy

About Me

It's my belief that people deserve a place to feel seen, heard, and supported.  In our sessions, I strive to provide a space where you can express yourself and explore your inner world so that we can create change together.  While it is true that counselling can be challenging, I also believe it can and should include humour, hope, and be a comfortable place for you to learn and grow.  If you are in a place where you are ready to make changes, I will support you to address concerns such as grief and loss, anxiety, depression, ADHD/ADD, parenting, interpersonal and relationship challenges, trauma, and career transitions.

I have been in the mental health and helping field for over eight years working with children/youth, young adults, families, and adult individuals.  My therapeutic approach focuses on helping people identify, express, and regulate their emotions in order to improve their well-being.  I value ongoing learning and have received further training that allows me to use an approach tailored to you, including Emotion-Focused Therapies, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Psychedelic Integration, and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy.

I offer free 15-minute phone consultations to see if we are a good fit and discuss how we might work together to get you to where you want to be.

In my spare time, I seek to find balance for myself by getting out into nature with loved ones, practicing yoga, travelling, playing soccer, snowboarding, and and training my puppy.
