***November 2018: Please note that my private practice is currently closed and I have returned to working full-time in a community organization. I prefer to think of this time as taking a pausefrom private practice and hope to return in some capacity in the future. When that time comes, this website will be updated. In the meantime, I can be reached via email and am happy to provide referrals to other therapists.***
I am a Registered Psychotherapist (RP) and Registered Marriage and Family Therapist (RMFT) who is dedicated to helping people reclaim their lives and relationships from the problems that are most constraining. For over 15 years I have been helping others in various counselling settings. For the last 8 years I have been working with individuals, couples, and families in therapy. I am deeply passionate and committed to my work as a Psychotherapist, and attribute my ever-growing interest in this field to a genuine curiosity about and care for others. I continue to feel very honoured by the people I work with who invite me into their lives for a period of time. As a result, I hold client stories, conversations, and the relationships built with clients with much delicacy, admiration, and respect.
I have been described as accepting, patient, and validating. Further, those with whom I meet find our conversations to be supportive and often comment on the transformative nature of them; noticing a difference, whether that be in their thoughts, feelings, or relationships with others. Clients' reports of feeling "lighter", clearer, and more hopeful after a meeting together are common.
