Welcome! I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the foundation for discovery, healing, and change. If you are having difficulty dealing with your present situation, or feel stuck in a painful pattern of behaviour or emotions, I can help you recognize your feelings and patterns, and provide you with the tools to begin taking steps toward positive change. Through the therapeutic process, I integrate various counselling theories and techniques that are tailored to your uniqueness.
I am passionate about supporting clients in their journey to address barriers that prevent them from personal growth and happiness. I will work collaboratively with you to ensure you feel heard, understood, and inspired. I look forward to working together in guiding you towards a brighter, happier future!
I provide counselling therapy to adults as well as couples/marriage counselling and relationship counselling therapy, and specialize in supporting them in the following areas of concern:
Boundaries and Boundary-Setting
Stress and Burnout
Improving Communication Skills
Grief and Bereavement
Building Self-Care Routines
Identity and Self-Exploration
I am skilled in utilizing the following treatment approaches in working clients:
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Approaches based on Positive Psychology

I can also engage other treatment approaches according to the nature of your presenting problem(s) and client suitability (i.e., client personality, individual needs and preferences).
I have a Masters degree in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University, and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from York University. In addition, I have achieved Certification in Levels 1 and 2 of the Gottman Method, a renowned and research-based approach to working with couples, marriages, and relationships, from The Gottman Institute.
