Description

I am a registered psychotherapist (RP) and accredited music therapist (MTA). My first clinical experiences were in palliative and long-term care in the Hamilton and Niagara regions. I have experience working with teens and adults in areas of addiction, grief, anxiety, depression, OCD, ADHD/ASD, to name a few. Life is full of different seasons; some can be wonderful while others challenge us and can make us feel overwhelmed. No matter what season of life you are in, you are never alone, and you always have what it takes to keep moving forward.
