Description

It can be difficult trying to cope with distressing times on your own.  My role is to give you caring, non-judgmental support so that you can make sense of your emotions and gain a clearer picture of how your past plays a role in your current relationships.

As a Registered Psychotherapist, I work with individuals, couples and as a clinical supervisor for other psychotherapists. 

In addition to my formal education, I've also experienced life with ups and downs and gone to therapy myself so I know, first hand, that a supportive therapist can change the course of your life.

Summary

I will be providing online sessions only until June of 2024.

In June I will return to also  working out of my home office in Newmarket, Ontario.  The space is private and comfortable and suits those who are particularly concerned with privacy and want to meet in a non-clinical environment.
