Description

I am a mental health clinician with over 25 years of experience providing individual, family, group and couple counselling. I also have been an instructor for the past 12 years at the Faculty of Medicine, Memorial University. 

I truly enjoy my work and believe it is a privlidge to be trusted by my clients during a vulnerable or challenging period of their lives to help work towards a better future. Ultimately,  I provide an environment that is free of judgement and focused on clients' needs
