Description

I believe that human connection is transformative. 

Conversations often lead back to the themes of acceptance, resilience and self-compassion as we develop the insight and motivation that can create the change that you want in your life. 

From an anti-oppressive, trauma-informed lens I utilize behavioural treatments including Cognitive Behavioural (CBT) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), as well as motivational interviewing, and solution-focused interventions.

I specialize in the areas of depression, anxiety, use, and gambling. I work with transitional-aged youth and adults.
