Description

I am excited to work collaboratively with you on your journey to identify solutions to anxiety, depression, self-esteem/self-confidence, relationship issues, and emotional dysfunction concerns; to develop coping strategies to build resilience to loss, grief, trauma, burnout, and daily activities. I will help you find meaning and purpose to live authentically as you develop confidence.  I am a graduate of Wilfrid Laurier University with a Master of Social Work in 2011. I mainly use Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) combined with solution-focused, mindfulness, client-centred, and strength-based.

Summary

Therapy is not just for serious mental health issues, there are many other reasons you might consider it. It’s an opportunity to talk through any concerns or issues you have in a safe environment. Therapy can help with stress and anxiety or the impact that work and life changes have on your mental health. There are no right or wrongs in therapy, just talk about what is on your mind.
