Asking for help is a scary first step to take, especially when you don't know who to ask, or what to ask for.
Whether you are struggling yourself, needing someone to help your family, or not even sure where to begin, you have come to the right place. With over 10 years experience, I offer individual counselling to both youth as well as adults. I offer family therapy and couples counselling, as well as workshops on effective communication. I have extensive experience and training in working with those struggling with substance use disorders, and understand the impact these problems have on the entire family.
Please do not hesitate to contact me for a free phone consultation where I will be able to answer any questions you have and make sure I am the right person to help you and your family.

Children and teenagers are often difficult to understand, and as our kids grow, family dynamics change. My family therapy sessions are designed with a circular causality framework. The focus is to help families understand how one person impacts the other, and how to make permanent changes within the household to help everyone communicate, understand and develop together.
Here For You
If you’re looking for quality couples therapy sessions with a certified Psychotherapist that cares, then you’ve come to the right place. I guide my patients every step of the way and implement various methods to help them develop new attitudes towards all of life’s most complex matters. The focus of my couples counselling is on strengthening the relationship and developing healthy communication, not on placing blame or making accusations.
A Happier, Healthier You
In my therapy sessions, we’ll work to solve current problems and improve positive thinking and behavior. I will help you “re-frame” your reactions and provide you with valuable tools to cope with life’s obstacles. I’m confident you’ll find my personalized Individual therapy beneficial and inspirational.
You Are Not Alone
Are you or someone you love struggling with substance use? It might be time to seek help from a licensed professional. I offer addiction and substance use counselling for those wanting to cut down, eliminate, or sustain their current efforts towards recovery. My services involve creating a safe environment free from stigma, guilt and shame, so that you are able to open up and share your struggle, while creating achievable goals that are meaningful to you.
A Safe Place to Talk
It is not easy growing up, and children often do not know who to talk to when they do not want to talk to their parents. With many years experience working with youth, I understand the complex nature of balancing confidentiality while encouraging parental involvement. Whether you are needing someone to talk to or your parents think you should talk to someone, I offer a safe, confidential and accepting environment, free from judgement and criticism.
