I am a registered social worker with over 25 years of experience providing counselling and psychotherapy to individuals, couples and families. I work with clients 18 years and older who present a wide range of problems and issues. My therapy approach is integrative and geared to the specific needs and goals of each client. I have training in a number of therapy modalities, including Cognitive Behavioural, Emotion Focused, Narrative, and Solution Focused Therapy.
In addition to my general private practice, I specialize in the area of mental health and have expertise in mood and anxiety disorders.
The most important part of therapy is the fit between client and therapist. The client must feel heard, understood and accepted before he/she can explore difficult issues and possibilities for positive change. My approach as a therapist is collaborative with clients - working together to help them through a difficult period in their lives and finding strategies or solutions for problems. I am always aware of a client's strengths and resilience even when facing serious challenges. I provide both short term and long term therapy depending on the needs of the client.
