It can be hard to take the plunge into counselling, but take the perspective of it being a well deserved opportunity to focus solely on you! If you are feeling stressed, anxious, depressed, or, quite simply, not like yourself, then maybe it’s time to put yourself first!
I provide confidential, experienced counselling and psychotherapy to adults, couples, and adolescents for stress, anxiety, depression, self esteem, relationship strain, life transitions, separation, and divorce. As a Certified Interpersonal Psychotherapist, I also specialize in depression and relationships.
If you are in the York (Stouffville, Markham) or Durham (Uxbridge, Port Perry, Brooklin, Whitby, Oshawa, Lindsay) regions please contact me to book a session or your complimentary 15-minute consultation! Let’s work together to get you on track to feeling happier and healthier!
Registered Clinical Social Worker
Certified Interpersonal Psychotherapist
My approach is friendly, compassionate, and straight forward – with a touch of humour in tow. I utilize a variety of therapeutic modalities including Solution Focused, Interpersonal, and Cognitive Behavioural therapies in combination with my strength in problem solving.
I am not immune to life’s challenges, and along with my education and work experience, I come with a breadth of life experience that allows me to be relatable and insightful in supporting you. However, I view each client as unique, and once we have identified the stressors in your life, we work together to find the best options and solutions for you. Your happiness is my top priority!
I have provided counselling and psychotherapy to adults, couples and adolescents for over 12 years. My work experience lies in a number of practice areas such as Family Service Agencies in both Toronto and York Region, Preferred Provider EAP services, and the Women’s Support Network of York Region. I have thoroughly enjoyed working in private practice in Stouffville since 2011 and in 2018 I opened a 2nd private practice location in the historic town of Port Perry.
