I am passionate about making mental health services accessible to everybody who would like to receive help. I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with a Masters of Counselling Psychology Degree (MCP) from Adler University. My education and training has prepared me to work with children, adults, individuals, couples, and families.
My work with clients is guided by a hybrid of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Emotion-Focused Therapy. Both forms of therapy are empirically validated, helping clients not only change problematic thoughts but the underlying feelings. Before you have thoughts and behaviour, you have your emotional reaction which drives the thoughts and behaviours. By addressing emotion, you can make changes that go beyond the issue that brought you to therapy initially. These changes will help you when new problems and challenges enter your life. Therapy is temporary to help you learn the skills to handle anything that comes your way.
I have successfully worked with clients facing a variety of mental health struggles including anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts and feelings, trauma, relationship concerns, men’s issues, and low self-esteem. I also provide play and talk therapy for children and have been working therapeutically with children and families since 2012. Additionally, I have experience providing couples and family therapy.
I offer my services on a sliding scale so we can find a price that fits your budget. Contact me for a 30 minute free consultation, where together we can create a treatment plan that works for you.
