I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with a Masters in Clinical Psychology and a BA in Psychology. The first part of my professional career has been as an entrepreneur and small business owner. After completing an MBA in Leadership – which focused on organizing, motivating and working with people in the workplace – it became clear that I excel at the working with people part. Listening, understanding and knowing what each person needs has been integral to my business’ success. A desire use this skill to help others in a more fulfilling way led to pursuing counselling as my second career.
Because everyone is unique, I draw from a number of clinical techniques and approaches that encourage self-awareness of thoughts, behaviours and emotions. Therapeutic approaches include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), family systems, solution-focused, and trauma-informed, EMDR and Gottman couples therapy. I am an empathetic listener, but my style is also straightforward and practical.
I am also a mother of two young children. When I became a parent, I immersed myself in all the parenting books, as well as seminars and workshops, to help us navigate this unfamiliar and overwhelming world. And while I still love getting my hands on a new parenting book, my kids are the ones that are teaching me about life and love every day. Parenting and relationships have become my passion, and the focus of my practice.
