I'm a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, Certified Grief-Informed Professional and Certified Specialist for Anxiety Disorders. What all that means is that I've got specialist training in - and a passion for helping people heal from past traumas and manage experiences of grief and loss and anxiety. But these aren't the only concerns my clients bring to therapy. Some find that past traumas are negatively affecting their relationships and functioning in the present and they're ready to find healing. Some clients are feeling low, stressed or anxious - maybe unsure about the future of a relationship, grieving a loss, or just feeling that they're not living the life they were meant to lead. Whatever your needs, I am here to offer support in ways that are uniquely tailored to you and your goals. If you're interested in therapy and not sure if we'd be a good fit, please get in touch and we can start with a free phone consultation. 

I view psychotherapy as a collaborative process. I believe that you, as a client, are the expert in your own experience. I, too, bring expertise to our relationship - in my years of clinical experience and training and expertise in a range of systems of change and therapeutic approaches. So, we're really working together to help you gain insight and clarity, uncover patterns, develop new perspectives, heal from past experiences and learn strategies to manage ongoing challenges. Therapy can help you find balance and live more authentically, with greater self-trust and self-confidence. 

 

All my work is founded on anti-racism, anti-oppression and trauma-informed principles.

​Everyone with a desire for change, healing or transformation is welcome.

WHO ARE MY THERAPY CLIENTS?

Therapy: FAQ

PRIVATE INDIVIDUALS
ages 25 and up

People like you and me! You don't need a referral.
Everyone has different experiences, concerns and goals for therapy and I'll work with you to identify goals and create a custom therapy plan to support you.
There is no silly reason to come to therapy and you don't need to have any diagnosed issue. Sometimes we all need a little support. In fact, it's a sign of wisdom to know when to ask for help!

VETERANS: Retired Canadian Armed Forces Personnel and RCMP

As a registered Mental Health Professional with Medavie Blue Cross I work with veteran RCMP and Canadian Armed Forces personnel. I am experienced helping with operational stress injuries including anxiety, depression and PTSD.  Loneliness and isolation, relationship difficulties and other concerns may compound your distress.
Direct billing is available and no prescription or referral is necessary.

REFUGEES

I provide in-person and online psychotherapy to refugees, paid directly by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. All refugee claimants are welcome to contact me. You will need a referral note for psychotherapy from a physician or nurse practitioner.

AVIATION PROFESSIONALS
Pilots, Flight Attendants & More

TEACHERS & 
PROFESSORS

Educators in all sectors

OTHERS
Professionals, Parents,
People experiencing life transitions

Working in the airline/aviation industry brings its own unique challenges and stressors and it can help to talk things through in a confidential setting with a professional therapist who understands your unique circumstances and can help you to manage the professional and personal challenges in your life. No referral is necessary.

I work with professionals who work for all companies/airlines. Added bonus for Westjet employees is direct billing through Medavie Blue Cross. 

Educators in all sectors face challenges in the workplace including greater demands on their time and energy, managing people/relationships and issues around job transitions or satisfaction. Educators also focus much of their energy outwards, on helping others, and this can leave them feeling drained and depleted and sometimes lead to burnout. 

No referral is necessary for therapy and most health insurance plans will cover the costs. 

My clients are varied and bring their own, unique experiences and things they'd like to work on. They include professionals at various stages in their careers, parents (including those who are struggling with the choices and behaviours of their teen or adult child), people in the "sandwich" generation who have multiple responsibilities caring for family and empty nesters and those without family. In other words, my clients are varied and the free phone consultation is a great way to see if therapy is something you'd like to do for yourself. 

No referral is necessary.

FREE 10 MINUTE CONSULTATION

Before you book your first session, feel free to request a free, no-obligation 10 minute phone consultation. This is an opportunity to connect with me and ask any questions you may have before booking an appointment.
