Serving Centre Hastings & Tweed, Ontario
I am committed to providing an emotionally safe, compassionate, authentic, non-judgmental and respectful counselling environment. Where we, in a collaborative space of trust and acceptance, can explore the barriers that may stand in the way of you feeling content, purposeful and whole in your life. My approach is grounded in the belief that we all have the capacity for change and continued growth, that no problem is insurmountable and that each client possesses intrinsic wisdom and is the expert in their own experience. My aim is to be by your side with support, understanding, warmth and openness as you embark on your healing journey.
I work with individuals, couples, adults and teens specializing in trauma, PTSD, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, grief and relationship issues. I employ evidence-based, trauma-informed techniques including narrative, psychodynamic, cognitive behavioural, mindfulness and attachment theory. I am passionate about helping each of my clients heal, awaken to their potential and begin living more satisfying lives.
Power of Empathy:
I’m in it with you.
I’m not here to fix you.
I’m not here to feel it for you.
I’m here to feel it with you and let you know you’re not alone.

Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we’ll ever do.
Dr. Brene Brown
Be the silent watcher of your thoughts and behavior. You are beneath the thinker. You are the stillness beneath the mental noise. You are the love and the joy beneath the pain.
