I am a Registered Clinical Therapist specializing in Life Transitions.

Individuals, couples and families can feel anxious, stressed, overwhelmned and in some cases 'stuck' when changes occur. Counselling and/or coaching can support the process to move forward from surviving to thriving.


It’s my sincere desire to foster healthy relationships within family systems, helping clients navigate life’s inevitable chaos, providing the tools to grow and maintain open lines of communication, and raise children in an ever-changing environment. 

Feeling anxious, overwhelmed or 'stuck'?

Together we will come up with a plan for your well-being when life's challenges have you feeling stuck.  I support you with a client-centered approach, focused on your needs, with strategies to help you evolve.​​​ I use an integrative counselling/coaching approach based in various psychological theoritical perspectives.
