    My Services

    I have been delivering compassionate, client-centred psychotherapy and counselling in Northern Ontario for 14 years.  I am trained and experienced in using evidence-informed interventions for effective change and in helping people find relief from many common but difficult issues, including symptoms of trauma, anxiety and depression, experiences of violence, stress, interpersonal conflict and relationship strain, performance issues, and difficulties with daily functioning.

    I have training in the following interventions:

    -Eye Movement Desensitization and Processing (EMDR)

    -Emotion Focused Family Therapy (EFFT)

    -Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT)

    -Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

    -Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)

    -Motivational Interviewing (MI)

    -Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)


    I also provide 2SLGBTQ+ affirming care. I welcome you to contact me for services from a social worker who can understand your lived experiences, both the joys of being free to be our truest selves and the specific oppression experienced as 2SLGBTQ+ people. I also provide compassionate and affirming care to loved ones of 2SLGBTQ+ people who are looking to learn new ways to support and celebrate the 2SLGBTQ+ people in their lives.

    I provide services both in-person and virtually, including telephone, video, and e-counselling.


    I provide training from a Trauma-Informed perspective in the areas of 2SLGBTQ+ identities and best practices; mental health care; workplace wellness to address burn out, vicarious trauma and moral injury; and suicide intervention skills training.  In partnership with my colleagues, I provide trauma-informed critical incident response.
