Registered Psychologist - Psychologist Lead
Counseling for: Individuals - Families - Groups
Helping individuals find more constructive and satisfying ways to deal with life’s challenges has been the driving force behind my career in psychology. I received my Masters in Counseling Psychology from Yorkville University and use a Cognitive Behavioral Approach in my practice.
Everyday challenges and past experiences shape us as individuals. We do not have the power to undo the past but we do have the power to change how we respond to it. Letting go of negative and self-defeating thoughts and behaviours enable us to heal and move on with our lives. Issues of childhood abandonment, neglect and trauma can unfortunately cause us to react to life in unhealthy ways.
We can feel overwhelmed and not know where to turn at times and making the move to enter therapy is often scary. Through compassionate support and guidance, and a collaborative, non-judgmental therapeutic relationship, I can help you break old patterns that keep you from experiencing happiness in your life. I can help you recognise your own unique strengths and abilities, which will enable you to successfully address life’s challenges so that you can live a healthier and happier life.
My husband and I love to entertain, and cooking is a passion of mine. We are very involved in our community and have worked with a number of not-for-profit organizations over the years. Working part-time allows me to spend time with my brother who has an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI).
