Do you feel overwhelmed with life, added stress and are trying to decide which direction to go? I assure you that you are not alone in your struggles. I know it can be difficult to find the right therapist and I would love to help you on your journey.

I enjoy working with clients who want to make positive changes in their lives, through the process of being vulnerable and accepting that we as humans are not perfect. As we know, the best results come from those who put the work in. That being said, homework is part of the process with this type of researched-based therapy. The purpose of the homework is to help you work on and gain new skills that will benefit you throughout your life. 

Areas I am most passionate about are self-esteem, depression, anxiety, and end-of-life. I support clients faced with discrimination and enjoy working with all clients especially those from Indigenous cultures.

Together we can create the necessary changes for you to reach your goals. We all have challenges, and I believe that you can overcome those challenges and achieve your goals with the right tools and strategies. Part of my job is to facilitate your learning of new skills. I do this while offering a safe space based on the values of validation, empathy, and collaboration.

Each visit will consist of a routine outcome measure to monitor your progress and help you determine when you are ready to graduate from therapy. Successful therapy results in a reduction in negative moods, the achievement of learning and applying new skills, and an improvement in overall well-being.

Are you ready to make positive changes in your life, and gain new skills? I would love to connect with you.
