Welcome! I have over 10 years of experience counselling individuals and leading group therapy in a variety of contexts. My work as a Registered Psychotherapist is client centered, and incorporates physical and psychosocial education to help clients toward their goals. I have a PhD in Educational Counselling from the University of Ottawa, where I studied psychotherapy processes and researched eating disorder treatment.
Beyond counselling work, I try to laugh with my husband, grow with our children, like the idea of staying fit, read to better understand our world, and get cranky when I'm hungry or tired.
I like helping individuals negotiate personal and professional development. I seek to recognize the needs of students and young adults, and support parents as they care for themselves and their loved ones. I have extensive experience in sport and working with athletes. Whatever the challenge, I use evidence-based treatments to understand the past, find purpose in the present, and encourage growth moving forward.
My clinical work is supervised by Dr. Barbara Virley, Registered Psychologist.
