Sometimes, life and relationships can be difficult, full of challenges, and perhaps not what you had hoped for. Sometimes, you find yourself in the middle of a storm and you long for some relief. Sometimes, it’s just helpful for you to talk with someone who will understand.
As a therapist, I offer a safe, encouraging, and caring place for us to talk about your struggles. I consider it a privilege to journey with you as we face your problems together.
I work with a diverse population of clients seeking assistance for abuse/trauma, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationship and family issues, and more. My passion is helping clients who have experienced abuse, violence, and trauma. I also have sound experience treating children, adolescents, and their families. I take great pleasure in working with all of my clients as they achieve healing and growth.

A Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) holistically believes that your relationships with others (for example, with your family members) represent an essential aspect of your life and personal well-being and that your counselling process is more effective if he or she fully considers all of your relationships within her or her treatment plan for you.
