Counselling Services

Counselling Focus | Approach

I work with individuals having difficulty navigating life transitions, such as graduating from or returning to school, finding or losing a job, relocating, getting married or ending a relationship, becoming a parent, changing careers, experiencing an illness or injury, losing a loved one, or entering into retirement.

When it comes to career related transitions, guidance is tailored to a person’s unique career history and circumstances (e.g., gender, ability, culture, ethnicity, etc.).

I also specialize in assisting parents of food-allergic children, helping them navigate and successfully manage the social and emotional aspects of living with food allergies.

My style is warm, attentive, and collaborative. I take a practical, strengths-based and action-oriented approach, with a holistic focus on the therapeutic relationship. I am passionate about helping clients identify and utilize their strengths and resources, deepen their self-awareness, achieve their goals, and have more meaningful and productive lives.

Payment is due on the date of your appointment and may be made by e-Transfer or Visa. A receipt will be provided upon payment.

Phone or Video Sessions

I am currently offering all appointments via telehealth. This can include phone or video therapy sessions. Telehealth allows clients to continue getting support while keeping safety and health in mind. Additionally, telehealth therapy sessions can be more easily accessible and less time consuming for clients. Video sessions are conducted through a secure, encrypted telehealth platform.



In order to provide appointments to other clients, two business days’ (M-F) notice is required when cancelling or rescheduling. Late cancellations and missed appointments will be charged at the full session fee.



Your workplace extended health benefits program may cover the cost of counselling provided by a Registered Clinical Counsellor or a Canadian Certified Counsellor. Please consult your human resource department or insurance company provider to verify your coverage. Receipts not submitted for insurance claims may be tax deductible under medical expenses.
