I believe that people are resilient, dynamic and have their own strengths which can be the foundation for therapy. My approach is strength-based and incorporates motivational interviewing, solution-focused, and cognitive-behavioural therapy. These approaches have been successful in addressing mental health, relationships, addictions, behavioural concerns, and more.
Ultimately I strive to promote a supportive and non-judgemental environment where my clients can feel confident in reaching their goals. My office is located in a convenient and discrete location and evening and weekend appointments are available. Call anytime and be assured that appointments are often available within 48 hrs.

People can change. I have 20 years of experience helping people to change into a better version of who they want to be. I have been successful at helping children, adolescents, and adults of all ages. People can replace bad habits with good ones, develop healthy coping skills for serious problems, revive failing relationships, and learn to have a good life now and a better hope for the future.
I have experienced the greatest success at helping couples to rebuild destroyed marriages, often when only one partner is willing to attend therapy. I also have an effective method of leading people to overcome the limitations of fear, stress and anxiety, usually within a few weeks.
I approach life from a Christian worldview. I seek after solutions that will benefit all concerned.
I am passionate about enriching couple relationships and I I’d love to help you heal, strengthen, and nurture your relationship. I work with individuals and couples and I have a special interest in working with couples who are parenting young children.
Pregnancy, postpartum, and the early parenting years are particularly vulnerable times for individual women and their relationships. I feel privileged to work with women who are experiencing stress, depression, or anxiety during pregnancy or the postpartum period. Evening and Saturday appointments are available.
I have advanced training in trauma therapy and use EMDR to help people heal. I successfully use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to treat depression and anxiety. I love to work with couples, and I use a Gottman approach to relationship counseling which is very effective in teaching people to strengthen their relationships and reduce conflict.
As an experienced psychologist, I use my years of experience to help my clients resolve their problems. Transitions in life are not always easy, and having support during difficult times can be helpful. My office is in a great location, accessible and has lots of free parking. Call me for a free telephone consultation.
I currently have daytime and late afternoon openings
I have been working with couples since 2010, and have received training from the Couples Institute in California. Their Developmental Model helps people open up to their partners in a way that reduces the anxiety of conflict, by working with attachment theory and increasing differentiation skills. Communicate better – love better.
My background has given me the chance to work with a wide variety of people, from inner-city seniors to women seeking reproductive health services. Social justice is the backbone of my practice and I aspire to treat you with the compassion and sensitivity deserved, due to the trust you have put in me.
