About Me

Recognizing you want help and reaching out for it takes courage and isn’t easy. I believe that we all do the best with what we know and when we know better we do better (Maya Angelou). When you are ready I would be honoured to be the one who helps you know and do better. My approach is client centered and I work with you where you are at, at your pace and on what you are ready to focus on. I also practice from a strength based and trauma informed perspective. I aim to provide a space to do this that is comfortable, open and free of any bias or judgement; where you feel respected and

I have over 15 years experience working with children, youth, parents, families and adults and have supported a wide range of challenges such as anxiety, depression, ADHD, ASD, OCD, emotion regulation, anger management, relationship challenges, life changes and transitions, self esteem, life stressors, and parenting challenges.

I strongly believe in the cognitive behavioural therapy approach and that the things we think and say to ourselves in our minds has enormous impact on how we feel and how we are able to conduct ourselves. When we are able to recognize our unhelpful thinking and balance it out with more realistic, positive, helpful thoughts we can and do feel a lot better! That’s one of the reasons why I’ve chosen to be part of online-therapy.com and help people learn the tools strategies associated with CBT. So that you can gain more control over your thoughts and feelings and feel that you have some agency in impacting your day-to-day ability to feel better.

"I am just new to this program but I am already so impressed and feeling very supported. This program gives me more control over my progress and allows me to do more work on myself rather than the limitations of going to a therapist every other week."
