Helping people achieve a joy-filled life, a life of purpose, has always been my passion.

I love people, and love hearing their story, their trials and their strengths. Many people don’t know that they have such strength.

I have always found it an honor that individuals would let me join their journey.

The fact that you are seeking assistance shows me that you can do it. That you want to be the person you’ve always dreamed you’d be.

You wish you could wake up tomorrow and life as it is, would be different. Sometimes it takes sitting down, and looking at where you are and where you want to be and finding the way to get there.

I am a Registered Social Worker, Registered Nurse and a Certified Psychiatric Mental Health practitioner. I have worked in the field of mental health for 11 years.

In my experience I have found that:

At times a mental health assessment would really help you understand you.“Why you feel the way you do.” I have seen so many people obtain renewed life with the help of Psychiatry. This can be facilitated with a much shorter wait time than available in public sectors. Our assessment, then meeting with the Psychiatrist, along with my follow up achieve this.

The counselling techniques used in our one to one sessions cognitive behavior therapy and dialectical behavior therapy have proven effectiveness.

Perhaps I could help your teens and family conflict. I have worked at length with youth at risk and in our youth justice system. I found that always seeing the best in our youth worked to help them attain their potential.

Adoption was an area I enjoyed for many years. Open adoption has changed the face of adoption, and I was glad to be a part of that change.

I have always loved what I do, that is why I am still doing it. I hope I can work with you!
