COVID-19 Update: I am committed to providing counselling (safely) during this pandemic. Phone sessions can work well; open to your ideas! Call me to discuss.
Thank you for visiting my website. As a Registered Psychologist since 1997, and a therapist for many years before that, it has been my pleasure to work with individuals, couples and families.
Please note! This site is currently being redeveloped and more detail will be available soon. In the meantime, do get in touch if you have questions.
My particular areas of therapeutic focus include: recovery from historical issues (abuse, PTSD); substance use; concurrent disorders (substance use problems and mental health problems); emotional difficulties (anxiety; grief; loss; depression); life transitions (parenting, career, relationship, retirement); and chronic illness.
Just so you know, I will listen to you and support you in managing the issues that bring you to therapy. I deeply appreciate the effort and commitment people demonstrate as they work through their concerns; I consider it a privilege to assist in that process. Having had a diverse, non-traditional life it is likely I have some experience working through issues similar to yours, with clients and/or personally. I also have experience managing the impact of your own or a loved one’s profound physical illness.
I conduct a broad variety of Psychological Assessments, including Assessments related to: family issues (access, parental capacity, s.211), PTSD (military, police), psychological profiles (legal, required).
