About Myself

I have a Masters Degree in Counselling Psychology, and I am a graduate of Ryerson University Bachelor of Social Work Program. I have been working in the field for over twenty years, both in the community and in a hospital setting. I have experience with people from all walks of life, ages and stages, who face many challenges. I work from an anti-oppressive framework, which allows us the opportunity to talk about any ‘ism’ that you might experience. I believe that my training and lived experiences are something that can benefit anyone who choses to work with me.

About My Family

I have two brothers and a sister, and three nieces and a nephew. In my '"immediate family", I have two cats and a dog. They keep me busy.

About My Professional Experience

We live in relationship with others. These relationships are fluid. At times, they work well and at other times, they may be rocky. Please, do not despair. I help. couples, individuals, and families identify the challenges interfering in a relationship. I then assist them in developing ways to minimize the impact of these challenges. I help my clients be the best they can be. My basic approach to counselling or therapy is to work in collaboration with a client to move from what is known and familiar into discovering what can be different, and moving towards those possibilities. We all have different turning points in our lives, and I would appreciate the opportunity to work with you to process these and work towards positive outcomes. I have over twenty years of experience working with individuals, couples and groups.

About My Fun Side

My favourite activity is walking with my 3-year-old Australian Shepherd Poodle mix Archie. I walk about 3 kms and he runs at least 5 kms. When we meet other dogs on our journey, there is a great deal of laughter at the dogs' antics.
