“Find a job you enjoy doing, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
I can confidently say that I do what I do because it’s not “work”, it’s a privilege and an honor that I can hold a safe space and provide a non-judgmental ear for you when you call. After years of seeing clients, teaching counselling skills and supervising therapists, I have taken on the important role of consulting with you to ensure you are best matched with one of our therapists who aligns to meet your therapeutic needs.
With my 23 years of diverse experience and expertise in a plethora of challenging issues brought to therapy; I will listen, explore, discuss, answer your questions, in assisting to alleviate the nerves that comes with seeking therapy.

As a Trauma Specialist I work with individuals that have experienced childhood trauma, emotional deprivation, abuse, PTSD, simple and complex traumas. Additionally, my other area of expertise is working with couples to thrive and excel in their relationship. I cherish the opportunity to assist anyone through providing genuine, empathetic, and caring support whilst gently challenging clients to having a new way of thinking that will be to their best advantage.
When not working, I love to travel and exploring new adventures with my husband of 30 years, spending time with my family and friends, or curled up in bed watching Hallmark or reading a good book.
