Are you feeling stuck in your life and not sure what steps to take? Do you ever feel overwhelmed and anxious by every day issues? Feeling like you have no where to turn to deal with your challenges? Working together I can support you in finding the right path for you, step by step. In a comfortable, non-judgmental environment, we will find the solutions that are meaningful to your life, and help you get where you want to be. I believe that even the smallest changes can have a great impact on mental health and quality of life.
I'm a registered social worker with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers, a Canadian Certified Counsellor with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association, and a member of the Canadian Association of Social Workers. My active status in these governing bodies ensures the protection of clients and the continued protection of the social work practice. If you are using insurance benefits for reimbursement please check with your provider to ensure they cover social workers in the psychological services.
I believe that we all have the capacity to find our own solutions; sometimes we just need a helping hand getting there. I work with Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Narrative approaches, tailoring to each individual's needs and experiences. My counselling approach is often solution focused to help you start creating positive change in your life right away.
I am experienced in supporting clients from various cultural backgrounds and ethnicities that may be experiencing struggling to adapt to new environments and expectations. I also work with clients dealing with workplace stress, burnout, parenting, relationships, sexual and intimacy issues.
I can also offer support through video or telephone counselling. Email or call me at 613-701-7672 for a free consultation.
