WHAT ISSUES I WORK WITH
I treat an array of mental health issues and specialize in the treatment of relationship issues, eating disorders, trauma, and complicated grief. I also work extensively with anxiety, relapse prevention, depression, self-esteem, perfectionism, professional burnout & work stress, personal growth & emotional awareness, and life transitions.
I am a Senior Psychotherapist at FreeMind Therapy and a Registered Social Worker in BC and Alberta. I have over 13 years of counselling experience as a mental health clinician, hold a Bachelor of Social Work degree from Memorial University of Newfoundland and a Master of Social Work from the University of Northern BC.
As your therapist, my intention is help you find personal meaning and fulfillment by holding a nurturing space for you to share your experiences, feelings, and concerns. We will get to the root of any mental or emotional blocks that may be holding you back. Together, we will explore ways to heal from past trauma, improve your connection to yourself and others, and deepen your sense of belonging. A counselling session with me provides a warm, compassionate, and inclusive therapeutic environment for you to heal. I work from an integrated, holistic approach that includes your emotional, mental, physical and spiritual well-being and provides tools and techniques to alleviate your distress.
