My passion is working with young adults and couples, especially those entering marriage, parenthood, or other times of transition, with a focus on prevention and education.  I also equip people to better manage depression, anxiety, and other mental health concerns so that they are able to live a more focused and satisfying life.

If I do not have training in a particular area of need or if for whatever reason you decide to seek services elsewhere, I will gladly refer you to another counsellor or specialist.  One of the most important factors in counselling outcome is after all, the relationship and trust that is formed between counsellor and client.  It sometimes takes a few tries to find the right fit.
