I am a licensed social worker with a Master’s Degree in Counselling Psychology and a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work from York University in Toronto. I am registered with the Ontario College of Social Workers and have over 30 years of experience helping people like yourself. I have extensive experience helping couples, individuals and families resolve troubling circumstances. I have worked with people struggling with anger, depression, anxiety, infidelity, parent-teen conflicts, assault and abuse, separation and divorce, trauma, post-traumatic stress, self self-esteem issues, and have done crisis counselling helping individuals with work related stress and violence.
I have experience with Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Family Systems Therapy, Client Centred Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. These are just a few of the effective modalities used to help you and your family get to a better place in life.
My Values and Beliefs:
I am committed to empowering people to overcome difficult situations that they need help with. It is my experience that people often just need the right direction and support to get past their current challenges which is just what counselling can give them.
I have empathy and respect for what people go through, having overcome some very serious personal challenges in my 20’s.
I have watched people become who they wanted to be by taking responsibility for their current situation and doing something about it and you can too.
I believe in people and what they can do once they have a sense of empowerment over their current situation. And that’s what counselling can help them do. Life can get better, much better, if you accept the professional help that is available to you.
