I am a Registered Social Worker with over 15 years experience in mental health and addictions.

I can help you to explore, understand, accept, manage or change difficult feelings and behaviours.

I can help you to feel your best version of yourself, and to bring your best self forward into your relationships and life pursuits.


In a typical series of sessions, with your permission, I can help you to:

  • feel curious about present-day symptoms,  

  • understand, manage, or change symptoms,

  • soften the present-day impact of past experiences,

  • resolve unexpressed feelings,

  • set goals to break stuck patterns,

  • experience yourself at your best.



My practice is now mostly virtual, with some in-person spots available.  I am available only for weekday appointments between 9am-2:30pm.  

My Fee is $165, or, ask about my reduced fee. 


Payments can be made by cash, cheque, or e-transfer.


Cancellations must be made 48 hours in advance to avoid fees.


To make an appointment submit a query below.  I look forward to working with you.

Note: if you need immediate support, you can call 911 or Hamilton's Crisis Team at 905-972-8338.

My primary current influence is a modality called Internal Family Systems (IFS). I am Level 3 trained with the IFS Institute, and I participate in various IFS consultation groups and continuous learning programs.

I have also trained in Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) (Level 1 with Les Greenberg) and Emotion Focused Therapy for Individuals (EFIT) (Level 1 & 2 online with Sue Johnson and colleagues).

Prior to my training in the IFS modality, I worked at the Centre for Addictions and Mental Health (CAMH).  There, I used various modalities including Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Mindfulness-based approaches.

In addition to working in my private practice, I occasionally co-lead psycho-educational groups with my local Family Health Team on topics including depression, anxiety, trauma, and alcohol use. 

I am always deepening my skills and competence in being trauma-informed and anti-oppressive.

My lived experience is as a white, straight, able-bodied, CIS-gendered woman. I am a married mother. 

My practice approach is secular and evidence-based.
