Life isn't about finding yourself.  Life is about creating yourself.  George Bernard Shaw

 I provide counselling to children, adolescents, young adults, and families experiencing a wide array of difficulties. As a Psychologist I have supported young people and families struggling with:

  • addiction (drugs, alcohol, gaming)
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • family conflict
  • learning difficulties  
  • difficulties with attention and hyperactivity
  • relationships


My Approach

My practice is based on a number of evidence-based approaches and years of providing quality therapy to young people and families. Because I believe counselling doesn't happen to you, it happens with you, I regularly seek feedback to ensure we are on a path that will help you reach your goals.

Specific approaches I use include:

  • Solution Focused Therapy
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Strategic Family Therapy

I also have an extensive background using activities and experiential exercises in therapy. This can be a very effective approach for people who tend to learn better by doing, as well as those who may have a difficult time remaining seated for 50min!
