Areas of Expertise
Chronic Illness Self-Management
Behaviour changes, including smoking cessation
Self-Image, Confidence, and Worth
I specialize in supporting individuals with chronic illness, and their families. Both in person and securely online. Through individual and family therapy, I work with people to understand the impact of diagnosis and treatment on their life, including in their relationships. I provide support for families to come together and communicate better. I share skills and resources that promote wellness, manage intense life transitions, and improve coping with everyday stressors. I also offer groups and workshops for folks to learn strategies in community.
Counselling, including video counselling, is shown to be effective in helping people make changes to improve their health and wellness.
As a qualified mental health clinician, I offer counselling that is evidence-informed, client-centred, and family friendly.
Additionally, I have experience treating mood & anxiety disorders, addictions, and eating disorders. I work from an inclusive, harm reduction, health at every size framework. I have worked with all ages, including children & adolescents. I welcome folks who identify as LGBTQ+.
Due to the limits of service within my private practice, I will refer to complimentary or more intensive supports, when I am unable to provide counselling in an efficient or timely way given the circumstances.
