Dealing with life’s challenges isn’t always easy.

However, difficult experiences such as abuse, trauma, anxiety and depression don’t have to prevent you from enjoying life, creating fulfilling relationships, or achieving your personal and professional goals. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, stuck on the wrong path, or just ready to change things for the better, having a professional on your side could make all the difference.

In my Guelph practice, I offer compassionate, effective, and confidential therapy for a range of issues. I can work with you to address your symptoms, improve essential coping skills and resolve the underlying problem so you can continue on with your life. If that sounds like the kind of support you need, contact me.

Finding a therapist who offers the support you need and who you feel comfortable with is important. I offer a free 15 minute phone consultation for any questions you might have. Also, if at the end of our first meeting you decide my services aren't a fit for you, I won't charge you for that appointment.

The world can feel like a better place.
