Areas of Expertise

I work with adults as well as family and loved ones. I  specialize in working with neurodivergent clients such as autism (Asperger’s), ADHD, learning disabilities, giftedness, as well as anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues or life stressors.

I use an eclectic approach based on my client’s unique needs. The foundation of my work is Person-Centred Therapy, which is based on unconditional acceptance and positive regard and encourages the client to develop their own solutions.  I am trained in various evidence-based and other modalities listed below, which I use as appropriate:

  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)

  • Behaviour Therapy

  • Motivational Interviewing

  • Mindfulness

  • Solution Focused Therapy

  • Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) 

Professional Coaching

Coaching - also known as life coaching - involves encouraging, counselling, and motivating clients on various personal issues. During this process we identify your goals and potential obstacles holding you back. Next, we develop a plan and practice strategies to overcome these obstacles to meet your goals.

The coaching relationship seeks to:

✓Create a vision for what you would like to achieve in your coaching sessions 

✓Develop strategies and skills 

✓Assist you in applying the strategies 

✓Identify solutions rather than focusing on the problems 

✓Invite you to do more of what is working 

✓Help you develop your own resources that you can continue to use long-term 

✓Promote your self-awareness and personal growth 

✓Provide assistance to "do it here and now" during your coaching sessions 

✓Create a space for accountability in order to help you with productivity
