“True freedom is being without anxiety about imperfection” — Sixth-century Zen master Sengchan

I consider myself an eclectic and integrative counsellor who may combine therapeutic approaches based on the needs and goals of my clients.  I have experience working with and/or training in a variety of scientifically-proven therapies.  These include:

  • Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Mindfulness (MBCT, MBSR, ACT and DBT)
  • Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)
  • Family Systems and Couples
  • Grief therapy
  • Narrative
  • Strengths based
  • Interpersonal
  • Humanistic
  • Attachment focused
  • Solution Focused (SFT)

I have also been trained in and have worked in a diversity and multicultural framework and strive to offer an LGBTQ positive environment.

I offer counselling at offices near downtown Hamilton and Burlington and I offer phone/online counselling.  I am also happy to conduct sessions in your home, hospital or hospice on occasion if necessary to accommodate locations and schedules.  Please know I may offer a sliding scale based on income.
