At this time, my practice is reserved to individuals and couples over the age of 18.

Theoretical Orientation

My bias is towards the positive. For that reason, I work from a narrative therapy perspective where I help you write 'the other side' of your problem story. Using narrative questions and curiosity, my hope is to help you shift your focus and see things in new ways. 


In addition to working through a narrative lens, I appreciate that our experiences are made up of thoughts, behaviours, and relationships. For that reason, I also weave cognitive and behavioural theory as well as attachment theory into our sessions.


This article expresses how I approach therapy and answers the question I hear from clients most often: "Aren't you going to tell me what to do?"

"The person is not the problem; The problem is the problem."
