My specialities include Addictions, Trauma Treatment (including PTSD), Stress Management and Critical Incident Stress Response and I do possess expertise and experience with respect to a variety of other problems.

I have had over 13 years’ experience supporting people with diverse cultural, religious and socioeconomic backgrounds battling various life challenges.  I provide an environment and develop clinical relationships where anyone, irrespective of their self-definition or life experience, can feel welcomed and supported.

I work from a strength-based, client-centred stance and utilize CBT, Solution Focused, Motivational Interviewing, Trauma-informed, EFT, Mindfulness and other approaches as deemed to be appropriate.
