Welcome. Feel free to browse my site, and contact me with any questions. I am happy to arrange a phone conversation prior to booking an initial appointment, to see if this might be the right treatment match for you.
All services are provided on an individual basis at the present time. Group treatment options may be available in the future. I offer flexible treatment plans, and scheduling options. All treatment plans are made in collaboration with you, the client, to meet your individual treatment goals. I try to work together with your family doctor, psychiatrist, and other members of your circle of care to provide you with the best service possible. It is important that you have a family physician while you are attending treatment with me.
I have been working as a concurrent disorders specialist and therapist for the past 19 years, and draw on my experience with many mental health challenges as well as day to day life stressors, such as anxiety, depression, grief, trauma/traumatic loss, addictions, and chronic pain in designing individualized treatment plans. I am a registered social worker, and registered psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. I am a Blue Cross Service provider for Canadian Veterans and their partners, and am a TEMA approved therapist. All services are confidential with only the legal exceptions. It should be noted that I do not provide acute crisis services, and clients in crisis should call the crisis line at 613-544-4229 or go to the nearest emergency room.
I look forward to hearing from you.
