During the counselling process parent(s)/guardian (s) can be brought into some sessions with the permission of the adolescent/teen client.  

Adult counselling

I work with individual adults of all ages. Although I work with both men and women, I have a special interest and experience in working on women's transitional issues. 

Marriage/couples counselling

Counselling will begin with both partners but during the counselling process, it may be necessary to meet with each partner individually at times. Working with couples tends to be done in-person. 

What would it be like like if you woke up tomorrow and felt better?

I am committed to meeting you where you are at as much as possible. Together, we can identify the process that best serves you.


I use a personalized approach blending creativity, life coaching skills and various talk therapies to allow flexibility to meet your needs and wants and help you overcome your unique stressors and challenges. 


Working out of my office in Bowmanville, I work with clients in the area. I also offer on-line sessions for those who cannot make it to my office.


For scheduling, I hold in-person sessions during the day and evenings on Monday through Thursday and during the day on Friday. I may be able to accommodate occasional sessions outside of this time frame. We can talk about what works best for both of us.


Individual therapy sessions are typically 55 minutes and couples sessions are 80 minutes. There is flexibility in scheduling longer sessions. Sessions are spaced out to meet your needs and can be adjusted throughout the counselling process. 


$120 per session for individuals and $150 per session for couples. A sliding scale may be possible when discussed ahead of time.
