Welcome

Sometimes in life we need a helping hand of someone we trust to talk to in confidence. If your problems seem overwhelming it may be time to seek the advice of a caring professional. As a registered psychotherapist, mental health nurse and art therapist, I am interested in listening to you, understanding your needs and helping you through this difficult time. Feel comfortable to call or email me with any questions you have about my services.

Psychotherapy, Art Therapy and
Mental Health Counselling

Psychotherapy and counselling are therapeutic techniques which utilize an interpersonal relationship between the therapist and the patient for the purpose of psychological well-being. There is considerable overlap between the terms psychotherapy and counselling, but they are distinct approaches.

COVID 19

I am currently booking online therapy appointments for all new and existing clients for psychotherapy and supervision. I am still here to support you to meet your mental health needs and provide continuity of care during this time of social distancing.

Psychotherapy

Utilizes ‘talk therapy’ to develop insight and self-understanding about a range of issues or concerns. This can include general stress, anxiety, and feelings of depression. Gaining insight about issues that are causing strain or difficulty in one’s life can have a positive impact on coping skills and resilience.

Art Therapy

Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy that utilizes creative means to express thoughts and feelings. Just like psychotherapy it can help to understand and manage difficult behaviours, feelings, improve self-esteem and awareness. There is no need to be an artist to do art therapy, just the desire to try something creative and self-expressive.

Clinical Supervision

I am a member of the CRPO in good standing since April 2015, a member of the College of Nurses of Ontario since 2001, and a licensed psychiatric nurse with the Canadian Nurses Association since 2003. I have a PhD in Psychology from Walden University focusing on the ethical implications of online practice as well as a licensed art therapist with the Canadian Art Therapy Association.

I have met the competencies related to supervision as required by the CRPO as well as the CCPA and I currently supervise Registered Psychotherapists, Masters of Counselling students and art therapy students qualifying to be members of the CRPO. I provide supervision both online as well as in-person.
