About Me

Life gives us challenges. These challenges can include anxiety, depression, difficulties in relationships, or just feeling stuck in life. However, we do not have to face these challenges alone. It is my job to help you identify and eliminate stresses, embrace your strengths, and work towards empowerment. Through collaboration, we together can create an individualized and comprehensive plan to help you create an identity of your own, integrate positive practices into your daily interactions, and grow to live a happy and healthy life.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have been in the field for over 10 years. My approach is client centered but am open to approaches that fit your needs.
I work with all populations, lifestyles and ages.

I started counselling in mid November when I had issues to deal with. Since then this lovely lady has been my counsellor and confidant traveling with me on a new journey. And I hope she continues to do so. An excellent listener and great at goal achievement/targets, and great at putting big issues into perspective. Would strongly recommend to anyone.

A great start to my sessions so far. Really looking forward to seeing how BetterHelp can help me in the near future.
