About me

I am a clinical social worker with over 25 years of experience working in the mental health field. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, life challenges, and abuse.

My counseling style is active listening and interactive. I believe all people deserve respect, and compassion. My approach combines self awareness, identifying the conflict and your experience and response to it. There are several evidence based approaches to untangling our emotions from our experiences and our response to emotional trauma. I believe we can all experience a richer more fulfilling life when we understand and are more aware of ourselves and our environment.
I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Peggy has helped me tremendously navigate some huge life changes and stressors. I have seen serious improvement in my depression/anxiety levels, and have found it reasonable and realistic to incorporate her suggestions into my routine. She is an empathetic listener, and her experience shows in how perceptive she is. I'm very thankful I found her.

Peggy is a fantastic listener. The way she is able to help me better understand myself by simply acknowledging what I've said and either rephrasing or challenging my words is amazing. Her caring and supportive demeanour mean I always feel comfortable and heard.
