Individual and Couple Counselling Kitchener Waterloo Guelph and Cambridge


Trying to find help?

Let’s start with a conversation.


 How can I help?

I understand finding help can sometimes be hard. That is why I am committed to providing quality services that match the needs of those with whom I work. If I feel that I am unable to provide the support you are looking for I will gladly offer referrals to providers who may better suite you. I want to begin the counselling process with a conversation about what you are looking for and how I can help. To book a time to talk on the phone, click here.



Couples therapy for Kitchener Waterloo Cambridge and Guelph


We all begin a relationship hoping for love that lasts. We may find that the relationship is difficult and that the problems are not getting better. A couples therapist can help. Having someone in the room for your relationship is different than having someone in the room for you. As a couples therapist I am here for your relationship. I am not interested in pointing fingers or having an opinion on your discussions. My job is to help you discover why you struggle to communicate in difficult moments. Learn to talk to each other in a new way. Experience this in sessions and begin taking this skill into your home.

Relationships can both hurt and heal. So often we find it hard to experience the latter. It is at the very moment that the hurt is present in relationships that we have the opportunity to heal the wounds of yesterday. Couples therapy is an way to learn how.

About Myself

I am a calm presence who takes time to listen. We all need to be heard and understood. I am privileged to walk with you to help you make the changes needed to allow you thrive rather than just survive.

You may wonder if I am a good fit for you and your needs. I am a registered psychotherapist specializing in couples and individual therapy. With a previous career in the trades, I understand that not everyone is excited to come to therapy. I seek to create a safe, non-judgmental space where you feel safe to talk about the hard and messy stuff in your life.

I work with couples struggling with issues such as communication, loss of connection, and  infidelity. A major approach I use in couples therapy is Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). EFT works to create a more secure emotional bond between you and your partner. When you and your partner have a more secure bond, you will also see increased satisfaction, intimacy, and trust.

I also work largely with individuals who find themselves stuck in negative behaviours such as addiction, negative thought patterns, or stuck due to traumatic experiences such as abuse, injuries, loss and 

grief due to death or divorce.  We are all unique and therefore a 1-size-fits-all approach isn’t always best. My approach to working with you is tailored to your specific needs. I want to hear about your experiences, explore how you have been impacted, and listen to where you want to see change.

Reaching out for help is hard so thank you for taking the first step. I encourage you to call or email me with further questions and I will do my best to respond within 1 business day.
