M.C., R. Psych

I am a Registered Psychologist. I have a B.A. in Psychology and a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology. My areas of interest include working with couples and individual adults in the areas of stress management, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, relationship issues, communication, trauma, domestic violence, and life transitions.

Therapeutic approaches I draw from include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Relational Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Existential Therapy, and Positive Psychology. When working with couples, I draw from the therapeutic approaches of Gottman Couples Therapy, Family Systems Therapy, and Emotion Focused Therapy.

As a counsellor, my mission is to provide a caring, safe, and welcoming environment where clients are encouraged to explore past and present life challenges. I stand for equality, diversity, and empowerment. I value being present with my clients and believe the greatest strengths that I offer are my genuineness, insightfulness, and compassion.
In my spare time I enjoy connecting with my family and friends, taking walks in nature, and being around animals of all sizes and shapes.

I see clients four days a week during the day.
