Stress Counselling

Stress is a normal part of life, but it can become debilitating if it gets out of control affecting our school, work, home and relationships.

There is good stress and bad stress and it is all around us. Stress can be used as a tool for motivation, i.e., a work or school deadline encourages us to get the work done. However, if we have a large number of unchecked stressors in our lives and few to no coping mechanisms, then stress can become a very serious problem, affecting us both physically and mentally.

My experience as a Career Counsellor and a Secondary School Teacher for 20 years has given me a unique perspective on the prevalence of stress in both work and academic environments.

Why Work With Me?


In my 13 years as a Registered Psychotherapist I have grown by engaging in continuing education, meeting regularly with peers to share best practices, developing a broader toolbox of appropriate clinical interventions, and limiting my caseload so that I can be present and focused for each client and each session.


My service to clients is based on the principles of both strengths-based therapy and client-focused therapy. Using both of these techniques allows me to be present and focused on client strengths and client needs.


I do my best to schedule clients as soon as possible in my very busy practice. Often a cancellation by another client will open up an earlier session for you. There are no fixed number of psychotherapy sessions for each client - it will be a discussion between client and therapist about how many sessions the client would like to have.
