We’ve all heard that life is short, but I think when we really face what that means, we can finally let go of fear. I love it when I can help a client to live the way they want to live and be who they want to be. Change is absolutely possible.

My work is informed by over 7 years of experience developing mental health support programs at Carleton University and the University of Calgary. My research has focused on procrastination and self-control issues, the alliance between therapist and client, and the link between mental health and grades. I am a Registered Psychotherapist under the supervision of Dr. David Smith, CPsych.
