Counselling and Therapy
I'm a Registered Social Worker (RSW) and Therapist, EMDRIA Certified in EMDR, with a private practice located in Kingston, Ontario. I have over 20 years of experience as a therapist and have worked in various community counselling and healthcare settings over the years.
Coping with stress, change, and loss are common times when people reach out for help. I offer confidential, individual counselling and therapy services for adults, using a collaborative, strengths-based perspective. My background includes helping people with issues such as recovery from depression, anxiety, and experiences of grief, loss and trauma. Involvement can be short or longer-term, depending on the type of issues to be addressed and individual needs.
I draw from a variety of therapeutic approaches, including cognitive-behavioural therapy, mindfulness-based therapies, insight-oriented therapy, solution-focused therapy, and EMDR. In choosing approaches, I'm guided by what seems to be the best fit for the person I'm working with, taking into consideration the issues they're seeking help for, where they're at, their preferences and learning styles. My practice values diversity and is LGBTQ affirming.
