Counselling & Coaching

"To be human
is to become visible
while carrying
what is hidden
as a gift to others"

-David Whyte

I work with people of all types, both in person (in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada) and online (via Skype or Zoom). I have a special interest in serving those who identify as artistic, creative, gifted, and/or highly sensitive. I assist individuals with a variety of issues, including:

Anxiety & depression;
Career crises & vocational identity;
Grief and bereavement;
High sensitivity;
Major life transitions;
Personal growth;
Relationship & family issues (including raising gifted kids);
Sexual orientation & gender identity; and,
Spirituality & existential issues.

  • I care deeply about you and your particular life challenges.

  • I'm dedicated to helping you reach your important and unique life goals.

  • I understand (personally, professionally, and academically) how complex life can be and the many difficulties it can present. I also know that change is always possible.

  • I am a Registered Psychotherapist, have a Masters degree in Spiritual Care & Psychotherapy, and am a member of the Ontario Association of Mental Health Professionals (OAMHP).

I recently completed a PhD in the field of Social and Cultural Health Studies at Brock University in St. Catharines, ON, Canada. My research interests revolve around giftedness, mental health, depth psychology, spirituality, nature, and place—and where these topics overlap and intersect.


I share my thoughts with you.
