I help individuals & their loved ones struggling with addictive behaviours and/or mental health challenges find peace, balance, and meaning in their lives.

Do any of the following apply to you? 

  • What was at one time manageable is no longer tolerable and something has to change.
  • You are beginning to see how the behaviour is affecting other areas of your life in negative ways (e.g. school, work, home, relationships, health).
  • Perhaps you have already tried to solve this problem on your own or found that the services that others have recommended for you just don’t fit.

There is hope! 

I have helped hundreds of individuals reclaim their lives, pursue their dreams, restore relationships, and break free from problematic behaviours.

I love what I do.

I have been working in the field of Mental Health & Addictions for close to 20 years providing client centered supports in a variety of treatment settings. I bring to my practice a wealth of experience, strength, & hope. As a person with lived experience, my “addiction” today is obtaining new skills and knowledge to better support clients in my care.

It is an honour to witness positive changes that clients make as a result of our time together. Call for a FREE Consultation. I look forward to the opportunity of working with you and supporting your recovery goals,
