About This Practitioner

I am a Master's degree Counsellor registered with the Canadian Counselling & Psychotherapy Association and am also an EMDRIA Certified EMDR Therapist. After working for 10 years in the non-profit sector, I shifted gears into private practice and opened Live Happy Counselling. My expertise is trauma therapy, which includes working with anxiety and post-traumatic, grief and traumatic loss, depression, and life transitions. 

I believe that as humans, we are capable of self-growth, healing, and experiencing happiness. I believe that the beginning of working through problems often needs to start with developing emotional coping skills (the ability to gain control over those strong emotions that come on like tidal waves and seem to hijack our rational brain). Once we develop the ability to regulate emotion, working through presenting problems becomes more tolerable, and emotional healing begins.
