Registered Psychotherapist

"There are no straight lines
in the universe. Life doesn't
travel in perfectly straight lines.
It moves more like a winding river.
More often than not,
you can only see to the next bend,
and only when you
reach that next turn
can you see more" -T. Harv Eker

What to Expect


At Winding River Counselling you can expect to feel accepted wholeheartedly, as you are, and feel safe to share anything that you bring into counselling. Whether meeting in the office or in a virtual space, you will be met with warmth and compassion, and we will work together to foster healing and personal growth.

I offer psychotherapy (counselling) to individuals seeking to improve their mental health, relationships, or resources to adapt/respond to life stressors. I believe that healing is possible through connection and positive relationships. My approach is person-centered, trauma-informed, culturally responsive, and anti-oppressive. I use strategies from cognitive-behavioural, acceptance and commitment, and emotion focused therapies to support clients.
