Professional Background

Professional Experience

I was born and raised in the London area. I have been married since 2000 and have four children. I am a graduate of the University of Western Ontario, where I obtained an Honors Bachelor of Science degree in Physiology and Psychology and a Masters of Education degree in Counselling.

I have been providing formal psychotherapy, counselling and coaching since 1996. Throughout my counselling career, I have been serving individuals, couples and families. I have also consulted with professional treatment providers as well as to case managers and insurance adjusters/adjudicators. Since 2010, I have worked as a Clinical Manager where I have been providing supervision, consultation and direction to counsellors and providing clinical insights and consultation to referral sources (e.g., STD and LTD case managers, Occupational Health and HR personnel, and other organizational leaders/managers).

Alongside my various employment roles, I have been providing counselling and psychotherapy through my private counselling practice. I typically provide counselling at my office, but I also provide counselling over the telephone and in the offices or homes of my clients.

I am passionate about helping individuals, couples and families function at their full potential - helping them become whole, healthy and vibrant. To learn more about my counselling background and approach, please see Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I am also passionate about assisting organizations operate at their full potential by becoming more effective and efficient, from a Human Resources perspective. I believe it is critical to have the right people, doing the right things with the right attitude. To achieve this, employees and volunteers require great leadership and management as well as having great team dynamics and appropriate resources and tools to do their job with excellence. I believe that leaders and managers have a tremendous impact on people's general well-being and workplace performance and productivity. Given the above, my desire is to provide support to leaders and managers to assist them in their critical roles.
