Registered Marriage and Family Therapist and Sex Therapist

I am a Registered Social Worker (MSW), a Registered Marriage and Family Therapist, (RMFT) an Approved Supervisor of Marriage and Family Therapy trainees and a Registered Sex Therapist.

My experience ranges from working with individuals living with serious mental illness to providing therapy for individuals and couples experiencing major life changes, coping with trauma, and/or relationship difficulties.

For 15 rewarding years I worked with children, parents and families in both outpatient and residential services at the Children's Centre Thunder Bay before leaving in 2007 to pursue private practice, with a specialization in adult, individual, couple, and sex therapy. Further, I train extensively throughout the North and teach as a Sessional Lecturer in the Social Work Department at Lakehead University.
