About Me

I have been working full time in the mental health field for 40+ years. I have extensive experience working on multidisciplinary teams in both Children's Mental Health Centres & Community Health Centres. Thus I am very comfortable working with other health professionals, in the event this would be helpful for you to achieve your goals. I also have extensive experience working with social service agencies, insurance companies, government services, etc. Over the decades I have developed working relationships with a large network of other professionals. These can be drawn on as necessary to support or advocate for my clients.

Simultaneously, my clients have the privacy and discretion provided by a small private practice. I have no office staff; even my off-site book keeper does not know the names of my clients.
