Areas of Expertise


Family counseling involves working with the entire family unit to identify and address issues that may be affecting the family's overall wellbeing. This type of counseling can help families improve communication, strengthen relationships, and develop healthier patterns of interaction.

Child and adolescent counseling is typically tailored to the age and developmental stage of the young person. The therapist may use play therapy or other techniques to help children and teens express themselves and work through their emotions. They may also work with parents to develop strategies for supporting their child's mental health and wellbeing.

Overall, child, adolescent, and family counseling can be a powerful tool for promoting positive mental health outcomes for young people and their families. By working with a qualified therapist, families can develop the skills and strategies necessary to navigate life's challenges and build stronger, healthier relationships.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapy that focuses on the relationship between a person's thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. CBT is based on the idea that our thoughts influence our emotions and behaviours and that by changing our thoughts, we can change our emotional and behavioural responses to situations.

In CBT, the therapist and client work collaboratively to identify negative or unhelpful patterns of thinking and develop more positive and adaptive ways of thinking. The therapist may use a range of techniques, such as cognitive restructuring, behavioural experiments, and exposure therapy, to help the client challenge their negative thoughts and beliefs and develop new coping strategies.


Psychotherapy has been shown to be effective in treating a wide range of mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, PTSD, eating disorders, and addiction. By providing a safe and supportive space for clients to explore their thoughts and emotions, psychotherapy can help individuals gain insight into their lives, develop coping strategies, and achieve their goals.

Psychiatric Consultation

Psychiatric consultation is a type of mental health service that involves a comprehensive evaluation of a person's mental health, medical history, and current symptoms. A psychiatric consultation is typically conducted by a psychiatrist, who is a medical doctor with specialized training in mental health disorders.

During a psychiatric consultation, the psychiatrist will conduct a thorough assessment of the individual's mental and physical health, taking into account any relevant medical history or current medications. The psychiatrist will also explore the individual's symptoms, emotions, and behaviours to develop a diagnosis and treatment plan.
