Brighter Path Counselling

I believe that a good, therapeutic relationship with a counsellor can help you create change. My goal is to walk beside you on your path.

About Me

With over 17+ years of experience, I understand and appreciate the importance of having a therapist you can trust. My goal is to support you in examining your thoughts and feelings, while achieving a greater sense of self worth. I have worked for McMaster University providing counselling for students for the past 16 years. Before coming to McMaster I have worked in a variety of settings providing counselling for a range of life challenges, including women who had experienced the loss of a partner, individuals that had experienced abuse, and youth that had experienced emotional and behavioural struggles.
