Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a short term therapy that originated from Albert Ellis and Aaron Beck. It is an evidence-based model that has demonstrated good results, especially with mood disorders, like depression and anxiety. The idea is to help a client reinterpret their thoughts so their feelings and behaviours will change. One research found that CBT achieved significant improvement in more than 75% of patients.

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is a short term evidence-based couple therapy created by Drs. Sue Johnson and Les Greenberg. The idea is that a couple often gets stuck in their dance (negative cycle) because of their strong emotions. By working through these strong emotions, the couple can change their dance and get unstuck. Research finds that 70-75% of couples move from distress to recovery and approximately 90% shows significant improvement. 


All sessions are private and confidential.


All information collected in session or through written documents are held in the strictest confidence and is not released without written authorization from you, the client.

​There are certain situations, however, where I am required by law to release information.


They are as follows:

  • If there is any indication that a child is at risk from sexual, physical, emotional abuse and/or neglect.

  • If there is danger of the client seriously hurting themselves or others.

  • In the case where a client has been abused by a healthcare professional.

  • When documents and reports are subpoenaed by the court.

Online Therapy

In a changing world to meet changing safety needs, many therapists transitioned to online therapy. Although skeptical at first, I have experienced this platform not only to bring about meaningful therapeutic relationships similar to in person, it also has increased accessibility. If you live outside of Thunder Bay, find yourself feeling more comfortable at home, and/or have intense anxiety about coming into an office space, please know this is always an alternative option available to you.
