Down to earth. Grounded approach.

Usable skills to help now.


I am a seasoned counsellor with a passion for helping others, a proud mother, and an active partner on our dairy farm in Lennox and Addington County.​

My down-to-earth grounded personality, and outlook will encourage you to nurture personal growth and balance in a confidential, non-judgmental space.

​My approach is honest and sincere. I am here to support people in the rural and agricultural community who seek change and growth. I understand the unique financial, family, and environmental pressures impacting your life. We work towards finding solutions, using steps that are realistic and manageable, that best fit your lifestyle.

​Over the past 14 years I’ve provided counselling services and workshops in education, healthcare, and social services settings. I possess a BAA in Behavioural Psychology, and am an experienced counsellor registered with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). I have worked with a diverse population in the addictions and mental health sector for many years. I strive to support, guide and aid those who are struggling with personal issues. I am very aware that it can be difficult to discuss these issues but also recognize the courage you show just by reading this site

​I’m ready to help you learn, strengthen and apply usable skills and focus on rebuilding a grounded, balanced self.
