Welcome to Comfy Chair Counselling!


I still remember the day I first considered counselling or therapy as a possible career path. I was wading in knee deep water on a beach, struggling with the question of what I wanted to do with my life. I had completed one university degree and left another unfinished; explored a career that wasn’t quite right; traveled overseas; and was nursing a broken-heart. In short, I was feeling lost.


“You've always been great at listening and supporting others. Have you ever thought about being a counsellor?” my sister-in-law asked.

The proverbial light bulb went on in that moment, and the next steps became clear. My interest in self-development and relationship with others suddenly extended beyond my own personal growth, to that of supporting others to do the same. Flash forward 15+ years and here I am – working as a Registered Psychotherapist within the community of Peterborough ON and surrounding areas.


After completing an MA in Counselling Psychology, I continued to engage in various trainings for solution-focused, cognitive-behavioural, and attachment/emotion-focused therapeutic approaches. The latter in particular fed my interest in Attachment Theory and led me to Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples and individuals. This theory and approach underlies much of the work I do with clients today. From this perspective and with a trauma-informed lens, it is my hope to be able to connect with each individual or couple client I work with, and support them in their own journey of growth, healing, and building deeper connections.

If this perspective feels like a good fit for you, then I welcome you to contact me (info below) for a consultation. I look forward to working with you!

*** NEW*** Meet Our Interns! 

In partnership with Realign Wellness Centre, I am currently working with Master's Level Student Interns completing their practicum placement requirements. These students meet with clients while engaging in direct supervision with my colleague Carly and I. This is a great opportunity for clients who may benefit from a reduced fee; and who are looking for more immediate/frequent support than my current caseload and/or waitlist allows. 

You can learn more about the current Students here: Meet Our Interns.

Please know that Carly & I engage in a thorough interview process, inviting Student Interns who have interests that align with ours. We are confident in their skills and natural traits as developing therapists, and are excited to be able to offer this option to the Peterborough community.

Please feel free to ask about the Students when you reach out for a consultation.
