About

Are you at a crossroads in your life, and need help navigating changes in your life? Are your relationships falling apart and need help building stronger connections? Do you struggle with saying NO and having your own voice? Does anxiety keep you trapped in your situation and feel like you cannot breathe? Like many people, you might find that you overthink things or become overwhelmed with the situation or you find that your mind does not STOP! With a little work and learning some new skills, I can help you to navigate these obstacles in your life, so you can move forward.
I will help you to gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your unique triggers to empower you to bring your true most authentic SELF to your relationships. Instead of sacrificing your truth, squashing your inner voice, or succumbing to other people’s values.
I help people just like you manage your anxiety and build your confidence to follow your dreams and build healthy relationships. Tailoring evidence-based models of therapies and my down to earth personality and strong listening skills. Why not contact me today for an appointment. After Hours Appointments Available Monday and Tuesday.

Hope and Grow's Groups

Prepare/Enrich Premarital counselling

PREPARE/ENRICH is a customized couple assessment completed online that identifies a couple's strength and growth areas. It is one of the most widely used programs for premarital counselling and premarital education and is also used for marriage counselling, marriage enrichment, and dating couples considering engagement. Based on a couple's assessment results, I provide 3 or more feedback sessions in which I will help the couple discuss and understand their results as they are taught proven relationship skills.
