About

I work with people whose concerns might be about anxiety, grief & loss, depression, relationship difficulties, stress, or complex post traumatic stress (CPTSD). It could be something less defined, vague yet familiar & unsettling. Perhaps you feel disconnected, isolated, or always pressured, rushed, never able to be yourself fully. Maybe something has happened at work, at school or college in your relationship/s, or with a parent or other close family members. Or you have experienced, or are experiencing, family and domestic violence.
Working through what bothers you the most, I will help you discover your way of releasing those stresses, tensions, &/or trauma. We know that as people begin to release these from mind & body, they experience shifts that can, over time, bring about relief & life-enhancing change. This can occur at any any age - as a young adult, at mid-life or at age 55+.
With my diverse cultural lived experience, I will walk gently beside you. Together we will learn, understand and address your needs with the help of trauma-informed, focusing-oriented therapy and other approaches. It takes courage to reach out & begin-or return to-counselling. Please contact me to see how I can help.
