Hi! You've taken the first step in searching for help - let me help you take the next one. I am a registered psychologist with a passion for helping people recover from their past, learn new ways of navigating their present, and discover their life's purpose. I work with a variety of life concerns - including trauma, abuse, addiction, stress/anxiety, depression, emotions management and issues of faith. I believe that every person has the capacity for love, joy and peace in their lives. And that we can all use a little help along the way.

Perceptions...This is what we live out. Our perceptions of life. How we see the world and what we expect. Sometimes life does not ask you what you want, and it can get frustrating , or downright painful trying to live with, date or communicate with someone in your life. Finding YOU is a large part of the answer. Who are you? What messages are you sending and receiving? What do you want from your life? What would it take to get that? To be able to feel good about yourself and your life again. Sometimes an outside perspective can help you to see more clearly. Reaching out for someone with an objective view can help with that.

Do you struggle with communication in your relationship? Are you tired of having the same fight over and over, without moving any closer to solving the issue? Do you wonder what life would be like if you could move past your hurts and closer to others? Are you feeling sad or overwhelmed and anxious about your life and all the pressures your facing? Pushing away your needs and not dealing with these long-term issues can have a negative impact on both your physical and mental health. I believe that it shouldn't be so hard to have a great relationship and a more satisfying life.

At times in our lives we experience challenges that feel overwhelming. No matter what is tried, nothing changes and sometimes things seem to get more cloudy, confusing and distressing. My hope is that through learning to approach challenges in a new way, and make sense of where you find yourself - you might find new ways of coping and growing. With a focus on integrative therapy engaging both the brain and the relationships we experience I employ a compassionate approach, seeking new ways of thinking, feeling, and being.

These are certainly strange times. Life already had enough challenges and strains before Covid 19 came along. Now the financial and relational pressures can seem insurmountable. There's the grief over the loss of certainty, and sense of control in our lives. And for many, this leaves us with a feeling of immobility and unpredictability. These changes can weigh heavily on us, and prevent us from being capable of our best. It's more important now than ever to take care of yourself, for the sake of your own health, and to preserve your most important relationships.

Grief is a deeply painful, lonely, and isolating experience. When someone we care about dies, our relationship ends in divorce, or we experience any of the other 40 forms of loss, we often feel unprepared and ill-equipped to deal with our emotions. The wonderful news is, grief does not have to be a life sentence of suffering. There are actionable tools that can help you to move beyond the pain caused by a loss in your life. Whether you are grieving due to a recent loss or a loss from long ago, it is never too soon or too late to heal your heart.

Christian Counsellors

Why is it important for a therapist to be culturally sensitive?

Therapists and clients don’t need to share the same belief system or background to be able to work effectively together, but a therapist whose training includes a focus on cultural competence may be better able to form a therapeutic bond with individuals from a range of backgrounds, as they will have experience in tailoring their approach to each client—and will be prepared to acknowledge and consider the effects of culture, religion, and other factors on each individual.

Why is it important to find a therapist sensitive to Christian values?

Each person brings a unique history and background to therapy, making it important to find a licensed therapist who is trained in a broad range of treatment modalities. In addition, for people who grow up in a faith tradition that strongly influences the way they conduct their everyday life, finding a therapist who understands or shares that background can ease the disclosure of sensitive information and facilitate the therapeutic process. For some clients, a Christian therapist is likely to incorporate faith-based principles into emotional healing techniques.

How do I recognise an effective Christian therapist?

Christian therapists are licensed mental health professionals—holding a master’s or doctoral degree in medicine, nursing, psychology, counseling, social work, or marriage and family therapy—who are also familiar with Christian beliefs and values. They have an understanding of the importance that Christian principles play in the lives of individuals and families, which allows them to be especially sensitive to the kinds of struggles that can affect daily functioning. Like all effective therapists, a Christian therapist will have undergone training and certification in a variety of treatment modalities that help people through crises and enable them to master the challenges of life.

Why might someone feel comfortable with a Christian therapist?

While training, qualifications, and experience are always important, research has long established that a strong alliance between client and therapist is a major contributor to therapeutic success. An alliance is likely to be strengthened with a therapist who not only is responsive to questions and concerns but also shares a client’s faith and values. Sensitivity to spiritual matters as well as to everyday struggles can provide a welcome sense of safety and contribute to the bond between client and therapist, both of which support the therapeutic process.

Who is included in Psychology Today’s directory of Christian therapists?

The directory of Christian therapists includes professionals who have shared their background in their profiles. However, not all therapists choose to disclose this information, and they may not appear in search results for this reason. The directory also shows therapists who indicate that they have extensive experience working with Christian clients, regardless of their own background or religious affiliation.
