My practice is diverse as I offer parent support counselling, individual counselling for adults/teens/children, or relationship counselling.
Accepting new clients - click the website button to the left and click 'Book Now' for either a free consult or a full session. Knowing I will listen without judgement, and offer unconditional support can help you unburden yourself of whatever you're experiencing. Whether you're feeling down, stuck, frustrated, anxious, have relationship issues, or don't understand your feelings. We will explore what it is you're going through in a safe, supportive environment so that you can gain better understanding and find possibilities to move forward. If an office doesn't suit you, inquire about going for a walk and talk, or meeting virtually.

This includes working with families and the family system to create treatment and interventions that can aid the client and their family to develop a greater understanding of the causes and effects of their dynamics. I often build my counselling relationships with all family members, either individually or in small group sessions, to create a rich picture of the family dynamic we will be working with.

Welcome! Psychotherapy is a space of inquiry to attune to what is alive in your body and to orient toward your true nature and to the life you were destined for. I offer body-centered psychotherapy and counselling for adults navigating life transitions and healing from trauma, grief, and loss with a focus on embodiment and transformation of self. When we slow down from outer world demands and turn our attention toward our inner life and body experience, we create an opportunity to expand awareness and to interrupt compulsive habits and complexes that interfere with our creative potential to live a meaningful and symbolic life.

Working with me is a process of honestly confronting our internal world in a non-judgemental way. Together we can work towards authenticity and a genuine relationship with ourselves and others. Counselling entails finding ways to manage our experiences while changing the underlying issues that perpetuate them. Sometimes, growth means overcoming obstacles through practical work, and sometimes it making sense of our challenges within the broader unfolding of our lives.
