Are you struggling with anxiety, shame, anger, depression or addiction? Do you lack purpose, meaning or direction? Do you wonder why you can’t find the ‘right’ partner, or why relationships always seem to end up with the same issues? Do you lack joy, and feel like you’ve been going around in circles forever? Do you want to understand why you feel this way, and to find a way to move on? Perhaps you are tired of being unhappy, alone, disliking yourself, feeling like a failure, and want some answers, some hope, some sense of direction?

Sometimes we all feel stuck. Our go-to methods of coping aren't working anymore, or we aren't getting what we need from those we usually turn to. Sometimes those we turn to are also struggling with their own issues and we need a neutral person to talk with. I enjoy working with individuals, including youth, and families who feel this way and are curious to explore if counselling may be helpful for them. I also love working with parents and supporting them to have more open communication and playfulness in their relationships with their children of all ages.

Through therapy, you can save your relationships. In therapy I connect with: the potential you have to develop a nurturing, loving and caring relationship and the tender hearts behind the rigid and negative patterns that may have developed in your relationships. I believe: Relationships and desire to connect are the core of human experience. Your relationship, regardless of how severe your problems are, has the potential to become a safe and supportive base and comforting haven.

"We are all wired for connection. It’s in our biology. As infants, our need for connection is about survival. As we grow older, connection means thriving – emotionally, physically, spiritually, and intellectually. Connection is critical because we all have the basic need to feel accepted and to believe that we belong and are valued for who we are” - Brene Brown At the core of my practice, I believe that a meaningful therapeutic connection can spark change. Talk therapy is a powerful tool to build and enhance acceptance, connection, and healing.

Struggling with life? Talk therapy really helps! I listen. Often, in spite of our best intentions, our emotional reactions and behaviours can be self-defeating and hurtful. Through caring relationship, non-judgmental questions, affirmations, and client expression of feelings, the client feels relief, is encouraged, and becomes aware of the things one cannot change, motivated to change the things one can, and to know the difference. It is my job as therapist to be fully present to the client. I support the client to gain insight about his/her own self and through awareness, live more whole and fulfilling lives.

The deepest desire of a human is to belong…to be heard…and to be accepted… Sometimes life presents us with difficulties that are tough to manage or resolve on our own. There are times when we need to ask for help in order to find ourselves and to move forward. As a person and a counsellor, I know that life’s challenges can happen at all stages of our lives at multiple levels and that every situation is unique to us alone.

In over thirty years working as a psychologist, I have become convinced that the most effective way to help others is through a collaborative approach. When the client and therapist work together to find solutions, the emphasis is placed on the client’s individual perspective and the strengths and successes they have already achieved. At the core of therapy, I believe, is a non-judgemental and compassionate view of how everyone’s personal journey involves overcoming suffering and moving towards self-acceptance, empowerment and emotional well- being.
