"I specialize in the areas of anxiety, depression, and addiction. In my experience, anxiety and depression often show up together. When they take hold, we frequently fall into traps of addiction in efforts to numb the emotional pain. Addictions can be an effective short-term strategy, but they are not a solution that brings healing. Instead, they increase the pre-existing symptoms, usually adding a whole new set of problems as well. Whether it is a gambling addiction, an online gaming addiction, a shopping addiction, pornography addiction, a substance use addiction (etc), my training and skills are focussed on your healing, growth, and freedom."

"I hold space for your process, providing a safe container where we can cultivate curiosity and non-judgment. As an integral therapist, I tap into our implicit body-mind knowing and what is present in the body to deepen our awareness and consciousness. I have seen great benefits accessing whole-brain approaches in clinical practice that use empathy, emotion, attachment theory and relational aspects in psychotherapy. I enjoy working with individual adults and with couples (including same sex), and have experience working with clients who are dealing with self esteem issues, depression, life transition, addictions, trauma, and cross-cultural challenges."

"My interest in psychotherapy stems from a deep and abiding desire to know myself through introspection and honest inquiry and to assist others in actualizing the ability to live the most authentic life possible free of fear, anxiety depression and addictions. My qualifications as a counsellor come from years of education and hands on experience in the field and from from personal experience from the other side of the therapeutic equation; my own descent into shadow material through trauma, depression and spiritual emergency. I am an advocate of alternative therapies incorporating art, music, shamanic and spiritual practices."

"Human beings are complicated- and so often we attempt to reach out to others using words to express our thoughts, our emotions, and our behaviours. With children/youth, we see additional communication barriers because of fewer words and limited life experiences. Being part of a family system should bring safety and emotional support to each family member, but sometimes the family, on its own, cannot do this. This is my work- we become partners in the process of change- discovering strengths, and building on them."

"If you are feeling so much emotional pain, but no one else has a clue, you probably feel really isolated and alone. Maybe you feel like your whole life has fallen apart. Perhaps you struggle with unrealistic fears and anxiety. Perhaps you have really low mood and have been diagnosed with depression. Maybe you suffered childhood trauma or emotional neglect. If you feel stuck in a rut, and find yourself repeating the same old unhealthy patterns, I can help you to make positive change, rapidly alter negative, limiting beliefs, and move forward into a more fulfilling, joyful, and satisfying experience of life."
