When life is difficult the resulting symptoms usually include depression, anxiety, fear, anger and/or withdrawal. Rather than avoiding these states I have helped hundreds of clients turn them into resources, significantly improving their lives --usually after only a few sessions. I have 25+ years experience working with couples, individuals, families and groups, and have supervised 20+ new therapists. I specialize with couples, helping them to move beyond arguing, tension, anger, resentment and distancing into happy couples. My clients turn their problems into workable solutions.

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.

Sometimes, life can get downright challenging. We have an idea of what we want our life to look like, but problems such as anxiety, depression, or perhaps the effects of traumatic experiences get in the way of our ability to build the life we want for ourselves. It not only affects ourselves, but also our relationships with the ones we love most. It can feel very discouraging, and often, lonely. Thankfully it doesn't have to be this way for long. This is where counselling comes in, and this is where you can make the changes you have longed to see in your life in a safe and supportive space.

To conceptualize therapy, the following might be a helpful picture. Recently, we decided to hatch our own chickens. After a couple of weeks, we candled the eggs to get a glimpse inside. The glimpse was amazing and mysterious—we could see life happening beneath the shell. This is what often happens in a counselling session; we look beneath the “shell” and get a glimpse of the mystery and complexity of the human experience. From this deeper looker inside, we have many choices and changes that are possible.
