My approach incorporates using knowledge of human design and development to provide a supportive framework from which to normalize and understand concerning emotional experience. I generally employ Schema Therapy to aid clients to identify self-limiting core beliefs and their origins. Somatic (body) awareness may be offered to enhance client awareness. This is an optional, skill-based, self-delivered aspect of treatment. Clients desiring to understand troubling emotional responses to situations, including relationships, stress, depression and anxiety, have consistently benefitted from the above approach.

I bring decades of experience helping emergency services and health care professionals find solutions to the cumulative stress they experience every day in their jobs. Without a safe place to work through these normal reactions to abnormal events, careers can be cut short and the families of these professionals struggle as well. Together we can find solutions for work related stress and other issues such as: the impact on the families, grief and loss, addiction/recovery and enhance existing coping skills. I enjoy working with a wide range of age groups from young adult to adult.

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.

Are you or a loved one struggling with alcohol or drug related problems? Addiction disorders isolate individuals from family, loved ones, community, and ultimately themselves. Many individuals may be fearful or have uncertainty reaching out for help. Be assured, I bring a relaxed non-judgemental approach to the therapeutic relationship and specialize in working with adults experiencing difficulty with addiction and related co-occurring disorders. I have worked in the addiction and mental health field since 2008 and have held clinical and management positions in inpatient, outpatient, and continuing care settings.

Ever feel like saying F#CK My Life? Whether you are stressed out, burnt out or someone feeling increasingly overwhelmed, I am here to support you. I specialize in anger, jealousy, burnout, stress and addiction. I also work with people who have spiritual and psychedelic non-ordinary states of consciousness that want integration therapy and support. My counselling style is pragmatic and heartfelt. I have weathered my fair share of storms. “Why” is this happening to me is an important question to ask. The answer often lies in our own behaviour, habit energy and shadow. Working at this level leads to lasting change, beyond talk therapy.

My work is primarily with those who have experienced trauma - the experience of being emotionally and psychologically overwhelmed by adverse childhood experiences and adult traumatic events. My focus is always on the present - how can those debilitated by anxiety, shame, and poor self-worth become healthy enough to meet their own needs for income, housing, positive and affirming relationships, and physical and mental wellness.

My view on counselling is based upon the level of trust and the quality of the connection that we are able to create together. In essence, the relationship that we develop together is key. I would wish to provide you with a safe, caring environment where you could come to feel completely heard and understood. I see my role as being more of a Guide, offering support while at the same time gently encouraging your growth by pointing out certain areas, thoughts, beliefs or behaviours that may be keeping you stuck, or that you may be unaware of.
