About

I believe that each of us has within ourselves the ability to make positive changes and one of the most fulfilling parts of my career, from nursing to counselling, has been to see people realize their own ability to grow from adversity. I offer a safe and genuine space that we can use together to work through struggles. Coming from a background in psychiatric nursing, I have learned that a genuine and trusting relationship is key to someone feeling heard and understood, and that a solid relationship is the foundation for growth and change.
I generally use Cognitive Behavioral and Acceptances Commitment therapies as a way to provide person-centered, insight driven changes that improve my clients outlook, build more constructive coping skills. For Some clients, making peace with negative emotions and learning to focus on mindfulness and acceptance works better for them and we do that together.
I offer a safe, inclusive space and a genuine presence for my clients. I believe in an approach that is person-centered and your unique combination of experiences, perspectives, thoughts and feelings make you the expert in your life and your needs and goals, not me. I celebrate the diversity of people and look forward to learning more about my clients.
