I have been working in Social services for over 30 years; over 20 in private practice. I enjoy using the eclectic combinations of modalities that I have learned. In general I find that as humans, our minds cause us a great deal of suffering. Learning to understand our minds so that we can change the negative scripts that keep us stuck in the same patterns is the greatest gift I have to offer. It is only then that we can experience our full potential of happiness and fulfillment in life. I use a client-centred approach. My practice welcomes the diversity of all humans.

We are not broken, just stuck. Sometimes the way we cope with emotional wounds, anxieties, and fears may in fact be detrimental to us, leaving us trapped by the same patterns in life. I depart from an attachment and trauma-informed, strength-based perspective and place an emphasis on emotional regulation, experiential integration, and behavioural change.

By giving ourselves the same kindness we give others and in listening to our embodied wisdom we discover fresh new possibilities.Therapy helps to manage anxiety, deal with emotions such as regret and shame, and dispel fear and worry. Without the veil of negativity and self-doubt we can make choices that lead to a more empowered future.
