Counselling can help individuals, couples and families in times of challenge by offering a judgement free space to be heard, explore solutions, expand perspectives and create the space for healing to occur. Clients seek counselling when they are struggling with trauma, anxiety, depression, grief, chronic pain, relationship challenges, issues with trust and communication, infidelity and or conflict management. I believe effective therapy is relationship-driven. I invite you to start on a journey where together we face the challenges or struggles you experience.
I provide a comfortable, non-judgmental environment where we will bring mindful attention and gentle exploration to your concerns. We will examine limiting beliefs and suspicions of self that drive unwanted patterns. I practice from a client-centered approach and draw on a number of therapeutic modalities for supporting clients.
Whatever is your struggle, you don't need to go through it on your own. Sometimes we need to learn new coping skills or to have help in figuring out how what happened to us affects how we think, feel, and behave. You are here because you feel it is time, and it would be my honour to work with you.
