I partner with clients whose goals range from healing body shame and disordered eating to enhancing athletic performance or adjusting to living with chronic illness. Throughout the process, we explore new ways of relating with yourself, examine any obstacles along the way, and take manageable steps towards your goals. You get to decide how healing, recovery and growth will look like for you. I am simply a guide as you implement meaningful change and discover your own advocate, carer, and champion from within.

Are you or your teen feeling alone, overwhelmed or experiencing grief? Reaching out for support is a courageous first step towards making changes or healing from a loss. I provide a compassionate and collaborative environment and specialize in the experience of grief, loss and life transitions including bereavement, end stages of life, chronic illness, dementia, caregiving, stress, anxiety, depression and emotional eating. When we are experiencing challenges, transitions or loss, we can benefit from an opportunity to explore what is impacting our emotional, physical, spiritual and psychological well-being, and to reflect on what we have lost and what remains.

Namaste! I provide individual, relationship and marriage counselling, in a nonjudgmental, relaxed environment. Over the last 35 years I have worked with individuals and couples guiding, teaching and helping them by using an eclectic approach, and a variety of different types of modalities depending on the particular needs of my clients. I also provide family mediation and relationship counselling for couples who have split. I am a sex therapist, working with all couples and individuals. I specialize in many areas, as I believe all issues are connected, so to treat problems in isolation is unrealistic and can be short lived.
