You aim to live in a way that doesn’t let anyone else down but are noticing that in doing so, you are letting yourself down and your own needs are not being met. You feel conflicted and anxious because “don’t good people always show up for others? Then, why do I feel hollow, lost, and unfulfilled?” You are noticing that something is off-balance in your life, and you are curious about what is it that YOU like, want, need, and desire. You wonder, “could it be possible to live a life that aligns with my true self?”

I work with post-trauma injuries that are accumulated over time. My specialty is treating post-trauma injuries (PTSD) that are accumulated over multiple incidents seen within first responder populations and health care professionals. I also work with survivors of childhood trauma. If you are experiencing flashbacks, nightmares, agoraphobia, hyper-vigilance intrusive thoughts or images I use EMDR to treat these symptoms. I help you get your life back so that you can connect confidently again with your loved one. Sometimes my clients just need a safe place to make sense of what has happened to them. If that's you I am here to listen.

No matter how the therapy unfolds, I strive to be present, caring, and real. Not a blank-faced professional jotting down notes, but a genuine human being. Each of us is an individual, and therapy requires meeting people in their difficulties, empathizing with their suffering, and forgoing all "off the shelf" techniques. In each case I work with clients to uncover their most difficult and persistent problems in order for them to be processed and worked through. In so doing, I also help clients to discover and integrate more of their largest selves and deepest callings.

I draw from a range approaches depending upon your needs and preferences. Among them are cognitive behavioral therapy, interpersonal neurobiological ideas, family systems therapy, and attachment theory. It is common for clients to arrive with issues identified only to discover that there are other deeper and more fundamental issues which underlie them. I work at a pace compatible with your ability to integrate change. I am gentle and encouraging, but firm and forthright. I provide a free initial consultation so you can determine whether you feel comfortable with me. My aim is for you to feel welcome, safe and comfortably challenged.

Codependency Counsellors
Codependency is a personality style characterized by a need to constantly help others, especially one's primary partner, and especially a person who's addicted.

If you're looking for codependency counselling in Victoria, or help for someone who's codependent, these trained codependency Victoria counsellors, or codependency Victoria therapists, will assist.
