Are you overwhelmed, anxious, depressed? Are you finding your relationship is in trouble, broken hearted? Limiting core beliefs keeping you stuck? I have developed a unique & effective treatment called Anxiety Re-patterning Therapy (ART) that has changed my clients' lives. I began my formal training in 1994. My psychotherapy, energy & somatic psychology are enhanced by a lifetime of learning and growing. I love what I do. Currently working out of Nanaimo while connecting worldwide, my counselling approach uses the breadth & depth of my education, training & life experience. Let me serve as your mirror, resource & coach as you embrace sustainable choices.
I'm a Master Practitioner in Clinical Counselling - specializations - anxiety & depression, relationships, limiting beliefs). As a Certified Energy & Somatic Psychology Practitioner, Tapping is particularly effective in working with limiting beliefs from trauma & early childhood experiences - that result in negative behaviours. I include psycho-educational (brain food) materials for gaining awareness.
My education, experience and insight into bio-psycho-spiritual approaches bring breadth and depth to my counselling. Comprehensive life experience contributes to my empathy, relevance and effectiveness. My approach is integrative and sees people as complex beings. Let's employ deep listening, awareness, clarity and sustainable strategies in your healing.
