I also hold further advanced training and experience in the areas of Complex Divorce and Co-Parenting, Crisis Response, Trauma, Substance Abuse, and Emotionally Focussed Couples Counselling.
I specialize in the areas of anxiety, depression, and addiction. In my experience, anxiety and depression often show up together. When they take hold, we frequently fall into traps of addiction in efforts to numb the emotional pain. Addictions can be an effective short-term strategy, but they are not a solution that brings healing. Instead, they increase the pre-existing symptoms, usually adding a whole new set of problems as well. Whether it is a gambling addiction, an online gaming addiction, a shopping addiction, pornography addiction, a substance use addiction (etc), my training and skills are focussed on your healing, growth, and freedom.

My ideal client has often dug themselves into a hole into which they can not get out of on their own. The issues will be related to a difficult relationship of some description, partner, family, community, finance, environment, financial, and certainly themselves. It is likely that their goals are uncertain and that they feel lost. Very often, my ideal client does not know what they want, but can with certainty say what they don't want.

I also coach couples to listen deeply and to heal from grievances and affairs.
You may be bumping into challenges, hurdles, and fears, and noticing unhealthy repetitive patterns which are in the way of the life you truly want. I can support you to gently explore all those parts of you with curiosity and non judgement. My work is not informed by a diagnostic lens with labels; rather, it references the client as a "whole" being on their own unique human journey. I look forward to accompanying you on your healing journey, to tap into your implicit body-mind knowing and what is present in your body to deepen your awareness and consciousness.

I also work with individuals and couples who are having issues in their relationships; individuals who have experienced trauma; women who are experiencing postpartum depression; and people struggling with acute or chronic illness.
Like many people, I grew up in an environment where we didn't talk about our struggles and emotions. From an early age, I learned to keep the difficult things inside and deal with my emotions on my own. In 1999, I became a crisis phone counsellor and realized that I wasn't the only one who had had this kind of experience. I realized that a lot of people felt the way I did and kept their emotions inside. For the first time, I learned how healing it could be to share struggles with supportive people.

The focus of my counselling work is very respectful as I acknowledge that you know yourself best. Most people seek out counselling because they are stuck in old patterns that they have outgrown yet need help to move forward in a new, more helpful way. I appreciate the courage it takes to reach out and I will work hard to help you make the changes you need.

My deepest passion resides in working with youth although I also love working with adults/families/couples.
* Currently only offering video sessions. Evening and weekend availability (as well as weekday)*. Throughout life we develop patterns of meeting our needs, responding to our emotions and responding to others. Expectations that others have for us may become expectations we have for ourselves and lead to living an unfulfilled life. Over time we can find ourselves stuck in these cycles that are no longer serving us and are getting in the way of living an authentic and meaningful life. This is when we may potentially experience stress, anxiety, depression, overwhelm and difficulty in relationships.
