About

If you feel unhappy with where you’re at in your life and don’t want to burden others with your problems, therapy can help. Feeling that you are not alone and that someone understands you is critical to starting to feel better. Even though it may not feel like it right now, you can become stronger and feel better.
Whether you're worried about you marriage or family falling apart, concerned for your son's or daughter's well-being, depressed, anxious, or overwhelmed, counselling can help. When you’re ready to talk – I’m ready to listen, in an open, non-judgemental way.
For counselling to be effective, it is essential for you to feel listened to and understood by the person you are working with. Throughout counselling, I will routinely check-in with you to enusre that your needs are being are being adequately addressed within the therapeutic relationship. Your feedback is essential to making therapy a success!
