Is there a tug inside you, aching for your life to be different or better? Conflict between your inner voice, that whispers its wisdom, and influential norms that impress you with what you “should” do? You may be questioning your sense of belonging in this world. Worries of whether you’re good/smart/capable enough. Existential concerns of whether you are doing yourself, or your spirit, justice. You may wish to free yourself from patterns learned in childhood, or the professional culture you now find yourself a part of. At heart, you wish to experience a peaceful sense of self, joyful relationships, and meaningful work.
I help people rise from depression or grief, loosen the grip of anxiety, and cope with the arduousness of uncertainty. With warmth, authenticity, and humour, I reconnect clients with possibility. I assist you to trust yourself and your decisions. You have the right to lead a life unencumbered by past negative experiences. You have permission to thrive!
I welcome working with people of various genders and cultural/religious backgrounds. I am an ally to LGBQT2S. I happily receive appointment inquiries by email or text. Sorry I don’t offer free consultations ahead of a session but you are welcome to email me a summary of your counselling goals or ask me further questions about my approach.
