Do you find yourself trapped in the same argument you've had countless times before? Does it feel like you and a loved one speak different languages? Have you lost the "spark" in your romantic relationship? Are you struggling with family dynamics, past hurt, or breaking a destructive cycle? The good news is that you are not alone - especially during these challenging times. Every healthy and honest relationship encounters conflict. The challenging part is how we navigate it. Our approaches can make-or-break our relationships and sometimes ourselves, in the process.

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.

When life is difficult the resulting symptoms usually include depression, anxiety, fear, anger and/or withdrawal. Rather than avoiding these states I have helped hundreds of clients turn them into resources, significantly improving their lives --usually after only a few sessions. I have 25+ years experience working with couples, individuals, families and groups, and have supervised 20+ new therapists. I specialize with couples, helping them to move beyond arguing, tension, anger, resentment and distancing into happy couples. My clients turn their problems into workable solutions.

The process of choosing a counsellor begins long-before you arrive at the first session. Often there is a feeling within ourselves that something is just not right. It may be a time marked by a great deal of personal introspection or it could be an intervention from an external source -school, family, friends, your doctor - that motivates contact with a therapist. As a person-centred therapist, I will work with you to establish a meaningful relationship where you feel safe to explore and resolve issues that fit your unique needs at this moment in time.

Human beings are complicated- and so often we attempt to reach out to others using words to express our thoughts, our emotions, and our behaviours. With children/youth, we see additional communication barriers because of fewer words and limited life experiences. Being part of a family system should bring safety and emotional support to each family member, but sometimes the family, on its own, cannot do this. This is my work- we become partners in the process of change- discovering strengths, and building on them.

Let’s work together to explore the challenges creating uneasiness, confusion and pain in your life. We will work in a comfortable, accepting space to create a meaningful, grounding experience to help you gain new awareness, explore choices and promote positive and rewarding change and self-care. Traditional talk therapies are not the only way to explore your story, and I often use sand play, art, storytelling, journaling, metaphor and imagery to reach a deeper understanding.

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.
