I've been in practice since 1995. I am trained to work with individuals, couples & families as a Registered Clinical Counsellor & Marriage & Family Therapist. It's clear to me that we can all struggle, even if we are successful in other areas of our lives. Life can be unpredictable & the stress & demands of everyday life, work & relationships can take its toll. As stressors build, you may find yourself struggling with anxiety, mood, eating, body image issues or turning to addictive behaviours. You may also find that unresolved grief or past trauma keeps seeping into your daily life & especially when you least want or expect it.

I am fascinated by how stories affect every aspect of our lives. We tell ourselves stories about who we are and how we fit into the world around us. Part of my practice is helping people explore their personal narratives and how these storylines influence our sense of identity and emotional wellbeing. Problematic internal self-talk can lead to symptoms of depression, anxiety, stress, identity crises, worry, fear, and more. Applying narrative therapy and mindfulness techniques as a part of my diverse counselling style, I can help you work through and process the distressing symptoms you might be experiencing.

If you're looking for family therapy in V1Y or for a V1Y family therapist these professionals provide family therapy services and structural family therapy services. They include family therapists and marriage family therapists. Therapists in V1Y using the techniques of 'family therapy' (also referred to as marriage and family therapy and family counselling) view change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members.
