****No longer accepting Clients****Life can be overwhelming, unfair and full of the unexpected. As we seek change in our own behaviour and circumstances, we are often met with unexpected pain, anxiety, and anger that can be difficult to manage. Psychotherapy is a process in which we address obstacles in life and set goals to healing, understanding and moving forward. There is not challenge in life, big or small, that doesn't deserve the thoughtful reflection of therapy.

We all have our own histories and desires for our futures. At times these personal narratives can feel like a resource and at other times a hindrance. Sometimes we feel like we’re stuck or are moving backwards when we want to go forwards. How do we stay present in our day-to-day lives when we are visited by the voices of the past or images of the future? How do we find and listen to the voice of strength, wisdom and resiliency that lives in each one of us, when that voice seems to be silent? I don’t offer pat answers, but instead offer space and guidance to help you to deeply explore the issues and questions that want to explore.

In my work with clients, I take a client-centred approach that respects people as being the authority on their own experience and recognizes the key role that emotions play in our lives. I use an integrated approach to counseling that is informed by various therapeutic modalities as well as by my extensive clinical experience, but always with a focus on the uniqueness of each individual and customize the treatment plan according to individuality. Over the years, I have effectively helped many people adjust for better lives - helping them learn the strategies and tools necessary to resolve their difficulties and build on their strengths.

Do you want to try something different which will challenge you and direct your awareness to how you are living your life? Awareness is the first step in making any change. Awareness gives you a choice: do I keep doing what I have been doing or do I want to "try on" a new behaviour and see what changes? Together we will work through issues which are interfering with your ability to live your life fully in the here and now.

Some clients come to therapy because they need a chance to work through events that have had a negative influence on their wellbeing. Other clients may have never had a chance to know their own desire: what it is that they value and want out of life. Some clients come for support with a specific diagnosis, and others have a vague sense that something is just not right. Sometimes clients have found that they simply benefit from a place to focus on their own mental health.

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.

Issues that previous generations didn't even need to think about are now part of every day life for younger generations - cyberbullying, worries about school safety, increased rates of mental health struggles, societal conversations about gender and sexuality...
