I believe we have the capacity to work towards emotional recovery and healing when we feel heard, validated, and encouraged. I work well with people who require a gentle and supportive counsellor.

I have supported and successfully helped people deal with issues in addictions, anxiety, depression, relationship problems, anger, grief, self-esteem, and more. Often people go to therapy for one issue and others quickly surface. I keep myself informed about these issues through supervision by a registered psychologist, workshops, seminars, readings, etc.

I see clients as people living in an environment. This means I look at what has happened and/or is happening in your life that contributes to and maintains the problem you struggle with. My ability to build relationships quickly and help others feel emotionally safe and not judged is one of my greatest strengths.
