About

Do you struggle with controlling your negative thoughts or turning your brain off? Do you feel like this is affecting many aspects of your health and life? Have you finally decided that you need support, or maybe your physician, family members or friends have suggested that you would benefit from counselling? Finding someone with experience, that you feel comfortable and confident working with, can feel overwhelming. There are great therapies that can provide the skills and support to improve your mental health and help you navigate this difficult time. An experienced therapist can help you achieve this.
My experience is in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy as well as other evidence based therapies. I have worked with people of all ages and stages of life. Sessions are structured and goal oriented with a focus on your identified issue. You will leave each session with strategies to reduce symptoms and help you back to more optimal health.
I have over 25 years of experience in the field of mental health. Whether you have had counselling in the past or are reaching out for the first time, I encourage you to contact me. Your time and resources are precious so you should ensure that you are seeking experienced evidence based therapy. A good therapeutic relationship can make a great difference.
