We humans suffer because we don’t get what we want and get what we don’t want. Most of us want to find a quick cure to our emotional pain. Quick cures sedate the pain which is the source of Wisdom, Compassion, Understanding and Real Love. My approach is for the person who wants to answer the timeless questions of: “Who am I?”, “Where did I come from?”, “Where am I going?” from their own depths and to their full understanding. It is in this journey, through self-inquiry, that they become happier, wiser and more compassionate.

I am so glad that you are contemplating the start of a 'therapeutic journey' as life can sometimes feel overwhelming and difficult to manage on your own. I know it takes ‘courage’ to reach out for support, and I understand that we sometimes need a 'place' to share our burdens. And, I recognize that it can be ‘scary’ to seek help, but my practice includes a ‘non-traditional’ holistic ‘Christian & Biblical Perspective’. That's where we can work together to reach your full potential as a child of 'God'. Contact me, as it would be my privilege to work with you, during this time in your life. So let's get started.

Life can be difficult. It can be exhausting, challenging, unfair, and full of pain and loss. Sometimes we feel anxious, depressed, confused, stressed out and we don’t know how to handle it. Maybe you feel lost, at your wits-end, stuck and unsure how to carry on. Maybe you’re looking for a way forward. Maybe you’re hoping to uncover the strengths you already have. I use a non-judgemental, collaborative, person-centered approach that puts you in the driver’s seat. I am caring and authentic, and I strive to provide a space where you feel safe and comfortable.

“I wish someone could understand what I’m going through as a mom”. “I wanted to be a mom so badly but I didn’t know how hard it was going to be. Does it ever get any easier?” Sound familiar? Motherhood can be joyous, exciting and extremely fulfilling. It can also be isolating, frustrating and highly anxiety inducing. It’s possible to feel all of these things, and a host of other emotions, at once. Feeling angry, sad, overwhelmed, guilty, or like you just want to be left alone does not make you a bad mother.

Life is challenging and there is great benefit to a supportive, non-judgmental space to explore concerns and gain self-awareness. Over the ten-plus years I've been practicing, I've helped people improve their relationships -with themselves, significant others, family, friends and careers. I work from a humanistic, client-centered, emotion-focused frame. Together, we will enlist your emotions to direct your course and help you live the life you choose. Many struggles reflect an inability to recognize strengths. I have a deep belief in people's potential and a passion for helping people use their strengths to live authentic lives.

You've been struggling for far too long. Feeling down, irritable, stressed, drained of physical and emotional energy or just plain stuck seems to be your new normal and you’re tired of it. Something isn’t right and hasn’t been right for a while and you don't want to burden your loved ones anymore with your problems – they have their own crap to deal with. Your relationships and work life are suffering and you just want everything to be OK. Dealing with tough emotions and trauma (those you may be painfully aware of and those that may be long buried) and learning to cope with self-compassion will help get your life back on track.

Between supervised training and professional work, I have almost two decades of experience working with individuals dealing with a broad range of concerns. This includes periodic difficulties such as depression, anxiety, addiction, and sleep difficulties. In addition, I have worked with people who have struggled with more persistent concerns such as maladaptive coping, relationship difficulties, and low self-esteem. Ensuring a good match between therapist and client is an important to me. I would be happy to discuss your situation to determine if there is a good fit between your concerns and the help that I can offer.

Most people yearn to be heard and taken seriously. When we are heard, we can begin to listen to ourselves in a new way. I'll invite you to speak freely and honestly about your issues - no matter how painful or challenging. This can open the door to a fuller understanding of who you are and why you do and feel the things you do. Your experiences, feelings, and dreams are some of the tools we'll use in our work together.

Do you struggle with regulating your emotions and find your moods can shift by the minute? Perhaps you experience depression, trauma and anxiety? You likely have behaviours like substance use, self harm, or disordered eating. You may be very successful in many parts of your life and in your personal life and in your relationships it might be chaotic. You likely experience fears of abandonment and although you want to bring your relationships closer you tend to act in ways that push them away. You are creative, resourceful, charismatic and really care about people. You have big emotions and are looking to decrease their intensity.
