About

We are living through a strange and difficult time. Although it might not always feel that way, the good news is that you don't have to go it alone. If you are feeling unfocused, on an emotional roller coaster, unmotivated, and disconnected for yourself and others, I can help. Using engaging, effective, and holistic techniques, we will work together to help you find more resilience, emotional stability, focus, and meaning in your life. My trauma-informed counselling and coaching helps you get off the roller coaster, find out who you really are, what you actually want from life, and where you want to go next.
I provide a variety of counselling environments and styles to help address your present needs. The techniques I use include Somatic Experiencing ® trauma therapy, Internal Family Systems, coaching, and outdoor counselling. I work with teens and adults experiencing ADHD, issues with motivation and meaning, addictions, and trauma.
The first step towards making change is often the hardest. If you feel even a little ready to start working towards a better life, don't hesitate to reach out today and schedule a risk-free 30-minute phone consultation. I have packages to support you even outside the counselling office. Let's see how I can help. Let's see how we can do it together.
