"Change only occurs once the need to change exceeds the pain of staying the same." Working with individuals, couples, and poly groups, together we develop awareness of systemic factors influencing conscious and subconscious behaviours and decision-making patterns. Then we focus on increasing the strengths and resources available to, and within, the client. Building on the basic Buddhist tenets of mindfulness, compassion, and congruence, we can paint a different picture of both personal and relational issues, and more effective, authentic ways of growing towards your goals.
Counselling is as much about learning who we are as individuals as it is learning who we are as partners in relationship. Issues often result from not understanding what we want, then not clearly communicating our expectations to others. It's no surprise: muddy self-awareness + muddy communications = relationship chaos.
I am experienced with a broad spectrum of relationship styles and compositions, consensual power exchange structures, gender identities, and sexual orientations. I also have an extensive understanding of the stresses inherent in working in the high-tech community of Waterloo Region, and the impacts those stresses can have on personal and family life.
