About

Do you experience unwanted feelings, emotions, sensations, attitudes, or pains without necessarily being aware of the underlying causes of them? Do you experience ongoing symptoms of anxiety or depression? Have you faced the loss of a loved one or friend or suffered from an incident (divorce, car accident, an assault, etc.,) which continues to cause you ongoing emotional or physical pain? I use a client-centred approach to guiding clients in addressing and releasing unwanted emotional or behavioural after-effects of life events such as grief/loss, injuries, illness, relationship concerns and other painful life experiences.
I have been a therapist for over 30 years in a variety of settings including children's mental health agencies, school boards, family service agencies, university/colleges, etc. I have a strong desire to support clients through life challenges and enjoy witnessing the changes they can achieve through a positive counselling experience.
I provide a safe and welcoming environment and use a variety of strategies to assist clients in relieving emotional pain and to bring clarity and comfort to troubling personal issues. This could include challenges such as unresolved trauma, job/career concerns, fear of the future, difficult relationships, anxiety, depression, body image issues, etc.
