Do you feel stuck, lost or anxious in your career? Want to weigh your options or get ahead/change jobs? Despite societal pressure to know exactly what you "should" do, many adults still struggle with this big life question. I want to help you better understand where you've come from and how you hope to experience your future. Do you want to feel valued, supported, and part of a team? Would you rather be independent and free with a job full of adventure? I'll help you feel clear about your purpose, what you want & ultimately be guided by your values, interests, natural abilities and life experience.
I hold a Master’s in Counselling Psychology and have 7 yrs. experience guiding individuals with anxiety from all walks of life, through the practical and emotional parts of decision-making. As a therapist & Career Counsellor, my first-hand experience with major life transition complements my formal training in career psychology & nature therapy.
With a step-by-step process, I'll help you reduce stress and gain clarity. I want to hear your story and explore possibilities with evidence-based tools. Whether it's virtual or partnering with nature outdoors, we'll consider assessment results, reality factors & the whole you to find the life you want and jump into inspired action.

I often use Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, IFS & Nature-Informed Therapy in my practice. In your first session, we'll explore what brought you to therapy and then decide the most appropriate ways to help you make progress. We'll look at how your thoughts affect your emotions and experience. With the backdrop of nature, I'll help you learn relate to those thoughts differently and reduce stress.
