I provide individual, couple and family counselling for adults and teens in the Saint John area, using a discreet and empathetic approach. I have practiced in various fields including community health care, domestic violence and front line counselling, working with adults and teens on a range of issues including anxiety, depression, grief, addiction, trauma, family issues, violence in intimate partner relationships, career exploration and chronic health conditions. My experience in these fields has given me a strong knowledge of local community resources.
As a social worker, I have a unique understanding of the relationship between individuals and their environment and how stress can impact physical and mental health. After our sessions together, you can expect to have an improved understanding and perspective in which to view your challenges and improved coping strategies.
I practice from an evidence based, client centered approach utilizing various counselling frameworks including CBT. I take a realistic approach and offer practical and balanced strategies to help you feel better. My office is a safe space to explore your feelings without judgement and build on your existing strengths as well as achieve greater peace of mind.
