Are you feeling overwhelmed with the struggles in your life. Are you finding it hard to cope? Are you constantly thinking about your relationships, your finances, your children? Are you dealing with trauma? Are you wondering if you can ever be the person you once were or know you can be. Counselling can help you deal with your feelings, thoughts and behaviors .

My training is in psychology, trauma, addictions and related issues. Over the past 20 years I have worked with a wide spectrum of people. Working with survivors of trauma has been a major focus in my career.

We can begin to "unpack" problems together in a supportive, understanding environment. I have special certification in Focusing-Oriented Therapy and Complex Trauma a body centered and person centered approach. It can be hard taking those first steps as you seek out counselling, I can be there for you.
