About

Do you worry about mental health and wellbeing, interpersonal relationships, or family issues? Perhaps workplace or school challenges are affecting your personal wellbeing. Are you dealing with grief and loss? Maybe you or your family member is coping with illness, chronic health issues and disability, or caregiver stress that has become overwhelming. I am a social worker with knowledge of health care and family and life transitions issues, who works with individuals of all ages.
I offer a safe, secure and non-judgmental environment for you to discuss, explore, and gain insight into your personal situation and the challenges you may be facing in life, with a focus on developing solutions that make a difference to you. Life has many bumps along the way and it takes personal strength to reach out for support and counselling.
I believe in each person’s intrinsic strength and ability to navigate through challenging events and uncertainties and help bring change to your personal situation. Reaching out for help is an essential first step in taking care of you.
