About

Everything was okay until it wasn’t any more. You're tired of feeling so stuck, overwhelmed and ashamed all the time and you’re ready to make a change. You’ve probably tried so many times to make these changes on your own but it’s only taken you so far and it’s been nearly impossible to keep from slipping back into old behaviours. This leaves you feeling hopeless, deflated, and weak. But let me tell you something: you’re not supposed to have it all figured out on your own. Really. If you are ready to take back control of your life and you have the desire to do things different -- that’s all you need to get started.
I have extensive experience working with addictive behaviours and the various pain sources that lie beneath. I can help you identify triggers and understand your "why". We'll focus on developing strategies to relieve your suffering and explore the life experiences that have led you to find comfort in these harmful patterns.
My approach to therapy is a gentle one. My goal is to help you make the changes YOU want to make at a pace that makes sense for you. Visit my website for more information. I offer convenient online booking and flexible hours including evenings. I look forward to hearing your story and helping you move past this stuckness.
