Our mind can be our greatest resource and at times our worst enemy. Managing the unhealthy chatter of our mind can prove to be our greatest challenge. Unhelpful responses to our thoughts, feelings and life situations can cause anxiety and depression problems as well the reliance on unhealthy habits in an attempt to cope. My approach focuses on learning to effectively managing our thoughts, feelings and relationships and on living life in a manner consistent with your values. I welcome the opportunity to work with individuals to overcome difficulties, to achieve goals and to create a more meaningful and fulfilling life.

I provide support and counselling depending on the issues that you feel that you need help to "sort out". I am very flexible and there are many ways that we can look at a problem and find various solutions that will " fit" for you. You are the architect of this discussion and if something does not "fit", we can go back to the drawing board and try other ways of confronting the issues.

As Carl Rogers quoted “People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” I believe we sometimes need a safe and trusting space to understand our inner struggles and recognize ways to cope.

I have over 30 years of clinical experience working with substance use, mental health issues and other difficulties. When someone reaches out for support, they demonstrate great determination, hopefulness and personal courage to share in their private concerns. Making changes can involve focusing on personal values; learning and practicing new coping strategies and drawing on personal strengths.

L1N Motivational Interviewing is frequently used in cases of problem drinking or mild addictions. Check these therapists for Motivational Interviewing in L1N.
