Clients often tell me that what has helped them most when talking with me is that they felt heard and understood – not judged. I help people who long to ignite a long-lasting, caring relationship with themselves and others but often find it easier to be critical than compassionate. I support people to embrace compassion for themselves and others, so they can repair relationships and invite joy back into their lives. In our busy world, where everyone asks us to “connect” on social media, it is easy to feel disconnected – from our friends, from family, from colleagues, from our own emotions.

Your kids are freaking out after what happened, and you don’t know how to comfort them. You’re already exhausted after parenting through a pandemic for the last month and emotionally worn out. Now you’re feeling rattled because you never expected so much to strike so close to home. Your sensitive child is taking everything to heart and is very upset. It can feel overwhelming to search for words to reassure them. Nothing you try seems to comfort them for very long and you’re not sure if you’re even on the right track. If any of these challenges sound like what you're going through, please know that counselling can help.

Life can be hard. My purpose is to help you reach your goals, experience more happiness, and feel greater satisfaction with your life. For some, this may include getting to a place of peace and healing. My work over the last 15 years has included working with victims of crime, especially those who have experienced domestic and sexualized violence. I use a trauma-informed approach which means if you have experienced trauma, you can find comfort in knowing that I can recognize its symptoms and acknowledge the impact it has on your life. I will give you a space where you can share your biggest challenges or your darkest moments.

CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING CLIENTS -SLIDING SCALE- The first part of the getting-to-know-you process I will complete an initial assessment to help determine the depth of your depression, anxiety, unhealthy coping strategies and other areas that may be causing you to feel stuck. After the assessment, we can explore your problem areas through collaborative discussions. For some people, just being able to talk freely about a problem brings relief, being validated and supported helps in the letting go process. We will move into a problem-solving phase together, finding enhanced ways of thinking, behaving and managing your feelings.
