Innovation of services and skills proven on the sands of Afghanistan and in the first responder communities of Canada, that's what I'm offering you. I’m a veteran of the Royal Canadian Air Force with almost 30 years of service, having retired in 2012. As a mediator and coach in the military and then in the police, I've been helping clients process difficult situations since the turn of the millenium! So what's the difference now? ​ I've deepened my understanding of how we process the emotions in our experiences and am committed to returning you to the helm as the master of your ship and the captain of your soul.

One of the consequences of stress is re-experiencing it in the mind and body, leaving us depleted and disconnected from life. Intense reactions can be confusing and distressing. Making sense of our experiences, putting them in perspective, and changing unhelpful ways of thinking, behaving, and coping increases our resilience. I welcome individuals from all walks of life and have a particular interest in survivors of sexual violence and exploitation; first responders, frontline workers, military , veterans and their families; survivors of adverse childhood experiences; workplace stress and life transitions; and older adults.

In my years of practice, my focus has been centred around individuals from different walks of life (i.e race, religion, sexual orientation). Particularly, ones who have trauma, body image issues, low self esteem, phobias and/or are anxious, depressed, stressed, destructive, angry, lonely, abused and in or have been in the child welfare system. In regards to my approach, I am genuine and compassionate, but remain equally honest and direct. Rather than bombarding clients with endless questions, I aim to engage them through meaningful methods and effective interventions.

Is the inside of your head feeling like an uncomfortable place to be? Working with a mental health professional can create a meaningful shift. Sometimes the harsh things we say to ourselves and our unconscious patterns can leave us trapped in a cycle of just trying to survive the day. Could the way you've learned to cope/survive be keeping you stuck or moving you away from who you want to be and how you want to live? Learning to see yourself, your life, and your patterns clearly can create opportunities for healing, growth, and more meaningful relationships.
