About

Anyone including individuals, couples and families in need of counselling will benefit from coming to see me. I have had many years experience working with youth and adults. The area I particularly enjoy working with is trauma, both childhood and more recent traumatic experiences such as car accidents, abuse, or other traumatic incidents. I work collaboratively with my clients to determine what their goals are and what therapy will be the most useful. I have been trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and find this very effective in working with trauma.
If you are experiencing depression, anxiety, anger or other negative emotions I can help. My area of expertise is trauma and I have been trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). This technique is quite amazing and is now being used to treat First Responders and Vets. There is a wealth of research showing that it is very effective.
If you are suffering from negative emotions I can help. If you are in a relationship that is presently experiencing problems there are solutions. If you are in a family and having problems either as a couple or with your children there is a better way of relating that will be more peaceful and solution-focused.
