Relationships can bring us the greatest happiness but also the deepest pain. When we are having problems with our relationships it can stress us in many ways. Relationship stress affects our physical, emotional and mental health and can leave us experiencing depression and anxiety issues. Relationship counselling, whether you chose to come as an individual or as a couple can provide the help you need to transform you as an individual or as a couple. I have extensive clinical experience in the many life stressors that come up in our lives and can support you in navigating and developing the coping skills to move through them.

You feel stuck and alone. You beat yourself up for failing…for not being good enough…for not doing it right. You feel trapped by guilt and shame. You worry, “What if it never gets better?”. You want to be happy, not sad and stressed, but it doesn't seem possible. You feel like you’ve tried everything, but nothing seems to work. You’ve even tried talking to your family and friends, but as much as they try, they just don't get it..they don't understand. And even though, you push people away or stay silent and isolate yourself, you long for someone to notice you are hurting and to know that you matter.

Counselling is a process that can be undertaken at various stages in life and for any number of reasons, from challenges in relationships, to existential matters, anxiety, depression and trauma. Counselling may look different for every individual, but generally entails meaningful discussion, opportunities for self-exploration, the potential for profound insight, and the development of action plans to meet personal goals. My practice is built around particular core values and principles. I work with my clients by building on their strengths, resources and resiliency, as I believe these are essential for navigating life’s challenges.

Life isn’t easy, and it certainly has not been getting any easier. Sometimes we can make sense of, and cope with, what is happening to us. Other times we can benefit from seeking support. I am a firm believer that therapy can be a useful resource for anyone. I also understand that everyone's experience is unique. With that in mind, my goal is to individualized your sessions, so that you feel you’re getting exactly what you need to improve your mental health and get back to living life the way you want to.

Emotionally Focused Counsellors
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
