I believe that each person has their own set of strengths and should be treated as a whole person - not a problem to solve. I see therapy as a collaboration where you and I can work towards the version of yourself you want to be. Sometimes this process can feel overwhelming and daunting so I strive to offer a welcoming and non-judgemental environment where you can explore your thoughts, emotions, and values - and grow as a person. I have more than five years experience supporting people with substance use and mental health concerns. Sometimes we can feel trapped by our past, but there is always a way to move forward.

I am a Registered Clinical Psychological Associate who has been providing psychological services to adults with a range of difficulties and diagnoses including PTSD, anxiety and mood disorders, addiction , self-esteem issues, and stress related difficulties for more than 25 years.
Life isn't always easy. It is full of stressors big and small. Some are predictable. Others are totally unexpected. And some are cumulative in that we don't even know that we are being impacted until that day that we hit the wall and find that we just aren't functioning the way we want. We try everything we know to get through tough times, to change how we are feeling, acting, and thinking, but sometimes we need a little extra help.

I have worked in the areas of mental health, addiction and family services for over ten years.
I believe you are the expert in your life and even though you may not know it, you have all the answers within you. Unfortunately sometimes life can make accessing these answers difficult. Trauma, mental health issues, addiction , work and family pressures can all impact our ability to connect to our inner wisdom and happiness. I have found through personal experience that talking to a trained professional in psychotherapy who is kind, caring, non judgmental and emotionally attuned can support the process of being able to listen to ourselves and work towards living a life that is free of suffering.

Helping people who are struggling with anxiety, relationship issues, addiction , depression, low motivation, post partum concerns, trauma, men's issues or sexual health are part of what we specialise in at Spacious Mind Counselling.
We know that life can be very challenging at times and that the obstacles can seem overwhelming when facing them on your own. The therapists at Spacious Mind Counselling have been through their own trials and tribulations and have benefited from their own personal therapy during difficult times. We know that you are the expert in your life and that with the right conditions you can overcome the obstacles and challenges. We aim to provide a safe, non judgemental space where you can begin to understand the challenges for what they are and get back to living a rich and meaning full life. We do this by listening, asking questions and then creating goals with you that are in line with your values. Sometimes skills and tools are needed and other times processing traumas and unresolved emotions are needed. We will always follow your lead and provide insight and knowledge when you need it during sessions.

In our office we have a sign and it says "When you come through this door, Believe in Change" My experience in change comes from 26+ years of helping people like yourself deal with couple, relational, career and addiction issues.
Have you ever been in that place where things pile up for you? When it gets hard to get motivated, things seem like they will never get better. Do you get that inward sense that your partner, family or friends don't get you? If so, you now have the opportunity to rise up and change whatever isn't working in your life, if it wasn't so you won't be reading this right now. You know that you need to act now for a brighter tomorrow. You want change that will offer you hope that things can be different. It doesn't matter what the situation is, now is the time to come and experience hope in your life.

What if you could live a life without such intense emotional pain? To the outside world, you seem to be functioning well. Maybe you put on a smile and go through the motions to get through everyday life, but your inner world tells a different story. Each day may feel like a struggle because low mood or memories from the past seem to be a dark cloud that follows you everywhere you go. With specialties in trauma and PTSD, depression, and addiction , I understand that behaviours are often a way of coping with intense pain. My goal is to help you feel like you can cope with life again.

We support adults, children and families struggling with mental health, addiction , grief, and relationship problems.
There is nothing as fulfilling and rewarding as being the best version of yourself. However, it’s a process. Along the journey of life, you may feel overwhelmed, frustrated or even stuck. Sometimes, in a bid to unstuck or fill the void, we latch on to something else that creates more problems. It could also be inability to let go of the past pain. At the Vine, we will be your ally on this journey by supporting, enriching and empowering you. We do this by unveiling different characters, situations and circumstances on your journey. We bring your awareness to your responses and encourage you to embrace seasons of life with compassion

I have worked with individuals managing various challenges such as, but not limited to: substance use and addiction , homelessness and poverty, intimate partner violence, .
I became a social worker because "your life is worth my time.” This is something I live by as I value each and every client I have had the opportunity to work with. I always feel blessed to join clients on their journey towards healing and wellness, and it takes immense bravery to take that first step and reach out for help. I work hard to create an environment that fosters safety and growth, and approach my practice from a strengths-based, anti-racist, collaborative lens. I have also begun the process of becoming trained in Brainspotting and have completed Phases 1 and 2.
