At some point in most relationships, couples experience conflict and sexual disconnection.

Are you struggling with communication issues? Conflict? Differences in desire? Illness? Trust issues? Arousal issues? Sexual trauma? I can help you gain insight into your challenges and provide tools to strengthen communication and improve sexual/ intimacy experiences.

My main therapy model is cognitive-behaviour therapy, which means I help clients to change their ways of thinking and how they engage their lives, in order to help clients to achieve their personal life goals. I also work from a motivational interviewing/counselling framework for people who are seeking to make important life decisions or who need help with making change or improving their health behaviours. I work with patients with problems with anxiety, depression, relationships, problems making life decisions, sexual functioning problems, and coping with chronic diseases like heart disease, cancer, diabetes, HIV, and pain.

It is easy to get overwhelmed and thrown out of balance in our current world. As we attempt to cope, we may often fall back on maladaptive coping mechanisms that result in temporary relief. However, maladaptive behaviours can have serious consequences. For instance, if you are unable to overcome your frustration using a healthy adaptation, you may resort to overeating and overdrinking. My goal is to help you bring balance back to your life and teach you how to recover from any emotional dysregulation and give you the tools for improved resiliency.

Registered Psychotherapist, RP

My approach to therapy is empowering, compassionate, and focuses on assisting clients to gain insight in order to enhance their understanding of themselves and their situations. Together we explore possible ways to manage and relieve distress and suffering, and achieve lasting and meaningful change. Within the context of unconditional acceptance and non-judgement, this means clients can develop more adaptive ways of coping, relating to others, develop deeper connections, and be responsible and in control of themselves and their emotions.

Welcome. Working with a therapist provides the opportunity to explore the things that truly matter to you. Through uncovering the stumbling blocks and triggers that prevent you from being the best version of yourself, we will collaborate together to create self-awareness, self-compassion, and self-acceptance - while determining new avenues to accomplish tangible goals that align with your values. Giving consideration to the 'whole' you is an integral part of the therapeutic process – including those aspects that are painful and deeply imbedded, as well as your strengths, resources and aspirations.

Has "getting by" become a way of life? Are you feeling chained to the past or "locked into" self-protective defenses? And perhaps, something feels missing; something you've never quite put into words! Time can’t heal all wounds. Time alone does not erase the imprint of memories nor mend the hurt or emptiness inside. So what if you could take back control of your life? How far would you thrive if you were the architect of your life, unchained from pain stories?

I WORK WITH PEOPLE WHO WANT TO BE THE BEST THEY CAN BE. Life can often get in our way, and things can catch up with us and we suddenly realize this is not the life we want for ourselves. Painful, emotional feelings from our past can affect our self-esteem, all our relationships, esp intimate ones, and conflict occurs. Relationships are at our core, and understanding ourselves oft through the lens of difficult relationships help us learn how to be more compassionate, nurture self-love, be better communicators, and to create more trust and belief in oneself. I am often referred to as the "Happiness Locator" & Self Esteem Coach.

Relationship/ Personal Development/ Life Coach. Our relationships help to define who we are as individuals. They are necessary. They can be wonderful. And they can be all-consuming and debilitating. Whether romantic relationships, friendships, family, or even those with work colleagues, these human interactions require exceptional communication and a great deal of work. Harmonious relationships are often unattainable alone and thus can become the cause of great stress, procrastination, and self-doubt​; but with proper guidance, relationships can offer the opportunity for connection, growth and meaningful collaboration.
