People come to therapy for many reasons. I work well with people who are interested in taking a proactive approach to therapy; those that believe that recovery and hope are always possible by building on their strengths (which everyone has), and what is already going well in their life. In general, I believe therapy is meant to make you feel more free, and that there is always personal preference and choice in what we do together. If after our first session you decide not to work together, I will refund you. I respond to all emails within 24 hours, and typically 1-2 hours.

Whatever may have motivated you to begin your journey in seeking support, I'm so glad you have taken this courageous first step.

My approach in counselling is warm and non-judgemental. I help my clients to realize the strengths within themselves, while helping them to tap into their inner resources, build resiliency, and enhance their "tool-box" of coping skills.

Therapy is for anyone at any moment in life where you may feel you no longer like the way that you are functioning in the world. When we are thrown by circumstances, it can be challenging to recalibrate. I work with a range of individuals and concerns, specializing in self-esteem, anxiety, and life transitions. My process is a team-based one, where we work together to decide on a focus of therapy. My role is to use my knowledge and skillset to help guide you towards meaningful shifts in functioning, grounded by a space of empathy, compassion, objectivity, and non-judgement.

For anyone out there who feels like they are failing at “having it all,” I’m here to break it to you. You haven’t failed. Attaining perfection in our lives is a myth, and it’s holding so many of us back from the happiness we deserve. Especially in this modern day and age, we are flooded with highlight reels of what our lives should be. While most of us would admit that no one’s life can be picture perfect 24/7, many of us still stretch ourselves too thin to “do it all” to gain acceptance from society. The truth is this... It is almost impossible to have a picture perfect life without serious consequences to your wellbeing!

My goal is never to change who YOU are but help YOU change how you respond to your environment. I'll never ask you to do anything that I haven't tried myself or is not backed by scientific research. I believe in homework however, do not judge you if it's not done, it gives you a chance to carry your sessions with you throughout the week. My aim is to not keep you in therapy forever but help you learn to use tools that can change how you're responding to your environment.

After 20 years of working with clients, what I usually hear on the first appointment is fear and self-doubt about one's own ability to get over one's difficulties. Lots of reasons are given to about why they think they can't change including: "I've been ill too long - nobody's been able to help me; how can you possibly help"?, "I have a chronic mental illness and I have been told that nobody can recover", "I have tried to use CBT before and it didn't work - nothing worked", "I'm worse than the other clients you have seen". I will tell you that all these statements are false beliefs. Clients who have said this still changed!

I have a formidable passion for helping my clients energize a joyful, loving and creative life. Let me help reduce your suffering, and overcome obstacles to your happiness. I want to help you achieve your goals and experience more creative flow, loving-kindness and joy in your life . My other goal is to protect your confidentiality and make you feel protected and safe during sessions. - - - How do I go about achieving this? Initially I do my best to make you feel comfortable. I listen with curiosity and empathy to build a therapeutic relationship based on kindness, compassion and unconditional regard. Research amply shows that this is the most helpful element of "talk therapy" no matter what modality the therapist uses. Once in session, I find that people feel at ease with me because I am naturally engaged, authentic and direct. I practice Martin Buber’s and Humanist psychology's philosophy of being fully present in a relationship framed by mutual respect. My approach is the opposite to that of those movie therapists where the therapist is silent and writes on a pad, aloof and distant.
