I have experience in mental health and addiction , especially behavoural addictions including excessive technology use, gambling, shopping, food and hypersexuality.
As a therapist, I have the privilege of meeting people at a critical point in their lives when they are looking to understand themselves better, make changes and deal with painful feelings. I think it is so important for people to have someone non-judgmental to talk to about what is going on in their lives. I look forward to the possibility of meeting and helping you with a challenging period of your life with some humour, humility and almost 20 years of experience as a social worker.

I have over 12 years of experience in the field of addiction , trauma, and mental health.
“Accepting new clients” Unresolved trauma, attachment injury, and old emotional wounds from the past create a fractured foundation. They affect our sense of self, make us feel empty inside, and lead us to believe that there is something terribly wrong with us. However, some symptoms that we experience as adults, such as excessive self-blame, addictive behaviours, anxiety, depression, a constant need to please others, sensitivity to rejection, and being easily overwhelmed, are caused by what failed to happen for us in childhood. Let me help you explore the part of you that was hurt and still carries the trauma and suffering.

I have experience in addiction , ADHD, childhood developmental issues, eating disorders, grieve, immigration, trauma and PTSD.
Years ago whilst dealing with some health issues that affected me both mentally and physically a mentor/counsellor told me to “change my thoughts, in order to change my world. Because my present circumstances at the time did not determine were I go, but where I started." Hence, I do understand how mental and physical struggles can impact one's life and that admitting to those struggles and asking for help is never easy. I am here to walk alongside you on the journey to healing and restoration.

Do you struggle with regulating your emotions and find your moods can shift by the minute? Perhaps you experience depression, trauma and anxiety? You likely have behaviours like substance use, self harm, or disordered eating. You may be very successful in many parts of your life and in your personal life and in your relationships it might be chaotic. You likely experience fears of abandonment and although you want to bring your relationships closer you tend to act in ways that push them away. You are creative, resourceful, charismatic and really care about people. You have big emotions and are looking to decrease their intensity.

You are reading this because you are seeking a change in your life. Perhaps you feel stuck or you are sliding back into habits that are causing you pain and suffering. Anger, feelings of insecurity and conflict with loved ones are things that you are experiencing much more than you want to. You may have turned to substance use to help numb or suppress the pain that you feel. It is not easy to admit that you may need help and it takes courage to seek support. I believe that the path to healing begins in the presence of someone who cares and tries their best to understand your journey. I can offer you that support.

I have worked as a counsellor since 1997 and currently work with adolescents, youth and adults who are struggling with addiction and mental health issues.
My practice is entitled 'Awareness: The First Step to Healthy Living' because I believe that if you are not aware of your strengths and potential and the nature of your relationships, it is not possible for you to move ahead in life. I treat serious mental health issues, addiction issues, eating disorders, mild autism, individual, couples and family issues (relational work), grief and loss, crisis intervention work, and, generally explore and build on positive self development.
