I work with individuals, couples and families.
My Passion is to deliver a message of HOPE to people that I come across. I personally believe that Hope can light a candle in the darkest point of life. Hope is what we all need in order to have a more positive look at life in general and be empowered to make constructive changes and live with a positive attitude. With the increasing challenges in our world and the fact that we are not immune to life's surprises and shocks, our days are becoming more stressful which make us sometimes pay heavy price....

Are you feeling disconnected from your partner ? Feeling they do not understand you? Not enjoying your time together? You were likely close to your partner during the early years of your relationship , but as stressors of family, finances or work have come up, your connection has changed. You have tried to resolve matters, but feeling stuck. Just like when you take your car to a mechanic for repairs, couples therapy can be helpful in repairing your relationship . It can be difficult to ask for help, but when your relationship is not working, it can impact many aspects of your life.

I strive to create a compassionate environment for individuals & couples to reach their full potential & live out a fulfilling life.
No concern or thought is too small or large to be explored in therapy. I understand that life can bring us suffering, pain, loss, and other experiences that we oftentimes struggle to manage. My goal is to provide a safe space to explore & process your thoughts, emotions, & life situations, no matter how big or small. I understand that each individual's story is unique, & I allow for discovery to occur in a fully confidential, non-judgemental space.

I have over 30 years of clinical experience working with individuals, couples and families.
Therapy can help in many ways – providing emotional support, understanding in new ways and changing unhelpful patterns and behaviours. I work to transform difficult emotions and help clients to feel relieved, hopeful, and clearer about the way forward. I draw from a number of therapeutic approaches including the person-centered humanistic approach, family systems, anti-oppressive and trauma-informed practices, narrative and solution-focused therapies, CBT, the Gottman method, and mindfulness and compassion-centered approaches.

Building a therapeutic relationship with you is one of the most important parts of this journey.
Life comes with its ups and downs, and at times it can be difficult to process and cope with our thoughts and emotions during these hardships. Together, we can work through these challenges and find strategies to help you address the root causes of these difficulties while finding ways to cope and move forward. I feel that while embarking on this journey it is important to build a positive and healthy relationship with oneself. Through increasing self-awareness and self-compassion, you can truly love yourself fully and improve your mood and mindset. "When things change inside you, things change around you."

Couples Counselling

Does couples counseling work?

Research shows that couples counseling is effective; it can reduce relationship distress and improve emotional awareness, communication, empathy, intimacy, and overall relationship satisfaction. For example, emotionally focused therapy was found to be effective for about 75 percent of couples, and those benefits lasted at least two years.

When should a couple seek counseling?

Couples can benefit from counseling if they consistently struggle in their relationship. They may have lost the ability to communicate effectively, become entrenched in harmful patterns, begun to fight more than usual, broken the other’s trust, suffered from a mental or physical illness, or faced any number of other challenges. Many therapists offer free consultations, so if a couple isn’t sure whether therapy is necessary, asking directly can provide clarity.

How can I get my partner to go to couples therapy?

The decision to seek couples therapy is often driven by one partner, who then convinces the other to participate. When discussing the idea, the initiator should be direct and assertive. They can state the problems they see and explain how the relationship would benefit from therapy. In more serious cases, they can also explain how their relationship may suffer without making any changes or seeking professional help.

How does a couple prepare for couples counseling?

The anticipation of beginning couples counseling can be difficult—sometimes more difficult than the first session itself. Taking a few moments to reflect can allay those concerns: What are the current challenges? When and how did they begin? What do they want the relationship to look like in the future? Reflecting on these questions can help individuals or couples articulate their goals. Of course, the therapist will also ask questions and guide couples through the process.
