To me, as a Registered Psychotherapist, human being, and author of 'Binge Crazy: A Psychotherapist's Memoir of Food Addiction, Mental Illness, Obesity & Recovery' (2018), seeking help is a strength. It requires the courage and wisdom to reach your own truths. I'm rooted in Gestalt therapy, a holistic, here and now approach encompassing every aspect of your life. To find what works best for you, I include other modalities, from creative forms of expression to more structured methods. In Gestalt, you are the expert (on you) and I am the guide to help you explore what needs healing.

Working within each client's unique timeframe, needs, and goals, I can help to clarify and create space to explore experiences of oneself and ones' life.
I work with adults and couples to help them move towards a state of continued growth, compassion, and self-awareness in a way that is collaborative, strengths-based, and empowering. I believe in creating a client-therapist relationship that fosters authenticity, support, and space for both acceptance, and for change. This can begin in our very first session. Together, we can begin to tease apart the adaptive approaches to dealing with and moving through life you've grown accustomed to, and begin to decipher which of these patterns are serving you, and which you may be interested in moving beyond.

Are you struggling with anxiety, depression, or difficulties managing school or work related stress? My focus is on providing a caring, non-judgmental and safe space for clients to share their stories and work through their challenges. I believe that there is no “one-size-fits-all” method to supporting clients, and trust the client is the expert of their own life. I also understand the importance of developing a collaborative therapeutic relationship and strive to help my clients to recognize their existing strengths, while acknowledging their unique needs, priorities and values.

Let's build together a unique process to improve your quality of life.
How about improving your mental health? Counselling has a lot of benefits if done with a qualified professional. My approach is Phenomenological and Humanistic-Existential. I consider with empathy and active listening that every person has experiences in a unique way and has the possibility to resignify their challenges and achieve a higher life quality. I also use the Brief Focal technique, which prioritizes the planning, strategy and intervention in the appointments. I'm available to answer all your questions and start this process with you.

Experiencing loss in life is 100% going to happen. Loss may be death, loss of relationship, a pet, an opportunity. It can be expected or sudden/traumatic. Loss causes a seismic shift in your world, turning it upside down and now its affecting your relationships. Navigating or preparing for loss can be isolating & make you feel all sorts of confusing things. You may be trying to emerge from this with a deeper understanding of yourself, improve your relationships, find confidence in your direction in life, restore a sense of safety/assurance in the world or just to cope with what is happening. Either way, I'm here.

It is my belief that for healing and growth to occur for someone seeking help, acceptance without judgement is crucial, recognizing and acknowledging the woundedness and unmet needs within the client. This perspective encompasses and acknowledges the entire person with whom I am working, including the physical, intellectual, emotional, interpersonal and spiritual well being of the client. No one seeking help is turned away due to the condition from which they are suffering. My goal for each client is to provide a safe, trusting space so that healing and growth can be experienced.

I have experienced life changing, wonderful counselling, and not-so helpful counselling.
Clients work with me to support them when they are feeling stuck; or faced with decision making and change which is weighing on them; or through times of distress in relationships, with career transitions or career development, parenting or life in general. Clients also work with me when they are being proactive with their emotional and mental health and want to stay focussed on their wellbeing. Whatever brings you to this place you are welcome. Setting up a free 15 minute phone consult is the first step. This allows us to both see if how I work could be a good fit for you at this time.

In a world often dictated by societal norms and expectations, the pursuit of an authentic life is a profound, rewarding, and transformative journey. This path is not about conforming to external pressures; it’s about honoring your true self, your passions, and your values.

I believe that every client is an expert on their own life, and it is a privilege to stand by you and empower you as we navigate the 'tough stuff' together.
Regardless of the path that we decide to embark on, there are moments when we may feel as though we don't have the resources to cope. Having someone to bear witness to our suffering and support us as we explore our internal resiliency can be life-changing. Working in the mental health field for over 9 years has shown me that stress, depression, trauma, etc. does not discriminate, nor should it be a defining part of who we are.

Life Coaching Counsellors

What can I expect from life coaching?

Clients and coaches will typically start by identifying the problem area(s) that the client hopes to address—then, the coach will help the client brainstorm potential solutions and explore concrete techniques to help the client attain their goals. Coaching is typically short-term and focused on finding solutions in the here and now, rather than exploring a client’s past. In addition to strategies aimed at the client’s specific concerns, coaches may encourage general stress management techniques such as meditation.

Can a life coach help treat anxiety?

Because the majority of life coaches are not licensed clinicians, they are not qualified to diagnose or treat anxiety. Anyone struggling with anxiety or another mental health condition should seek help from a licensed mental health practitioner. However, some coaching clients who struggle with subclinical anxiety report that working with their coach on other problems—such as career dissatisfaction or unhealthy habits—has a positive effect on their anxiety.

Can life coaching be done online?

Yes. While life coaching often happens in person, many coaches conduct sessions over the phone or via online platforms such as Zoom or Skype. Because life coaches are not subject to local licensing regulations in the same way that therapists are, they are able to see clients who live in other locations.

How long does life coaching last?

Life coaching tends to be a shorter-term process than therapy, though it does not always unfold over a specific period of time and is instead based on the coach’s or the client’s preferences. Coaching often takes place over three to 12 months but may be shorter or longer if necessary.
