When life is difficult the resulting symptoms usually include depression, anxiety, fear, anger and/or withdrawal. Rather than avoiding these states I have helped hundreds of clients turn them into resources, significantly improving their lives --usually after only a few sessions. I have 25+ years experience working with couples, individuals, families and groups, and have supervised 20+ new therapists. I specialize with couples, helping them to move beyond arguing, tension, anger, resentment and distancing into happy couples. My clients turn their problems into workable solutions.

Sometimes, life can get downright challenging. We have an idea of what we want our life to look like, but problems such as anxiety, depression, or perhaps the effects of traumatic experiences get in the way of our ability to build the life we want for ourselves. It not only affects ourselves, but also our relationships with the ones we love most. It can feel very discouraging, and often, lonely. Thankfully it doesn't have to be this way for long. This is where counselling comes in, and this is where you can make the changes you have longed to see in your life in a safe and supportive space.

I love my work! For over 20 years I've been helping individuals and couples create a life they love with proven, measurable, effective and fast methods to break through old patterns, get past limiting beliefs, and create possibilities they never knew existed. This isn't therapy like you've seen it on TV or in the movies, it doesn't have to take years. If you're tired of the "same old, same old" you deserve to feel better.

Mind-Body Health: I assist people in developing three fundamental human "systems" of Mind, Body, and Spirit/Energy. These three interactive Systems work at the same time, like three cogs in a machine, and are somewhat unique to each person according to their outlook on life and the context they find themselves in. For example the Fear around COVID has brought forth additional stressors to impact these Systems by activating the sympathetic nervous system (the fight/flight/freeze stress response). Together we will develop practical life "experiments" to better activate these Systems for psychological flexibility (e.g., meditation)

My approach incorporates using knowledge of human design and development to provide a supportive framework from which to normalize and understand concerning emotional experience. I generally employ Schema Therapy to aid clients to identify self-limiting core beliefs and their origins. Somatic (body) awareness may be offered to enhance client awareness. This is an optional, skill-based, self-delivered aspect of treatment. Clients desiring to understand troubling emotional responses to situations, including relationships, stress, depression and anxiety, have consistently benefitted from the above approach.

Like many people, I grew up in an environment where we didn't talk about our struggles and emotions. From an early age, I learned to keep the difficult things inside and deal with my emotions on my own. In 1999, I became a crisis phone counsellor and realized that I wasn't the only one who had had this kind of experience. I realized that a lot of people felt the way I did and kept their emotions inside. For the first time, I learned how healing it could be to share struggles with supportive people.

Through therapy, you can save your relationships. In therapy I connect with: the potential you have to develop a nurturing, loving and caring relationship and the tender hearts behind the rigid and negative patterns that may have developed in your relationships. I believe: Relationships and desire to connect are the core of human experience. Your relationship, regardless of how severe your problems are, has the potential to become a safe and supportive base and comforting haven.

I specialize in the areas of anxiety, depression, and addiction. In my experience, anxiety and depression often show up together. When they take hold, we frequently fall into traps of addiction in efforts to numb the emotional pain. Addictions can be an effective short-term strategy, but they are not a solution that brings healing. Instead, they increase the pre-existing symptoms, usually adding a whole new set of problems as well. Whether it is a gambling addiction, an online gaming addiction, a shopping addiction, pornography addiction, a substance use addiction (etc), my training and skills are focussed on your healing, growth, and freedom.
