""Change only occurs once the need to change exceeds the pain of staying the same." Working with individuals, couples, and poly groups, together we develop awareness of systemic factors influencing conscious and subconscious behaviours and decision-making patterns. Then we focus on increasing the strengths and resources available to, and within, the client. Building on the basic Buddhist tenets of mindfulness, compassion, and congruence, we can paint a different picture of both personal and relational issues, and more effective, authentic ways of growing towards your goals."

Well I have extensive experience working with people who have felt that way, and who feel like they are struggling sometimes just to make it through their days. I work with issues that are sometimes too difficult to talk about such as: professional burnout, vicarious trauma/compassion fatigue, caregiver burnout, relationship conflict that impacts personal and professional well-being, even suicidal thoughts.
