Announcement icon I have been working with my clients virtually since the pandemic began, and seeing the same improvements as face to face counselling.

About

My ideal client is someone who is ready to work together collaboratively, to discover the appropriate solutions that will help to ease suffering.
I help my clients to manage their difficult experiences with new skills, and to identify practical solutions to improve their situation with a renewed sense of hope.
We all struggle with the difficulties of living from time to time, and it can be helpful to know that there are solutions despite sometimes feeling we are alone and helpless. I feel a great privilege in being able to work with people who are willing to face the struggles of life that we didn't ask for, and to courageously reach out for support.

Finances

  • Cost per Session: $180 - $300

Qualifications
