"I believe that all people were born with positive potential. Unfortunately, due to all kinds of hurt that happens in life, we unconsciously build layers of protection onto our inner Self, blocking our ability to see things clearly, and limit our capacity to respond to daily life in a healthy and constructive way. I believe that your true Self knows what the loving and meaningful life path is for yourself. I am committed to being a Compassionate, Curious, Creative, Confident, Calm, Clear, and Courageous guide to assist you to grow toward a better sense of well-being either for short term, or long term therapy to know yourself better."

Your child has changed – they are withdrawn, teary or more anxious. Their emotions are out of control. Perhaps they become angry quickly – 0-60. Sometimes it’s hard to be around them. You’re concerned for their future – what happens if this continues or gets worse. You want to help, but are unsure of what to do. If any of these challenges sound like what you or your loved one are going through, please know that counselling can help. "
