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.

I work in an integrative way. What we do and how we approach it will depend on what works best for you and what you need at this time. Some people know exactly what they want to work on. Other people come because something doesn't feel right or they're not functioning as well as they could but they're not sure at first why that is. Others come even though things are going well but they'd like to develop greater awareness or fulfilment in life. We will work together to develop an approach that suits you.

The foundation of my counselling practice is a client-centered approach to facilitate the rediscovery of self, the healing or management of pain, and incorporation of the practice of mindfulness and self-compassion into your life.

Relationship and safety are two core concepts that guide my approach to practice. A grounded understanding in the neurobiology of development and trauma, the role of attachment experiences, as well as contextual factors and a belief in the body’s inherent capacity for healing help inform my assessment and interventions. We heal through knowing ourselves and in connection to the world and the relationships around us.

Have you been going to therapy for a while? Are you struggling with low mood, anxiety, pain, sexual disorders, or other symptoms, that you, or the medical system can't explain? Do you have complicated family dynamics, or require support in your relationship? I may be able to help. Having an intimate understanding of these issues, I offer a unique perspective on various concerns. Working as an emergency first responder and having been deployed to theatres of conflict has helped me to understand the complexity of trauma. I work with individuals, couples and families to help support the journey to inner strength.

Human suffering at any age takes many forms. Conflicts and breakdowns in relationships of all kinds are not uncommon. Life can be traumatic or at the very least, unsettling. Self esteem sometimes needs reshaping or recharging. Alienation, frustration, chronic anxiety and worry take their toll, often experienced as fatigue and lowered immunity to illness and burnout. Fear, grief, indecision, shame and guilt can be paralyzing. Has life lost its meaning and direction? I am here to help you find your way again.

Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum.
