My practice is entitled 'Awareness: The First Step to Healthy Living' because I believe that if you are not aware of your strengths and potential and the nature of your relationships, it is not possible for you to move ahead in life. I treat serious mental health issues, addiction issues, eating disorders, mild autism, individual, couples and family issues (relational work), grief and loss, crisis intervention work, and, generally explore and build on positive self development.

When you dreamed about getting pregnant and having kids, you hoped it would be an easy process. You’d conceive quickly, have a healthy baby, your body would work as you expected, you’d feel in control of the birth process. You expected that parenting would feel intuitive, you would know what to do to meet your child’s needs, the act of parenting would bring you and your partner closer. The reality is that conception, birth and parenting can be full of regret, disappointment, and confusion. Unmet expectations around conception, birth and parenting can leave you feeling disconnected, full of grief and carrying a heavy load.

Therapy can be a transformative process that provides one's life with a sense of fullness, meaning and personal freedom. There are many reasons to go into therapy. There may be a sense of emptiness, not fitting in, a lack of self-worth, a history of vague anxiety or depression, unsatisfying relationships, or a feeling that something’s wrong or missing but not knowing what that might be. Therapy provides an opportunity to slow down in a supportive and non-judgmental environment. By slowing down, it allows parts of ourselves that may have been shamed, ignored or hidden (parts that are often hurting the most) to be seen and cared for.
