I help you put past, present and future into perspective. Couples: Is the "glue" between you thinner now? Do you ask "Can we be friends/allies again? Manage conflict better? Rediscover our love?" Some counselling sessions with Signy, some 2-on-2 sessions with Signy & Steve Fick. We bring a wealth of life experience and model a relationship strengthened by challenge. I look forward to joining you in your self-discovery!

Living with presence helps us embrace life, even in difficult times. All types of Spirituality are welcome!
People describe me as warm, calm and non-judgmental with a wealth of life experience. I listen with empathy and attention as you discover inner strengths, build self-acceptance, and explore more fully who you are. Under consultation of Martin Rovers PhD, C.Psych and Kathryn Guthrie, RP.
