"I work with a variety of clients and conditions while focusing on helping individuals, couples and families who live work-away lifestyles; often including military members, camp workers, business travelers, students and their families. Accessibility is a core value of my practice so comprehensive services are available online and in-office. For parents, lawyers and judges, I write Views of the Child Reports in order for children's views to be heard in matters where their best interests are being determined. I practice therapy through an integrative lens, examining body, mind and spirit as valuable parts to a healthy whole."

I use several research-supported approaches (e.g., Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, EMDR, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) to address: depression, social anxiety, panic, phobias, obsessions and compulsions (OCD), adjustment to chronic pain, trauma, anger management, stress management, life transitions, parenting, and family relationships."

"I draw from a range approaches depending upon your needs and preferences. Among them are cognitive behavioral therapy, interpersonal neurobiological ideas, family systems therapy, and attachment theory. It is common for clients to arrive with issues identified only to discover that there are other deeper and more fundamental issues which underlie them. I work at a pace compatible with your ability to integrate change. I am gentle and encouraging, but firm and forthright. I provide a free initial consultation so you can determine whether you feel comfortable with me. My aim is for you to feel welcome, safe and comfortably challenged."

Sometimes these situations can be dealt with in a relatively short period of time by a process of problem solving, or learning new ways of thinking and responding.

"Do you resonate with spiritual researchers like like Deepak Chopra and Kabat-Zinn? Are you looking to become a better person today than you were yesterday? To let go of the past and create a new future? If so, I may be able to assist you with a mind-body-spirit approach to counselling. This is a practical way, throughout your day, to rewire (e.g., neuroplasticity) your mind, your body, and integrate the spiritual (metaphysical) aspects of life. If this style of consciousness-based counselling resonates with you it may be the most effective way to free yourself from an old traumatic event, recurrent depression, or persistent anxiety."

What is a Sleep Disorder or Insomnia?

Almost everyone goes through bouts of sleeplessness in Victoria from time to time. Chronic insomnia, however, is marked by difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, or waking up too early. If it takes you thirty minutes or more to fall asleep, or you're awake for thirty minutes or more during the night at least three times a week-for a month or more-you're likely suffering from insomnia.

Insomnia has major effects on mood as well as alertness. It is also a classic symptom of depression.

The most effective treatments for chronic insomnia are behavioral techniques that eliminate sleep anxiety and allow the body's own sleep cycle to kick in. It may require as little as doing nothing. But Sleep specialists in Victoria or counsellors who specialise in sleep in Victoria, or simply a Victoria sleep counsellor, can help. Likewise, insomnia specialists in Victoria or counsellors who specialise in insomnia in Victoria, or simply a Victoria insomnia counsellor, can help.

Sleep disorders may include sleep apnea, narcolepsy or simply chronic snoring.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Victoria are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in Victoria you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in Victoria and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in Victoria or family therapy in Victoria.
