We humans suffer because we don’t get what we want and get what we don’t want. Most of us want to find a quick cure to our emotional pain. Quick cures sedate the pain which is the source of Wisdom, Compassion, Understanding and Real Love. My approach is for the person who wants to answer the timeless questions of: “Who am I?”, “Where did I come from?”, “Where am I going?” from their own depths and to their full understanding. It is in this journey, through self-inquiry, that they become happier, wiser and more compassionate.

Your past does not have to define your future. You are not doomed to continually repeat the same mistakes. There is a way to manage your stress, racing thoughts, and overwhelming emotions. You have another story waiting to be lived. There is help, there is hope and there is healing. With my help, training and approach to healing, you can heal and grow beyond what you think is possible. I know this because I have healed from my own trauma story. It is possible to experience joy.

Seek first to understand is central to my work. There are many of us who have gone through life feeling misunderstood and judged and have felt the need to hide parts of our experiences to feel accepted in conversations. Taking the first step to begin talking about your experiences in ways that capture the essence of who you are can feel scary. Creating the space for open and honest conversations about what matters to you help me to better support your journey to self-discovery and growth. I blend a holistic, non-judgment approach with effective evidence-based treatment strategies.

If you are reading this you are likely considering the possibility that something in your life needs to change. During the more difficult times we can often feel alone, misunderstood and unable to see the possibility of things getting better. This is not because of some inherent flaw or weakness in us, which I often hear clients say, but a part of being human. Life, like mood, is fluid. We may not be able to control many of the external variables but we can learn to navigate them and be well.

Life can be difficult. It can be exhausting, challenging, unfair, and full of pain and loss. Sometimes we feel anxious, depressed, confused, stressed out and we don’t know how to handle it. Maybe you feel lost, at your wits-end, stuck and unsure how to carry on. Maybe you’re looking for a way forward. Maybe you’re hoping to uncover the strengths you already have. I use a non-judgemental, collaborative, person-centered approach that puts you in the driver’s seat. I am caring and authentic, and I strive to provide a space where you feel safe and comfortable.

Solution Focused Brief (SFBT) Counsellors
Solution-focused therapy in M4J, sometimes called "brief therapy," focuses on what clients would like to achieve through therapy rather than on their troubles or mental health issues. The therapist will help the client envision a desirable future, and then map out the small and large changes necessary for the client to undergo to realize their vision. The therapist will seize on any successes the client experiences, to encourage them to build on their strengths rather than dwell on their problems or limitations.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in M4J are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in M4J you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in M4J and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in M4J or family therapy in M4J.
