Are you thinking that something needs to change? Do you feel a little tired, scared, hurt or fed up? Are there meaningful things in your life that aren't working out right now? Is it time you stood up, and took on, what has been heavy on your mind or heart? I have worked with hundreds of individuals, couples and families who have faced challenges and transitions that many of us experience at some time in our lives. I am familiar with the things life can throw your way, and how to be able to thrive, not just survive, afterwards.

I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with 9 years experience working with Children, Youth and their Family. As Carl Rogers quoted “People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” I believe we sometimes need a safe and trusting space to understand our inner struggles and recognize ways to cope. I see my professional role as helping individuals recognize their own strengths and beauty by being present with them in their mental health journey.
