I believe that everyone deserves safety, trust, and hope. These build the foundation for our belief in ourselves, connection with others, and help us to live a meaningful life. Stress, transitions, and unexpected challenges can uproot us, and when that happens it’s my privilege to create a safe, grounding connection to help you find your way back to yourself and others. Through a combination of trauma-informed and evidence-based counselling interventions, I provide a soft place to land, where you are seen, heard, and are safe to speak your truth on the road to healing.

Specializing in mindset, self-acceptance and inner dialogue, I believe in a deeply personal, relationship-based experience that builds on the uniqueness of each person. Anxiety, depression, stress, overwhelm, unhappiness, relationship struggles, and so on, are all too common for many of us and we can get caught up in the incorrect belief that our problems can’t change. We often don’t even realize the underlying story that’s determining what we think and believe.

I believe that we all, at one time or another, find it difficult to explore our thoughts and feelings—I honour such acts of courage, bringing confidentiality, non-judgement, and unconditional care to session. Working at a pace that feels right for you, I provide support and gentle challenges as you process your experiences and develop insight into your life so that you may heal, grow, and ultimately be free to live your life in a way that is fulfilling and true to who you are.

I have been working in Social services for over 30 years; over 20 in private practice. I enjoy using the eclectic combinations of modalities that I have learned. In general I find that as humans, our minds cause us a great deal of suffering. Learning to understand our minds so that we can change the negative scripts that keep us stuck in the same patterns is the greatest gift I have to offer. It is only then that we can experience our full potential of happiness and fulfillment in life. I use a client-centred approach. My practice welcomes the diversity of all humans.

This focus sets up a positive mindset that helps you build on you best qualities, find your strengths, improve resilience and change worldview to one that is more positive. A positive attitude, in turn, can help your expectations of yourself and others become more reasonable.
