Sometimes the challenges we face in our daily lives become too difficult to manage alone. We may need someone to talk to who can help us find solutions. Whether you are facing the challenges of raising children; struggling with intimate relationships; exploring issues of sexual orientation or gender identity; experiencing difficulties with life transitions (parenthood, blended families, grief & loss or caring for an aging family member) counselling can help. Research studies and personal testimony support how effective counselling can be. With 15+ years of clinical experience, I can help tailor a therapy program designed to meet your personal counselling needs.

Painful and terrifying experiences that we experience in childhood as well as in adulthood, can have lasting negative effects on our lives. These experiences often leave us feeling overwhelmed, stuck, isolated and having difficulties managing strong emotions such as anxiety, depression, anger, sadness, shame and guilt. Taking the first step towards addressing these challenges can be anxiety provoking; my role is to join you on this journey towards healing.

Let me tell you my story: It was a warm morning in fall, when my mother died after a long period of suffering. I had always dreaded that day, and I had no clue how my life could continue. Her doctor encouraged me to see her death as though it had brought her freedom. Freedom was a concept that I had never known before; violence were what I knew. It was that day when I was 19 years old that I left home forever. I left behind abuse, and began my search for freedom. I found it, 19 years later.
