When life is difficult the resulting symptoms usually include depression, anxiety, fear, anger and/or withdrawal. Rather than avoiding these states I have helped hundreds of clients turn them into resources, significantly improving their lives --usually after only a few sessions. I have 25+ years experience working with couples, individuals, families and groups, and have supervised 20+ new therapists. I specialize with couples, helping them to move beyond arguing, tension, anger, resentment and distancing into happy couples. My clients turn their problems into workable solutions.

Do you feel stuck, either within yourself or with someone you're close to, and wonder what is holding you back? You desire being your true self and communicating authentically. Sometimes things feel all mixed up or dissonant, and feelings of sadness, confusion, or anxiety can block communication or taking next steps with confidence. Whether it's just you, or you with a loved one(s), I'd like to help you untie those knots and find beautiful movement. I bring an understanding of trauma, attachment wounds/styles, and neurobiology, as well as a value of social justice. I work exclusively online with clients across Canada.

I have a specific area of practice - Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. OCD is considered to be a debilitating, chronic, and sneaky condition. OCD often latches on to what is most sacred and cherished to us. It can cause us to question our morals, values, and beliefs. Much time and energy is then spent trying to gain relief from doubt, uncertainty, and distress. Breaking cycles of Obsessions and Compulsions is key to regaining intention, peace, and freedom.

In a world where people are experiencing increased anxiety and isolation it is important to find a place of safety and belonging. I believe people have the resources within themselves to thrive in this ever changing and complex society and it is my responsibility to guide you through the process of finding your own strengths. I have experience working with children and youth who struggle with anxiety issues stemming from family strife, school stress and self-esteem. I do family mediation and work with clients individually or as a couple. Without relationship human beings are lost, we crave connection.

* Currently only offering video sessions. Evening and weekend availability (as well as weekday)*. Throughout life we develop patterns of meeting our needs, responding to our emotions and responding to others. Expectations that others have for us may become expectations we have for ourselves and lead to living an unfulfilled life. Over time we can find ourselves stuck in these cycles that are no longer serving us and are getting in the way of living an authentic and meaningful life. This is when we may potentially experience stress, anxiety, depression, overwhelm and difficulty in relationships.

Right now we are dealing with a lot: COVID-19, the ongoing and escalating police violence against Black and Indigenous peoples, as well as the ongoing racism against Asian and South Asian communities and Hispanic and Latin communities. In these times we need to find ways to support each other through the isolation, uncertainty and hardships. I offer several sliding scale options to make counselling as accessible as possible.

We formulate beliefs about ourselves early in life. If we grow up in a nurturing and loving environment, individual beliefs might be that I am lovable, I am worthy and I deserve good things in life. Unfortunately, many of us grew up in families where our caregivers struggled with their own negative beliefs and were therefore not able to be there for us in a way that we needed them to be. Many people grow up thinking I am not worthy of love, connection or the good things in life.

My approach incorporates using knowledge of human design and development to provide a supportive framework from which to normalize and understand concerning emotional experience. I generally employ Schema Therapy to aid clients to identify self-limiting core beliefs and their origins. Somatic (body) awareness may be offered to enhance client awareness. This is an optional, skill-based, self-delivered aspect of treatment. Clients desiring to understand troubling emotional responses to situations, including relationships, stress, depression and anxiety, have consistently benefitted from the above approach.

To conceptualize therapy, the following might be a helpful picture. Recently, we decided to hatch our own chickens. After a couple of weeks, we candled the eggs to get a glimpse inside. The glimpse was amazing and mysterious—we could see life happening beneath the shell. This is what often happens in a counselling session; we look beneath the “shell” and get a glimpse of the mystery and complexity of the human experience. From this deeper looker inside, we have many choices and changes that are possible.
