About

Let’s work together to explore the challenges creating uneasiness, confusion and pain in your life. We will work in a comfortable, accepting space to create a meaningful, grounding experience to help you gain new awareness, explore choices and promote positive and rewarding change and self-care. Traditional talk therapies are not the only way to explore your story, and I often use sand play, art, storytelling, journaling, metaphor and imagery to reach a deeper understanding.
My approach is eclectic and holistic, using a wide variety of techniques such as Gestalt, Expressive Therapy, CBT, Solution Focus, Family Systems & others. I have over 30 years of experience as a clinician working in a variety of areas including, mental health, addictions, relationships, personal growth and life transitions.
Clients have told me I am direct, engaging, compassionate, resourceful and have a great sense of humour. I provide counselling services for individuals, couples, teens (15+) and seniors. I look forward to journeying together & embracing your life pages.
