Areas of focus and experience include: co-occurring disorders (trauma, depression, anxiety, and chemical/alcohol use disorder), individual, couples and family counseling, child play therapy, process/psycho-education groups, indigenous and inter-generational issues, guided meditation/hypnosis.
If you were to put together a list of the most important people in your life, who would be on your list? We all live in relationships and when we are not in harmony with them this can cause anxiety, sadness, confusion, low self esteem and worth. Our core relationship is with our self. I invite you to take the journey inward, to explore, and learn how to bring out your greatest potential.

I have extensive experience treating relationship issues, anxiety, depression, couples issues, all forms of addiction issues, substance abuse, childhood trauma, codependency, issues related to growing up in a dysfunctional family and self esteem difficulties.
Feeling overly stressed, disconnected in relationships or just going through a down turn can be very uncomfortable. If you are struggling to figure your situation on your own, I can provide hope, connection and strategies to address current stressors as well as behavior patterns that may have started in childhood. Seeking a therapist thats a good fit for you can be stressful as well. Great things can happen when you do find the right fit. This is very important to me. I am down to earth, experienced in life and have a talent for bringing out the best in people.
