Life throws curve balls. Reaching out for help is not always easy. My goal is to create a space where you feel safe in expressing your feelings and fears, hopes and desires; and to help you obtain a sense of control over your life. The death of a loved one, job loss, divorce and relationship difficulties can be unexpected and painful. With a gentle and sensitive approach, I help you to feel supported and skillfully guided to manage and reduce anxiety, access hidden strengths and potential and develop new skills for living a more balanced and possibly joyous life.

I can help you with anxious thoughts and depressive feelings. I also work closely with those struggling with eating disorders, providing counseling on body image distortion, fear of gaining weight, and distress with overeating. As well, I am a certified Prepare/Enrich Facilitator, for pre-marital and couples counseling.

You can expect to be heard. You will experience counseling in a confidential, caring setting - where you explore your feelings and are supported in making helpful changes. You are not alone. Go ahead and contact me. Together, let's address your concerns and build wellbeing and wholeness in your life.
