From everyday struggles and family stresses to traumatic experiences, our ways of coping are constantly challenged. In my practice I support individuals in the development of their resilience to enable them to solve difficult problems and begin to thrive. With 20 years of experience my depth of empathy and skills provide the foundation for a safe, colaborative relationship. I understand that isolation debilitates and shakes people in times of distress and that connection with others is crucial to healing. I see my role as helping people discover the value of connections and supporting them as they move through the process.

We often find ourselves unable to move forward due to the enormity of the situations that are presented to us. We may feel stuck, tired, and at times, hopeless. So we armour ourselves to face the world. This armouring occurs in the form of addictions such as overeating; using drugs and alcohol; isolating and repeating patterns of toxic relationships. As a result our hearts become numb. We move through life with an armored exterior, fearful of experiencing our feelings and emotions. By creating a safe environment, I help unlock and release pain.

COUNSELING HELPS PUT LIFE INTO PERSPECTIVE When life throws an unexpected curve, common reactions are often difficult to understand. Moods can change on a dime, thoughts at times can seem irrational, nerves jangled. These reactions are natural yet can be overwhelming and tough to manage. For some, this adjustment can have an adverse impact on relationships, job performance, or motivation to carry out a daily routine. It often helps to process these experiences with someone, especially a professional, who will genuinely listen and validate what’s going on.
