Is your view of yourself and the world not what you want it to be?
Are your past experiences holding you back from a satisfying life?
Are you feeling down or anxious more than you want to?
Have you suffered a recent loss?
Do you want to feel more connected in your relationships and have better communication skills?
I work with individuals in my practice providing an integrated approach to counselling. When working with individuals I try and help clients find their own unique strengths and offer practical solutions to everyday issues. Sometimes this means we work in the present to find better ways to cope with everyday life. Sometimes it means we focus on the past to sort out longstanding issues that are still getting in the way of living the life you want. Sometimes it is a combination of both. It all depends on your unique situation and challenges.

Working With Me:
I deeply believe people can and do change, that is my life philosophy.
I have always been committed to helping people make positive changes in their lives. I am a highly practical therapist and believe it is important to work with clients in a direct and compassionate way. I have been described as warm, funny and deeply caring. I like those qualities in myself!
I use a variety of interventions such as EMDR, Imago Relationship Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy all beginning with the client’s individual needs. I help clients look at self-defeating patterns and help them find ways to change them. Each client is a unique individual. Regardless of whether a client is making decisions about life transitions, dealing with past patterns that need to change, coping with illness or depression or facing loss, I support a client where they are at and help them to deal with their present challenges. My philosophy in life is that all people have tremendous potential and dream of who they want to be. I think we all deserve to realize what is possible in our lives and live our best life. I feel honoured when I get to be part of this process with people.
