Approach

I strongly believe that the collaborative relationship between counsellor and client is the most important aspect of your success, so I work hard to create an environment of warmth, trust, safety, and respect. This environment facilitates the healthy, collaborative process required to foster personal growth and change. I am committed to quality, evidence-based therapeutic practices to improve emotional and relational well-being. My goal is to equip clients with personal awareness,  emotional resilience, resourcefulness, and the capacity to cope with stress. I work with clients to build on the strengths and virtues that make life more fulfilling.

I use a variety of therapeutic techniques to address issues such as:
  • depression, stress, and/or anxiety
  • addiction and substance abuse
  • suicidal impulses
  • trauma recovery
  • low self-esteem
  • grief
  • job and career concerns
  • parental alienation
  • divorce and separation
  • co-parenting
  • mental and emotional health issues
  • relationship problems.

I welcome teens, adults and mature clients.

The client-counsellor relationship is deeply personal, and I consider it a privilege to assist you to your path of renewal.  Contact me today at [email protected] for more information or book an appointment below.
