My practice is built on a solid foundation of professional experiences and relationships. I have invested years working directly with people from across the lifespan and in a variety of settings. This includes extensive experience working with children, youth, adults, couples, and families.
Enhancing Your Wellness
I have learned that when people are given time, space, tools and nurturing support, they can make the changes necessary for better, healthier, and more productive lives.
One of the primary goals of professional counselling is to facilitate change. This begins with deep listening and empathic inquiry in a safe and non-judgmental environment. By employing effective clinical practice skills, counselling can bring deeper personal insight, awareness, better ways of coping, solving problems, and improved relationships.
I offer a wide variety of counselling options to meet your needs including:
All of these many services are designed around you. Your needs and well-being are of the utmost importance to me, your professional counsellor.
I am a highly qualified professional counsellor with years of education and experience that enable me to work productively with clients from across the lifespan.
My clients’ wellness is of the utmost importance to me. In addition to clinical, professional counselling, I believe one of my roles is to help clients integrate holistic mind-body strategies. These might include mindfulness, meditation, visualization, movement/yoga, somatic awareness, and inquiry.
I believe that nature and creativity, including art, music, play, and humour are examples of vital resources that are necessary for full, balanced, and productive lives. I have found that clients connected to their resources are Resilient, Authentic, Healthy, and Happy.
We are surrounded by a host of natural resources that can facilitate and maintain healthy change; our personal relationships and even our own bodies are often untapped resources that can help us live full, meaningful lives.
