Thanks for taking a look at my profile. If you are looking for a counsellor it's likely that right now you feel stuck in some way. Stuck problems are frustrating and can make you feel disconnected in your relationships. It can even affect how you see yourself. There are many people just like yourself who are stuggling in some way. Looking for a counsellor is a sign that you are ready for a change.
I have spent 28 years in this field with a specialty in counselling youth and their families. Over the years I have also helped clients of all ages deal with their anxiety, depression, loss, trauma, loneliness, career, identity and existential issues, cultural challenges, work stress and relationship difficulties. I continue to feel honoured and gratified to be able to do this kind of work. I still look forward to each session just as I look forward to meeting you.
I have come to believe that the most important element in being helpful is the quality of the connection between my clients and myself, a relationship based on safety and mutual respect. I come to my work with an open heart and offer my clients empathy, as well as a balance of encouragement and challenge, grounded in honesty, compassion and kindness.
