Just by starting a search for a counsellor, you are taking a big "leap of faith". Faith that you can make small changes in the right direction. Faith that your life can open up in new ways. When you are in the darkness it can be hard to even imagine the light. It can be hard to believe that joy is possible. Let me help shine the light on the path.I will support you to make the changes that you want to make in your life.
As a Registered Clinical Counsellor and Marriage and Family Therapist with over twenty-five years experience, I have quite the varied "tool box". Together we will figure out the counselling approach that works best for you. What I know is that no matter where you are in your life, and no matter where you have been, real change is possible.
In order to better know how to serve you, I will begin our journey by finding out more about you and what you would like from counselling. I work from a goal-oriented, strength-based perspective.Together we will make sure that we are drawing on the counselling approach that is the best fit. I will check in regularly to ensure that we are on track, and that the goals and methods we are using are making a difference in your life. I am open to shifting gears, and trying other things until we find a way of working that helps you the most.
Counselling works best in a safe environment where open dialogue can happen. Whether you are grieving a loss, weathering a life transition, facing a health challenge, struggling with depression or anxiety, fighting to keep love alive, or healing from a trauma, I can help.
My primary therapeutic approaches include: Self Regulation, Solution Focused, Narrative, Family Systems, Emotionally Focused and Meaning-based approaches. I also have specialized training in working with trauma, and I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP). I am also registered with the Crime Victims Assistance Program.
