Counsellor

Hello and welcome to my website. You have made it here, which means that you are looking for a safe place to talk about sensitive issues. Counselling helps you to change dysfunctional patterns and heal the wounds that block you from achieving your full potential in life. Fear, loneliness, anger, emptiness, insecurity, depression can leave you feeling overwhelmed and stuck. I work with issues in personal growth, stress management, relationships, sexuality, career, health and creativity. 

I have been working in the social services sector for 25 years and have a Social Services Worker Honours Diploma, and a Post Graduate Diploma in Existential Integrative Psychotherapy. I am working towards registration with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario and working under Supervision by a qualified therapist. My private practice has been in operation since 2018. 

Areas of Expertise

Counselling, Psychotherapy, Psychodynamic Approach, Somatic Body Work

Many people have created a public self to adapt, but this can get in the way of genuine intimacy and self understanding, preventing you from realizing your full potential in life. The beginning focus might be an issue from your everyday life or something you are feeling in the moment. Counselling provides the space for reflection, validity and the support to help you to generate the life you want. This may bring about a change in how you treat yourself, a lifestyle change or a change in relationship or career, all in the service of you living the life that is fully yours.

If you have tried to get rid of "negative" emotions, only to find yourself repeating the same old patterns, then counselling could be for you. How can you discover the joy of being yourself and create the life you want if you are blocking out how you really feel and think about things? Instead of trying to just control the emotions of painful life events, counselling may help you to face them. You may be able to move from an anxious holding to an alive, spirited self, dancing with these experiences. Counselling may also open up your capacity to feel more of everything and to think clearly. There can also be spiritual bliss in accepting all aspects of who you are. Problems and symptoms can become doorways to self knowledge. They can be indicators as to what your real identity is asking you to envision and act upon. The satisfaction of living the life that belongs to you is priceless.
