I am a Canadian Certified Counsellor with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. I hold a Masters Degree in Christian Studies and a Masters Degree in Counselling. I am trained in EMDR Therapy and in Gottman Method Couples Therapy.
I use an integrated approach to counselling which is anchored in attachment theory and neuroscience and uses therapeutic approaches including EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy), CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), Positive Psychology and Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT). I employ many tools to help clients including education, journaling, mindfulness, movement, and Heart Math. Hope and humour are also important elements. Spirituality and faith can be meaningful additions to therapy and are incorporated at the client's request. I am a Christian and a humble student of many faiths.

What about you?
When people come to me, they often don’t know just what the problem is. They are often stuck, suffering from anxiety, depression, grief. They may have lost their job and just can’t get themselves back to work. Their relationships may be going badly and they find themselves in a repeating pattern of conflict with their kids or their spouse where every disagreement tends to go down the same familiar path that leads no where good. It’s important to know that these problems are not unsolvable. They are symptoms of deeper issues, learned behaviour and are often emotionally driven.
You may relate to this struggle. I believe you have what it takes to change yourself and your life. You may need some help however, understanding what is happening in you, neurologically, emotionally, spiritually and psychologically, and you need some help changing problematic ways of living and thinking.
You may need to better understand what is happening with your emotions and work with them instead of against them. Then you can learn to live differently and cultivate a healthy life that grows good things.
It is a holistic process. It entails relearning behaviours and thinking patterns. It may require exercise and better diet. But you too can have your “aha!” moment. I’ve seen it many times, and it can mark the start of a new life. Why not try it? If you are willing to do some work, I am here to help you and coach you to a better life.
