Blending a variety of therapeutic techniques, I will teach you simple skills and strategies plus provide helpful feedback.  I aim to assist you in confronting today’s challenges or explore your long-lasting patterns that keep you feeling stuck. We work together to overcome life’s roadblocks.

Why do women seek support?

Sometimes we can feel like a burden sharing our inner most concerns, issues or ideas with a friend or family member.  Professional counselling and/or coaching provides the space where the focus is on you – no agendas, no judgements. The time is yours.

It’s important to know that counselling isn’t a quick fix, nor a magic wand over your issues.  Therapy is an avenue to share you inner troubling thoughts, difficult feelings and secrets without any judgement. I believe you should take an active role in determining how many sessions are needed.
