Registered Professional Counsellor

In V8N 1L6 - Nearby to Shawnigan Lake.

I help families come together in a collaborative and compassionate way. With a solid grounding in the love you have for each other we define the problem, reveal the family context and design solutions. I also work with special needs children (such as ADHD, Learning Disabilities, Asberger's) who require a structure that allows them to be the unique individual they are within the family dynamic. We collaborate in a compassionate way to provide the family with a containter to meet the needs of all family members. Tension and anxiety are reduced, which gives your family more opportunity to be together as a supportive and loving unit.

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

Most family therapists inadvertently create more chaos through their well-intentioned efforts to assist a family move through a change process. Why? Brains are inherently deregulated (all of us, may I add) and most talking and dialoguing misses brain-centric problems that need more intensive help. Many times the emotional trauma created by years of solving problems ineffectively can wreak havoc on the brain's parasympathetic nervous system, not ever giving the family a break from flight or fight thinking.

In V9G 1A1 - Nearby to Shawnigan Lake.

Each family is as unique, as are all relationships. Today, families are not only made up of the traditional two parent same sex couple; but are blended, same sex, single parented, having children raised by grandparents and extended family and friends-more than ever in our history. There are times when all types of families experience difficulties that we can not resolve on our own. As your counsellor, I can provide you with a neutral perspective and provide suggestions and strategies to cope. I can provide a safe environment and provide mediation. All parties will be given an opportunity to express themselves openly, with the benefit of finding a resolution, clarity and peace.

Families and relationships can be most challenging within the family constellation. Things can get really confusing and tough to understand and unravel when the people that you are closest to and most cherish, are also the folks that you are fighting with. Family therapy can be a vehicle to help return the family to its harmonious balance. Imagine enjoying each others company again, laughing, communicating and being able to solve those inevitable problems together. Discover how to reclaim your relationships back from acrimony.

In V8P 3W8 - Nearby to Shawnigan Lake.

Every family is unique but every family I have ever worked with has difficulty balancing togetherness and separateness. Blended families have an even greater challenge. I will help you identify patterns and practices that limit closeness and intimacy and I will assist all members to better differentiate in order to realize authentic togetherness while respecting personal boundaries and the need for self.

In V8N 1C3 - Nearby to Shawnigan Lake.

I love working with families! Over the 20+ years of my career, I have helped ageing adults, adults with disabilities, caregivers, parents, youth & younger children. In working with parents & children, my focus is to support the whole family (rather than "fixing" the young person). Parents who feel educated, supported & empowered are in a much better position to make a difference in the lives of their kids than I am! In working with older adults (or adults with disabilities) and their families, I can provide guidance & a safe space to help work out differences & plan for the future. In all cases, if you live locally I prefer to visit in your home, which helps me better understand you.

Registered Clinical Counsellor

In V8T 2Y6 - Nearby to Shawnigan Lake.

Often a family arrives with an identified patient, that is, in agreement that one member in particular is the problem in the family. Together, we investigate how this family member serves a purpose in the family system overall and how all members function to keep this person in the role of the problem member. From here we explore the roles that all the family members are playing and whether these roles are desirable or not. If not, we consider how to make changes to help the family system function better overall. Often changing one part of the system creates change in the rest of the system too. In this process, each member must feel understood, respected and valued as part of the whole

I work with individuals that have a loved one displaying addictive behaviour. This can be anyone from a family member to a friend. Often loved ones of those with an addiction are "lost in the chaos" and their feelings are minimized. In truth, loving someone with an addiction can be awful. I work with loved ones to understand their personal boundaries, how to set them and communicate them clearly. We will work towards you "stepping back" from your loved ones addiction and learning to care for yourself again.
