As a licensed Professional Counsellor with 25 yrs.
experience in Social Work and Child/Youth Care Counselling, I have tools that
will help you identify underlying issues that affect patterns in your life and
relationships. You will be able to gain knowledge and ways to cope in your
current life situations. My belief is that every person has the strength and
capabilities to achieve anything they put their mind and heart into. Sometimes
life gets overwhelming and we lose sight of our own abilities and strengths.
My experience includes working as a counsellor for
youth and families at a Family Enhancement Center. I have been facilitating
groups on understanding/managing anger, substance abuse and parenting
throughout my 25 yrs. of counselling. I have also worked for many yrs. as a
substance abuse counsellor in a day treatment center. This included working
with individuals, youth and families struggling with addiction. Currently, I
have a private practice and facilitate groups on a regular basis.
My Counselling Practice includes working with
individuals and families that are experiencing difficulties in the following
family of origin/impact on current functioning
I am open, caring and non-judgemental. I will be
listening, asking questions and exploring new ways to understand your
experiences and helping you find strategies that work. You will receive
homework (realistic/manageable goals) which will include practicing new ways of
showing up in your life as well as exercises that help you get more insight
into yourself and your relationships.
