As a licensed Professional Counsellor with over 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. Our daily practices take us in a certain direction. Sometimes
life gets overwhelming and we lose sight of our own abilities and strengths.
My experience includes working with youth and families, individual\couple counselling, facilitating groups on addictions, anger and parenting. I worked for 12 yrs. as a
substance abuse counsellor in a day treatment center. Currently, I
have a private practice, continue to facilitate groups and present workshops in the community. The workshops usually include addictions, anxiety, self esteem, trauma and attachment based parenting.
My Counselling Practice includes working with
individuals, couples 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.
