Are you feeling lost, scared, facing challenging and difficult times?
Struggling to find a sense of connection, belonging, purpose?
It’s amazing to me how quickly 20 years have gone by since I started this work.
For me, this work is about empowering you to discover your truth and to realize your full potential.
I feel it is an honor to sit in a sacred space with you and to receive you, and your deepest truths.
My focus in counseling is not so much about changing people but about creating a place where change can occur.
I believe all of us have three very basic needs and when these basic needs are met we are on our way.
The need to be seen.
The need to be recognized.
The need to be loved for who we are.
My Counselling Approach:
Reflects my belief that I am here to help you discover the answers you already have within you by providing an experience to trigger this awareness for you.
I base myself on an Integrative Psychodynamic approach. I look at a person holistically and address the thinking, feeling, and doing levels of a client.
I draw from Existential, Gestalt, CBT, Solution Focused, and Person-Centered techniques depending on the client, their needs and their presenting problem.
Who Can Benefit From my Approach:
People who want to create change in their lives.
People who feel stuck lost or need direction and focus.
