Philosophy and Approach to Counselling


I am dedicated to treating clients as unique individuals and to help them resolve personal struggles while listening non-judgmentally and showing compassionate acceptance. My approach emphasizes that people can learn the skills and strategies they need to grow and overcome the obstacles and challenges that stand in the way of healing and greater life satisfaction.

My method to counselling draws on family systems, experiential, and cognitive and behavioural therapy models as well as additional training in Grief Recovery, Relational Life Therapy, Gottman Couples Therapy, and Prepare & Enrich for premarital/marital couples. 

It takes courage to reach out and ask for help when the challenges of our daily lives are too hard to manage alone.  Healing and change comes when we are willing to examine the feelings, thoughts and beliefs, behaviours and attitudes that contribute to our pain, and explore new ways of perceiving, thinking, feeling, and behaving that will lead to greater peace and satisfaction in our relationships with others and our selves.
