  • Online-counseling methods:


I learned the long way that life is not meant to be consistently unhappy, unsure, or unfulfilled. Life is also too important to take too seriously. I use an integrated person-centered approach to work with you. Life changes and we can take control of how we respond to most situations. In counselling you'll be able to safely exhaust what you've been carrying or stuck with. We will work with the methods you think will be most helpful to restore your balance. Developing healthy relationships are vital to a more fulfilled and happier life. No matter the lifestyle or length of time together, people can change and situations change. Communicating your needs, wants and having yourself seen and heard is important.

I have learned we each own our best solutions for our life. My role for you is to be a secure guide while you work through difficult thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Essentially, I help facilitate the development of your process to let go or solve what is causing you grief to create sustained change.
 
Some of the models I work with are:
 
  • Solution Focused Brief Therapy - Is effective for fast coping skills. This process builds on your previous experiences, solutions and strengths.  
  • Mindfulness / Breathing - Effective stress reduction and can increase self-awareness.
  • Person-centered / CBT  - Is more prolonged with many tools from dialogue, mindfulness to worksheets and even experiments.  Trauma reactions, PTSD, depression, anxiety, conflict, intrusive thoughts, feelings and invasive thinking can be reduced.
