Are you struggling with overwhelm, anxiety and stress? 
Are you feeling low and weighted down with life challenges?  
Are you struggling to make sense of grief or traumatic circumstances? 
I can help with these and many more of life's emotional challenges. 
I am committed to providing compassionate support that builds new perspectives & skills so you can have a full and meaningful life.  
I have been sharing with people on their journeys toward greater peace and wellness for over 25 years and as a clinical Social Worker for 18 of those years.  My varied career began with pastoral ministry in rural Nova Scotia, supporting many people in times of grief and loss, through bereavement and relationship breakdown.   The next phase of my career focused on working with mental health and addiction counselling centers where I supported people healing from many of life’s challenging issues.  I have also spent years working within health management settings, designing and operating programs for improving health and wellness. 
I know first hand how difficult emotions can take over one's life and cause us to be stuck.  I have struggled myself during times of work conflicts and career change to manage emotional turmoil and strengthen my sense of self.  I know who important it is to reach out and find support for difficult life situations.  I believe we all deserve to feel strong emotionally and have peace within and live lives that flourish.

  • Anxiety
