Welcome. If feelings of anxiety, fear, numbness or sadness have become intolerable for you, science has proven that talking to a trained counselor helps. You are ready to take the next step and connect to the right counselor to share your story.
 
About me
My interest in counseling started way back in Grade 11, when I decided I wanted to be a Psychologist. Obtaining my BA and MA research degrees in Psychology at the University of Manitoba, my career path veered into the world of work. Over the last 30 years I have worked in education, health care and the church, providing support services in a variety of roles. In the second half of life I realized that helping others heal through counseling was my calling, and so I completed an MA in Counseling at Providence Theological Seminary. 
 
Therapeutic approach to therapy
Brain research has exploded since I studied it 30 years ago. We now have scientific evidence that talking to a therapist can have a tremendous positive impact on your brain and on your health. I am so interested in the impact of therapy on the brain that I approach therapy from the discipline of interpersonal neurobiology (IPNB). Essentially, IPNB believes that healing takes place within a relational, or interpersonal, context. IPNB guides me to select interventions and techniques from all disciplines that can help you address the root causes of your concerns. This includes, but is not restricted to, attachment, cognitive-behavioral, narrative and feminist therapies.
 
Populations served
I provide individual and couples counseling to women and men ages 18 and up, working across the lifespan from young adults to seniors. My interests and experience lead me to specialize in anxiety, depression, grief and loss, stress and burnout, eating issues, survivors of childhood sexual abuse, crisis, trauma and post traumatic stress, managing chronic pain, and personal development and wellness. Over 14 years of experience working in the church has also led to my interest in working with pastors, pastor’s spouses, missionaries, TCKs (third culture kids) and MKs (missionary kids). Aligning with a Christian perspective, I enjoy working with people of all faith or no faith beliefs, and can discuss any spirituality concerns you may have.
 
Professional membership
I am an Associate Professional Counselor of the PACCP (Professional Association of Christian Counselors and Psychotherapists) and accountable to their code of ethics.
