Thanks for taking a moment to learn more about me and my services.
First, a little about myself. I have had a love of helping people since a teenager, when I was asked to be a peer counsellor. As a result of that experience, I pursued a career as a Social worker obtaining my BSW in 1982. In 2004 I returned to university to pursue my Masters in Social Work to further enhance my counselling skills. I still love the work I do as the first day I started.
Today I have over 30 years of counseling experience in the areas of
· Relationship issues including communication, conflicts,
· Relationship break-up,
· Loss and grief,
· Infertility, and miscarriage/stillbirth loss
· Transitioning issues.
I have also extensively trained in the area of Marriage Counselling,
· Advanced training in Emotionally Focused Couples Training
· Completed Level I Gottman training (program certified educator)

I meet you where you are at in terms of your current life challenge with a non-judgmental approach and capacity to understand how your behaviors, feelings and reactions make sense in relation to your current life situation.
Clients tell me they appreciate my down to earth, engaging & personable style that quickly helps them feel at ease and helps them to feel connected with me.
The greatest compliments I receive from a client, is when they tell me that I have allowed them “to open up in ways that they have not experienced before”.
