Life can be wonderful at times.  It is also true that for all of us, life can  be difficult at times.  Every life stage, from childhood through to old age, has its' own special challenges and excitement..

How we go about trying to handle our challenges tends to define our sense of happiness.  I believe, from life experience, that we all could use a bit of help sometimes.  Admitting this and accepting help can take a degree of courage.  To entrust your private feelings and business to a professional stranger involves some level of risk...  You, as a client, are the expert in terms of what or who 'feels right' in terms of assistance through therapy.  I have over 35 years of experience in providing therapeutic assistance through over 40,000 sessions with clientelle aged 5 through 90- to individuals, couples and families...
I care about people and ultimately, their safety, welfare and happiness.  I trust that my life-comittment in the professional field has validated my sincerity.    If there are issues,  if someone struggles with frustration or pain or stress or loss, then I feel well equipped to address those needs successfully alongside of my clients.  Our goal is always successful healing and growth and change.
Relationships are the bridge as well as the glue in human existence-  whether to self, to others, or to our values.  That is my expertise.  With training in over 10 types of therapeutic intervention, I definitely feel equipped to help in facilitating growth, healing and successful change with a wide variety of life challenges and/or traumas.

My qualification include MSW, CSW, RSW.  I have been a member of the Niagara chapter of Ontario Association of Social Workers  [OASW] plus a Registered member of the Ontario College of Social Workers for over 25 years.
Most clients with insurance coverage are entitled to reimbursement due my registration.  My training in areas such as:  Cognitive Behavioural Therapy [CBT], Transactional Analysis, Reality Therapy, Trauma Therapy [CISD], Hypnotherapy, Systems Therapy, Solution-focused Therapy, Collaborative Therapy, Stress Therapy, Grief-Counselling, Child and Adolescent Therapy, Couples/Relationship Therapy ... can only serve to facilitate beneficial change and healing for most clientelle.
I wish you all well in your decision making process-  whether with myself or any qualified therapist.
Best wishes!
