Hello! I am grateful to say that I am from the Kootenays. I was born and raised here and after a time away to attend university, begin a family, and establish my spouse's career, we chose to return to the area to raise our four children and and enjoy all that the area has to offer. You might call me a life-long learner for I chose to earn a Master of Counselling and shift careers after a rewarding career as a high school teacher.
I am here to assist you in dealing with a variety of concerns, whether you are in a state of crisis or simply a bit 'off course'. My personal belief is that we have, within us, the ability to find answers to our problems and my goal is to assist you in better understanding your thoughts, behaviours, and feelings and how they are affecting your life.
Just as you need to exercise to grow muscle, you will be asked to practice new skills that may be uncomfortable at first, but with time will feel normal. My hope is that you will learn a new set of 'tools in your toolbox' so that you are better able to cope with life issues today, as well as in the future.
