I am an experienced counsellor with a Master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. I work with couples and individuals to help them break patterns and make the changes they desire in their life and relationships. If you are reading this, it is likely that you are contemplating the difficult step of opening yourself up to a stranger. I understand that this can be difficult. I want to assure you that I am careful not to judge you or take sides. I see my role as providing you (or you and your partner) a safe environment where you can gain deeper understanding of what created the behaviours that you would like to change. My style is to combine probing questions, designed to get you to think if in a new way, with education and communication tools.
I work with couples on issues of communication, sexuality and infidelity. I also work with individuals helping them create stronger self worth, reduce reactivity and feel more in control of themselves, make changes to destructive and harmful patterns and resolve past harm and abuse.
My office procedures and location guarantee your privacy and confidentiality. Please feel free to contact me in you have questions or visit my website for further information. For those whose circumstances make it difficult to afford counselling there is a counselling intern who works under my supervision, fees are on a sliding scale based on ability to pay.
