I think people are wonderful. But it’s hard when we see each other suffer. As a psychotherapist, I’m grateful to be in a position to help. I want to hear each person’s story, and I like to be there for the happy ending.
Things for us aren’t always easy. We’ve all been there. As a registered psychotherapist, I specialize in helping adults and couples work through the tough stuff.
For many of us, it takes courage to “go get help.” Often, it isn’t until the burden of pain, sadness, fear and shame becomes debilitating, that we find ourselves taking a cautious step toward change.
As a professional with 18 years’ experience, I never lose sight of how privileged I am to have earned the trust of those who would share with me their intimate and individual perspectives. I can always assure that my clients will be able to tell their story with dignity, in a safe, non-judgmental environment.
Whether the issues are described as anxiety, depression, adjustment, conflict, or fear, my focus is to help individuals and couples find clarity, self-acceptance, and resolution. Through cognitive-behavioural- based therapy, my goal is to ensure that the individual voice is heard and that communication barriers are safely and respectfully redefined. The reward for me is in seeing the smile that comes from people taking back control, and regaining quality of life.
These things are possible.
