My Approach to Helping


Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being. If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals. Through my unique style in counselling, assessment and coaching, you can begin the journey to self-discovery, healing, and growth so you can live the life you were always meant to have.

My goal is to help you with your worries, anger, anxieties, conflicts, stressors and pains. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we will work together to better understand and resolve the challenges in your life.

I am an experienced psychotherapist, social worker and life coach. I have 30 years experience working with individuals, couples and families.

I specialize in 4 areas. The first is COMMUNICATION. Current research shows that poor and negative communication is the #1 destroyer of relationships. We will work through the communication issues and I will teach you how to communicate effectively - no matter the situation.

My second specialty is EMOTIONAL MANAGEMENT. I will help you to recognize and understand your own emotions. I offer many practical ideas about how you can manage your own emotions so that you can use and harness them, without being governed by them.

Third, I specialize in EMOTIONAL WOUND HEALING. Together we will discover the causes of your emotional pain, wounds or injuries. I will provide you with a comprehensive guide and map out a path to help you repair and heal your emotional wounds.

My fourth specialty is in MENTAL HEALTH. With my additional education and experience in psychiatry, I work with mood disorders, anxiety disorders, substance-related disorders, impulse-control disorders, including ADDADHD and personality disorders.
