My Approach to Helping

Relational counselling involves a unique skillset and knowledge base which I have specialized in. What may seem exceptionally confusing and painful can be understood, healed, and have new tools applied to help move forward with clarity and confidence.
Relational concerns can be overwhelming, resulting in deep hurt, uncertainty and distancing. However, It is possible to have better, healthier, loving relationships! I work with you to help you understand your roles, interactions, disconnects, how argument escalation happens, and then provide you with tools for your triggers and communication breakdowns. Relating is a "learned process". We can learn to turn toward, not against or away from one another and have connection again!

In individual therapy I empathically address anxiety, stress, burnout, grief, and depression. There are specific road maps to follow to come back from burnout, grief and depression which you will learn and use toward complete healing. Anxiety also can be understood - where it comes from, how it works and you can use new tools to manage and live calmly. Anxiety does not have to prevent you from living a life of peace and joy.

Also, starting February 1st, we will be running a group on Learning Stress Management Resiliency!

In this 6 week workshop you will learn what stress looks like, feels like, where it comes from and what to do about it!! Do you feel like you would like to learn how to juggle and manage all that is on your plate? You have more control than you realize, and building resiliency in managing stress can promote personal mental and emotional strength. If this sounds appealing to you, join our 6 week workshop to help equip you with tools to keep calm and carry on - literally! Call 403 836 2882 to sign up. Cost is $80 for all 6 weeks.
