“You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn how to surf.”  

- Jon Kabat-Zinn

Life is hard sometimes, really hard.  We are faced with many challenges and hurts along this journey and it’s easy to feel lost, alone and overwhelmed.  We’re not meant to figure it all out on our own.  Counselling/therapy can provide with you with a space to be authentic, vulnerable and to receive the non-judgemental support you need to surf the waves that life brings.

When you engage in therapy with me, you can expect a gentle approach.  I will challenge you to move forward, but always at a pace that feels right for you.  I believe that you are the expert and that you know what you need.   My areas of experience include substance use, addiction, binge eating, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, shame, anger, trauma, self-harm, grief, loss, fertility issues and pregnancy loss.

Together, we can work through the issues that are holding you back from your best life.  I look forward to hearing your story.
