Counselling is available for individuals and couples. While most clients are over the age of 18, I also see teens. If you have a teen you are concerned about, please contact me.
I use a variety of techniques and seek to match my approach to each client and the concerns they are bringing. Within a client-centred, trauma-informed framework, commonly used theory and methods include Family Systems Theory, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psycho-dynamic/talk therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Relational Life Therapy, Dr. John Gottman's method, and Solution-Focused Therapy. I integrate relaxation techniques such as mindfulness when applicable and am comfortable exploring issues of faith and spirituality and how this relates to our everyday lives if this is helpful. If a referral to another helping professional is necessary, I am more than happy to assist you in making that transition.
Some reasons people seek counselling include:
- Relationship issues (including cross-cultural difficulties)
- Marriage enrichment
- Remarriage and step-families
Sexuality issues and concerns
Chronic pain and illness
Divorce and separation
Abuse (sexual, physical, emotional, verbal, financial, spiritual)
Grief and loss
If you or anyone you know is experiencing, or has experienced, any of these things, there is help and support. Please contact me for more information.
