I work well with a wide variety of issues and people. My integrative approach includes a focus on your thought processes and beliefs, your relationship patterns, your feelings and your body experience, and your sense of meaning and purpose."

I have worked in and am comfortable with both short and long-term counselling in both private work and within a group setting."
"When you're sad or distressed, you need more than good advice or even good counselling. The goal of psychotherapy is understanding, and the sort of deep change that will lead to a happier life. Therapy is a focussed attention that allows us to see the internal workings of our minds. It helps us to be aware of mental processes without being overwhelmed by them. Therapy moves us beyond the reactive responses in which we get trapped. You will develop skills that will help you to redirect your inner experiences so you have more freedom of choice in your everyday actions and your life generally."

"I am not currently accepting new clients. It can be pretty daunting to imagine telling a stranger about deeply personal issues. And will it really help? In my own life and in the lives of my clients I have so often seen counseling ease the difficulties life throws at us, make the way forward a little clearer, lay old hurts to rest. If you and I together can build a trusting, respectful "working alliance", I'd say - and much research agrees - that it's likely to make a difference in your life."
"Welcome. Grief is an emotion that is rarely accepted in our society, because a lot of people are uncomfortable with it. I am here for you - to hear your story. And although people might withdraw from you (because they're hoping that you'll just "get over it"), this is not often the reality. I have direct personal experience with grief, having lost a father early, and then two children - one to suicide and one to cancer. I get it. I am here for you, to help you deal with whatever issues are causing you pain."
""Why am I always so anxious?", "will I ever be able to relax?", "why do these things keep happening to me?" If you have ever asked yourself these questions, take heart: you are not alone, and no, you are not "crazy". When bad stuff happens unexpectedly, we do whatever we need to do in order to cope. Sometimes these coping mechanisms born out of necessity backfire on us, and even though they have outlived their usefulness, we keep coming back to them--taking away the joy out of life. Now what? Now we take control back."
"Are you going through overwhelming change and challenges? Relationship difficulties? Deep sadness and loneliness? Feeling isolated, confused, hopeless? You are not alone. I am here to listen and help individuals, couples, and groups - Contact me for a free 30-minute initial consultation. Unexpected life changes and relationship difficulties can lead to anxiety, depression, anger, sadness, guilt. Other times, feelings of hopelessness can be traced to painful childhood experiences. Left unresolved, these emotional wounds can affect us as adults. Experiences of rejection and abandonment can affect self-esteem with thoughts of "I'm not good enough," or "I'm not worthy"."
