Understanding why we do what we do can bring greater clarity. But understanding is only part of the answer. I will help you uncover the patterns in your behaviour and discover their roots — and I will help you to form new and healthier ways of being. The past has shaped us, but it doesn’t have to imprison us. Let me help you to create a better tomorrow
Do you hate to get out of bed in the morning? Are you struggling through most days? Life doesn’t have to be that way! Let’s help you deal with stressors in a positive way and create more meaning in your life. Depression is very treatable. You deserve to thrive, not just survive! Call me today and we can start to find the path that works for you
Relationship and Marriage Counselling
Are you unhappy in your relationship? Would you like to learn how to treasure each other again? There are many ways to improve things between you and restore caring, IF you are both committed to the outcome. I believe in the work of Harville Hendrix and also in the value of agreeing to disagree sometimes, and to work around it. Forgiveness is a gift to ourselves as well as to our loved ones. Let’s get started — the sooner the better for the health of your relationship.
Grief and Loss Counselling
Life isn’t fair. You loved someone, and now they are gone. Or maybe you’ve lost a job you love… or become disabled. Your whole world has been turned upside down. Sometimes it seems like there’s not much point in going on, but that’s not really the case. Let me help you move through the stages of grief without getting stuck. You deserve to have a wonderful second act. Let’s write a great new script together!
You loved someone, and now they are gone. Or maybe you chose to end a bad marriage or common law relationship. Either way, your world has been turned upside down. Let me help you move through the stages of grief without getting stuck, deal with practicalities such as finances and helping your children adjust, and when you are ready, help you begin to get out there and meet new people. You deserve the best start to your new life
Family counselling takes into account all members of the family, because you all affect each other. In addition, blended families have special challenges that stem from two styles and two sets of rules. It’s tough to get the balance just right, but it can be done. I also have experience with kids and teens with oppositional defiant disorder. Let me help you improve the functioning of your family. Your long term happiness is at stake.
Everyone has a niche, a kind of work where they can really shine. I can help you find your niche and develop strategies to help you find the kind of work you seek. Even in a tough market, there are ways to get more of what you want. Put my combined background in marketing and therapy to work for you now. Life’s too short not to love what you do!
Helping You Manage Stress and Anxiety
Do you sometimes feel so tense you could scream? Is social anxiety keeping you alone in your home and missing out on life? Maybe you’re okay in some situations, but there are others where you could really use some help. There are strategies and skills that can help you. We will work with a variety of tools, including CBT, journaling and meditation, to reduce your stress levels and to help you get more out of life.
Sometimes you’re so mad you just want to explode! Is that how you feel? Do you have trouble controlling yourself once you start to feel angry? Would you like to learn better ways to get what you want out of life? Learn how to recognize the signs that you are losing it and to interrupt the pattern BEFORE you explode, and you can save your relationships, your job… and your self-respect!
Eating Disorders and Weight Issues
Would you like to be free from worrying about your weight? Would you like to be healthy but not obsessed with diets and working out? I have a great deal of knowledge about nutrition, self-esteem and self-acceptance. I can help you break the patterns that are damaging your health and your life, and find a better balance. Learning to love yourself just as you are can help you to feel better for the long run.
Have drugs or alcohol taken over your life? Are your relationships and/or work suffering? Do you need help to learn other ways to feel good? Let’s talk about how you can get back in control of your life. You don’t have to go right to the bottom before you start on new and better path… and the sooner we help you feel good about yourself again, the sooner you’ll experience joy in living.
Are you lesbian, gay, bi or transgendered? Are you polyamorous or kinky? I am comfortable discussing issues with and helping all types of people. You’ve found a friendly and accepting place where you can be yourself. I also help people of all types who are having issues loving their own bodies and being comfortable with sexuality.
