Areas of Counselling Practice

Whether you need help with your intimate relationship, personal development, career coaching for your job path, have parenting or relationship concerns, have an addiction that is out of control, are struggling with issues around sexuality, or feel like you need to increase your self-esteem, I can help.. I am also skilled and experienced in assisting clients with Anxiety, Depression, Anger Management, and communication challenges, amongst many other problems.

You do not have to have a "serious problem" to benefit from the services of a professional counsellor. Many people get stuck from time to time and need a place of understanding and clarity. Problems can become confusing especially if they have been around for a long time or there are other surrounding circumstances. I am an expert on how change occurs and at helping move you on to new possibilities much more quickly than you might be able to achieve on your own.
