"I FIND WORKING WITH WOMEN TO BE EXTREMELY REWARDING AND PRIVILEGED WORK. A WOMAN WHO HAS EXPERIENCED HEALING AND KNOWS HERSELF IS A WOMAN WHO WALKS DIFFERENTLY IN HER LIFE. A WOMAN WHO IS FREE IS A POWERFUL WOMAN. POWERFUL WOMEN CHANGE THEIR WORLD."
Areas I Work In
The areas I work in include anxiety, worries and fear, self-trust, infertility, trauma, relationship difficulties, work stress, life transitions, grief and loss, self-esteem, compassion fatigue and burnout, adult daughters of narcissistic mothers, and loving someone with a mental illness.
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience
in which you really stop to look fear in the face.
You are able to say to yourself,
"...I can take the next thing that comes along".
- Eleanor Roosevelt
I am a Registered Psychologist (#3932) in Alberta with over 15 years of counselling experience and over a decade of post-graduate psychology focused training. I offer counselling services to adults (18+) and seniors, both individually and in couples. I also offer group therapy services. In my practice I am committed to providing a caring, compassionate and non-judgemental space for you to explore what’s troubling you and work towards your goals.
Currently, I am accepting new clients.
When you come to the edge of all the light you have,
and must take a step into the darkness of the unknown,
believe that one of two things will happen.
Either there will be something solid for you to stand on --
or you will be taught how to fly.
~ Patrick Overton, Author, Poet
