Registered Social Worker & Registered Clinical Counsellor

I work with people experiencing difficult problems. Such problems go by many names, and may be new or old, but all share the common trait of stubbornly obstructing our happiness. You might feel depressed, anxious, or stuck, unable to steer toward a more hopeful future. You might struggle with the overwhelming complexity of your life, or feel paralyzed by the choices it presents. You might find yourself caught in recurring patterns, unable to break free despite the hardship they cause.

Yet despite the hardship they cause, I believe our problems also carry essential insight about what is needed for their resolution. I work with you to reveal these insights, to gather their wisdom, and to transform them into opportunities for greater well-being and engagement with life. Ultimately, I believe that true well-being involves more than just quieting problems: it involves restoring the parts of ourselves that enable us to be full participants in this world we share.

You can book a consult with me to share a conversation about the problems you’re experiencing, and the life you’d like to live. We’ll talk about ways to help you move toward that life, using approaches that feel natural, intuitive, and possibly even exciting.
