As a young person, I was curious about who we were, what influences shaped us and how we got to be the way we were. I was happy on the outside, but always searching for answers on the inside. There is no doubt that my own early familial experiences impacted me emotionally, and so began my search for more meaning and happiness in life. I discovered the truth about choice, and that no-one could take that away from me, except myself. I learned about authentic expression and voicing my truth, even if others didn’t want to hear it, and I learned non-attachment, the biggest learning of all.
After living and working in many countries worldwide, I fully embrace a global approach that is inclusive of all and honours all diverse paths. With a wealth of personal and professional experience, I help others realize their own true value and authenticity. I work with individuals, teens, couples and families in areas of life coaching, psychotherapy, holistic counseling, group work and experiential workshops. My clients tell me I am thoughtful, non-judgmental, open and engaging. They feel supported and heard in each session. I artfully blend many modalities together, resulting in solutions-focused therapy and client-centered work.
I specialize in working with individuals who are struggling with low self-esteem and low self-confidence, anxiety, depression, conflicts in relationships, fears and confusion about life’s direction, emotional eating, career concerns, addictions and chronic health concerns. If you have experienced a life transition such as divorce and or relationship conflicts, major illness, loss of a loved one, job loss or career change, midlife transitions, you may find yourself questioning your beliefs, patterns, thoughts and habits and what your life suddenly means.
I know that finding the right counsellor is very important, and it is for that reason that I offer an initial complimentary consultation, to see if we are the right fit and to see how I can support you in your journey.
I have a wealth of training and experience that I use in my work, that include the following:
