Counselling

Whether you are hoping to resolve your relationship conflicts, if you are coming together or falling apart, if you are having difficulty coping, or you need to understand why you keep doing the things you do, I want to help.

Individuals 

I believe that each individual has the potential to live their best life. I come from a place of co-discovery, to help you discover your skills and capacity to get there.

Coming Together or Falling Apart:

I am passionate about helping couples at all stages of relationship. Whether you are just entering into your relationship, you have been in it awhile and feel like you need some skills, or you are at the breaking point, and need help to make decision or move to the next stages, I want to help you get to where you need to go.
