A therapeutic rapport that embodies feelings of trust and comfort are the tenets that will result in your counselling experience being a success. Often in the first sessions you will be able to determine if the counselling relationship is a good therapeutic match. I pride myself on my ability to build warm, caring and trusting collaborative relationships with my clients. My clients often tell me they appreciate my ability to connect with them, respect them, and guide them to look at their circumstances in ways they might not have thought of on their own.
- I work with individual adults and teens on a wide range of personal and interpersonal issues. I have two primary areas of specialty. I work with women and men in mid-life who are experiencing struggles such as depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and anger as they relate to issues such as abuse, trauma, grief, work or parenting/family issues (separation, divorce, aging parents) life-changes and relationship challenges.
- I also work with adolescents who are experiencing struggles such as depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and anger as they relate to issues such as abuse, trauma, bullying, stresses at school, family and sibling conflicts and alcohol and drugs.
With the right therapeutic fit I believe you will benefit from my expertise in helping you deal with the issues that you are bringing to counselling and therapy.
