Supportive Psychotherapy for the Mind and Body
Therapy is something you and I create together which involves patience, trust, and hard work. I help clients think about what has kept them from creating the life they truly envision for themselves and help them move forward in making that life a reality.
When you have space to reflect and explore possibilities, you will discover new ways of relating and will figure out how you can do things differently. The interventions I use will help you understand your longstanding behavior patterns and negative perceptions that have been getting in the way of being fulfilled.
Therapy is an investment in yourself. The value you get is something that stays with you for life. Please contact me for an individual, couples, or family therapy consultation today. Make the first step and get in touch with me. I look forward to being part of your journey.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is exploring your thought patterns and history with a trained professional and typically involves the exploration of long standing habits or patterns that you want to change. These patterns may have been useful in the past, but it is now interfering with your normal daily functioning. Psychotherapy helps you learn how to take control of your life and respond to challenging situations with healthy coping skills.
How can therapy help me?
Therapists can provide support, problem-solving skills, and enhanced coping strategies for issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship troubles, unresolved childhood issues, grief, stress management, body image issues and creative blocks. Many people also find that counsellors can be a tremendous asset to managing personal growth, interpersonal relationships, family concerns, marriage issues, and the hassles of daily life.
Is therapy confidential?
We maintain the highest possible standard of confidentiality. Everything you tell your therapist is confidential. We will not share information about you with anyone without your prior permission, including the fact that you are in therapy. There are some exceptions to this rule related to our responsibility to ensure that people are safe (imminent danger to you or others, child abuse, and court order).
