Individual Counselling

Individual Counselling

Your story matters.   I offer a caring, safe place where you can openly share about what is troubling you and find unconditional acceptance and support.   


I do my best to understand the nature of the problem and offer understanding, compassion, and guidance. I work with you to learn helpful ways of understanding, coping and responding to situations. This may include exploring common patterns, providing feedback, teaching problem-solving strategies, practicing new skills, or suggesting helpful resources.  

 

I offer professional, research-based  treatment options. I explain helpful elements of various therapeutic approaches and together we design a plan that you feel fits for you.  


Problems and symptoms are connected with the physical, mental, social, emotional and spiritual aspects of who we are.  However, we only work on the areas you feel ready to work on. 


Having overcome my own struggle with trauma, anxiety, and emotional pain, my heart is tied closely to the work I do in a special way. I hope you will find my approach kind and compassionate.  


I offer spiritual support from a Christian perspective for those interested.
