How I work

If you answer yes to any of the following questions, I can help!

  • Would you like to communicate better with family members, friends, partners or people at work?
  • Would you like to be able to identify your feelings and share them with others?
  • Do you think that you might be in an unhealthy relationship?
  • Do you find yourself agreeing to do things you don’t really want to do?
  • Do you feel like you are an outsider?
  • Are you frustrated that people do not respect your boundaries?
  • Are you and your partner having the same argument over and over again?
  • Do you feel stuck in your life and frustrated that you can’t seem to move forward?
  • Do you wish you could feel more connected with others?
  • Do you choose partners that need rescuing?
  • Are you over-functioning in your relationships?
  • Would you like some insight into why you repeat harmful and frustrating patterns?
  • Do you wish you were more active and had more interesting friends?
  • Do your emotions overcome you and inhibit you from expressing yourself?
  • Do you long to be accepted for who you are?
  • Do you wish you could speak up more?

How therapy works:

We explore the reasons why you might not have some of these things in your life.  We talk and use our shared knowledge and skills, and together we make a plan for moving you towards where you want to be in your life.  A place where you feel more positive about yourself, your life, and your relationships.

It is my hope that you leave our sessions with:

  • The feeling that you have been heard
  • The feeling that you have been understood
  • The feeling that I genuinely care about you
  • The feeling that you have been treated with respect
  • Practical skills that you can take out into the world and begin to use
  • Insight into your concerns
  • That you have received real and honest feedback
  • That you are not alone

I absolutely love what I do.  I feel it is an honour and a privilege that people trust me enough to share with me their struggles and pain, their successes and happiness, as well as their hopes and their dreams.  If you think you might like to work together, take advantage of my free 15 minute phone call where we see if we might be a good fit (778-533-9051).  I am always happy to hear from new clients.
