I am probably not your typical therapist. I have seen a lot of things during my many years in social work, so nothing you say will surprise me. You are looking for counselling or therapy because you are stuck. I am attentive and supportive as we work through things, but it is not uncommon for me to inject some humour or a bit of swearing into our sessions. I will challenge you to lean into the pain, to see your issues in a new light, and I will be your biggest cheerleader as we work together to help you achieve your goals. I accept you for who you are, but I can see who you want to become.
This approach also applies to my work with my colleagues. I am trained in Clinical Supervision and I am passionate about helping good therapists become great therapists through honest reflection and hard work.
I am coming up on my 25th anniversary with my husband and I am a busy mother of three young men with whom I share my love of our pets, music, sports and the outdoors.
Life is never perfect. Together, we can learn to accept the imperfections, come out the other side of the pain, and learn where your values lie as you move forward. I never want you to feel like you are going it alone.
