Introduction:
It is my sincerest mission to facilitate complete healing for every client and patient I come in contact with within an environment of pure infinite Love, Compassion, Acceptance, Peace and Joy while holding space for perfect physical, emotional and spiritual health.

There are times in everyone's life when events or experiences overwhelm our ability to cope, and we turn to those around us for help and support. Sometimes, though, seeking professional counselling is the best option. As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Certified EMDR Therapist, I believe that I can provide effective support during times of stress and struggle, helping you take care of yourself and start feeling better.I work with clients who are facing a range of personal, relational and emotional challenges. No two people are alike, and my practice is grounded in a respect for your individuality. My focus is on listening and getting to know you, and supporting you to achieve your counselling goals.

I believe that trauma, no matter how big or small, wether it happened to you yesterday or 50 years ago, manifests itself as "disorders or mental health issues" both in our minds and our bodies as a result of not being properly processed.  Subsequently, many events in our lives attach themselves to these traumas to further complicate and strengthen the negative effects of the original trauma. Using EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), I help clients process traumatic events so that they are no longer bothersome. I can even help you overcome fears of future events.

Trauma can range from being bullied in school, embarrassing moments, rape, or the witnessing of domestic violence or death of a loved one.   Any type of trauma can then have a negative impact on your life, giving you feelings of fear, anxiety, depression or just plain "feeling stuck."  EMDR can help alleviate your symptoms, usually in just 4 to 6 sessions.  

Do you feel like "I'm not lovable," "I'm not good enough,"  "I'm less than or not worthy," or have other negative cognitions about yourself?  I am a firm believer that we all deserve to live our happiest life.  I have seen EMDR work wonders for many people, and I am devoted to helping as many people as I can live their life to their potential.   Call me today, and begin the journey that will allow you to live life as you would like to live it.
