I’ve been counselling in private practice in Halifax and Vancouver for over 11 years and my focus is in supporting adults with anxiety.
Anxiety is common and presents with a variety of symptoms and can result from a multitude of causes, and while these are common experiences they may become problematic when they interfere with our daily living. Anxiety may stem from unresolved negative experiences such as grief and loss events, health issues, relationship problems, workplace challenges, to name just a few.
My approach includes solution-focused, client-centered, and mindfulness-based CBT strategies. I’m a certified EMDR therapist and I’ve taken advanced training in Attachment-Focused EMDR, and Self-Regulation Therapy. I’ve completed a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training program and I’m a trained Conflict Management specialist. I help clients gain the skills and confidence they need to address their symptoms. As a long-term cancer survivor (touch wood) I’m familiar with anxiety and I bring genuine compassion to the counselling session. Clients can expect to learn effective and practical solutions to current problems.
