Helping individuals and couples manage challenging times through counseling
We are all facing uncertain times and increased stress. Change, whether desired or unplanned may require more than we are comfortable with. Therefore by seeking therapy/counseling with a self-compassionate mindset, this can help to establish an increased sense of well-being. An experienced therapist can assist you in moving toward personal acceptance, contentment and empowerment.
“Naming an emotion begins the process of regulating it and reflecting on it.”

Approach to Counseling Sessions
Individual counseling aims to create an enhanced sense of well being whether or not your concerns are situational in nature, or longer standing. Above all, clients require a confidential and comfortable environment to address their needs. With office hours to accommodate most schedules, your focus can be directed solely on your goals, concerns and building on existing strengths.
Couples counseling aims to improve understandings and emotional intimacy. Often, we can lose sight of what conflicts and disconnects are really about. Consequently, the goal is to gain a better understanding of oneself and your partner to begin breaking negative cycles and promote a more satisfying relationship.
Fertility counseling aims to help individuals and couples navigate the often-daunting path forward to achieve family building dreams. As a result, relationships can become strained and increase the loneliness that often accompanies fertility challenges. Therefore, seeking a therapist trained in the field of fertility and family building can assist you to develop effective coping skills while managing the complexities of fertility treatment.

Prior to the appointment, each individual will be able to discuss the counseling process with me and understand what to expect during our sessions. The most important thing is the relationship between the therapist and client, so understanding what to expect can alleviate any anxiety. You can expect an environment that is compassionate and safe, where I get to know you and your concerns. During our first counseling session we will discuss goals regarding what you want to get out of therapy, and give you perspective on how you want to grow as an individual, or as a couple.
