I have 25 years of experience in the field of counselling. I have a Masters degree in Social Work and a PhD in Interdisciplinary Studies in Sociology/Psychology. I also train mental health professionals in a college setting and conduct research on recovery from addiction and stigma.
I have a caring presence and the knowledge, skills and tools to help you make sense of your troubles and resolve them.
I have found that small changes can make a great deal of difference in our lives. I will encourage you to move away from an over- focus on the problem, towards dreaming and thinking about how to get what you want. I work in a goal oriented way and will help work towards the changes you want to make.
My approach can be characterized as eclectic. I can draw upon a variety of methods to help you move forward in your life. I will suggest what approach is best for you. Most people benefit from counselling in 12 sessions or less.
