“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?…And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. ” Marianne Williamson
My areas of comfort and special expertise
I am comfortable working with anyone,—male or female, individuals or couples, young people or older people, regardless of race, sexual preference or religion. My particular areas of strength are in working with anxiety, stress, emotional pain, grief and loss, parenting, finding inner passion, strengthening relationships, self-empowerment, transitions, wellness and personal intention. I have a strong ability to connect with youth.
I have training in many forms of counselling and take a pragmatic and integrative approach. I appreciate aspects of Gestalt, Hakomi, Narrative, Family Systems, Gottman, amongst other counselling approaches. I believe in using whatever approach matches the style of the person I am working with.
