I am confident that your heart and mind can be transformed so that you can live a life with purpose, no matter what turmoil you are currently facing or have experienced.
I have over 30 years experience helping people move forward with their lives. During my past careers as an Image Consultant and my career as a Human Resources Professional I helped people with difficult life challenges. Moving into a counselling career was a natural progression for me, as I am passionate in helping people experience a life filled with meaning and joy! My approach to counselling is non-judgmental and empathetic and I work with many cultures and religious orientations.
I have earned a Bachelor of Religious Education in counselling studies from Emmanuel Bible College in Kitchener and a Masters of Divinity in Counselling (MDiv) from Tyndale University College and Seminary in Toronto. I am a member of the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario as a Registered Psychotherapist in Ontario.
I counsel people from a family systems perspective utilizing an integrative therapeutic approach to counselling. I have additional training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Emotional Focused Therapy, Trauma, Loss and Grief as well as training in Solution Focused Therapy.
I have been married to my amazing husband for thirty-three years. We have two incredible children with wonderful spouses and we are blessed with six precious grandchildren! My family is very important to me and it is where I continue to learn my most valuable lessons. It is in the midst of my family that my heart continues to change and adjust to new ways of thinking. They challenge me and together we find new ways of connecting to one-another.
