Counselling with Compassion

“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom” Aristotle

From time to time we may feel lost in our relationship with ourself or others. Therapy provides an opportunity, in a safe and accepting environment, to explore the root causes of distress and to clarify a path to self discovery and positive action for moving forward. 

Through working together you will gain insights and understanding which will help develop your own resiliency and success.

“In crisis there is opportunity” Chinese saying


Over the 30 years in practice as a registered Social Worker in Oakville, I have been honoured to assist clients navigate crisis due to a wide variety of concerns. It is during these times of crisis and turmoil that we are most open to seek change and resolution. This requires courage, support and compassion.

I bring a fresh perspective based on many modalities and a mindfulness approach that enables opportunity for growth, self compassion and relationship improvement. 

I believe our ability to create change is related to our capacity to practice awareness and acceptance of body, mind and heart and to translate this to positive outcomes.
