Welcome

Let's bring peace to your problems.

 

Many of the women and men who come here, come with hearts that are big, but heavy. Whether it's because their marriage - the relationship that once brought them joy, love and happiness has become strained, heavy and disconnected - or whether it's because they feel powerless to break a negative pattern they find themselves stuck in, they are here because they feel confused, overwhelmed and don't know what to do to make things better. 

 

You’ve found this page because you’re hurting but also because you are so ready for change.  You’ve read the “right” books and done all sorts of “self-work” – meditation, marriage counselling, life coaching, therapy, maybe even medication too…but here you are, again, stuck in the same spot.  It’s okay. This is the place to help you to figure things out.

 

You are welcome here.

 

 

We could be the perfect match if:

 

 

You'd like help getting to the heart of the problem and fix it, once and for all. 

You long to feel confident and equipped to come at your old problems in a new way.

You crave relief...the kind of relief that comes from knowing you're not alone and that you have the help of someone who really knows how to get you through this tough time.

    

 

I am here to offer:

 

Should we talk?

 

The counselling model I use is one I created and while it is a proven and structured form of emotional foundation therapy, it feels more like a comfortable and easy conversation with a friend ~ a conversation of depth that’s gently guided, leading you back to a place of peace, confidence and clarity.

 

Therapy is personal, and so, my approach isn't for everyone; I think it's ideal if you:

 

  • have problems you haven’t been able to resolve or understand fully despite all best efforts,

  • are open to examining old wounds but not eternally living in them,

  • aren’t into blame and finger-pointing,

  • would consider yourself open to learning more about your emotions and how they may be impacting your life, or

  • have tried couples counselling or other forms of therapy in the past but haven't had the results you had hoped for.

 

 

Ready for the next step?

 

If you are struggling in your relationship or have problems you haven't been able to resolve, you must be feeling pretty stressed and it may even be a very scary time for you. I really think I can help minimize the stress, reduce the pressure you're feeling and give you some really great tools to help you deal with the struggles you’ve been having.

 

You can learn more about the services I offer by reading my support page or, you can get speak to me directly.  It's important that you're feeling completely comfortable and confident in your decision to work with me so I offer a free phone consultation to make sure we're a good fit for each other.

 

The goal of the free phone consultation is to:

 

  • give you more details about my support options and the counselling model I use, 

  • help you understand how you will benefit from my program,

  • help you get a feel for me so you can decide if you're comfortable working with me, or not

  • give you a chance to ask any questions you may have. 

 

If you're interested in arranging a time for us to chat send me an email.  I'd love to see if I can help you.

I'm proud to announce that I have been rated as one of "ThreeBest" Marriage Counsellors in St. Albert!

TESTIMONIALS

Thanks again for all you’ve done as I know that I have taken away many pointers and concepts that have made me more self-reflective, a better problem solver and helped me understand not only my partner but myself. You’ve been wonderful!
