About Me

I have 15 years of experience in the field and have continued my education by learning about CBT, ACT, DBT, and EMDR. I believe that we all have the capacity for happiness and that certain things in life get in the way of us achieving it. The cause for this might be past hurts, trauma, anxiety, depression, or self-doubt. It could be a sense that things are "good enough" just as they are, or even a fear of hoping for better. These hurt feelings and barriers weigh us down and prevent us from forming healthy relationships, engaging in fulfilling careers, or even identifying what we truly want out of life. Counselling can be an incredibly beneficial way to remove those barriers and work towards the life you hope to live. I spend my personal time connecting with nature, trying to improve my mindfulness practice, and wondering what to eat next. I have also apparently made it my personal mission to plow through all of Paulo Coelho's books.
