What I Do?

Leading towards new opportunities of growth and change with a strong interactive and dynamic outlook

With over 25 years of experience in psychotherapy, faith-based and transformational healing & growth, counseling, and spiritual care I continue to enjoy the opportunity to help people face-to-face, or with telephonic, internet, and video consultations. I facilitate new opportunities for growth and change with an interactive and dynamic outlook. I have extensive experience in many areas of life and the emotional pain that holds us captive to our pasts or the fears of the present, causing us to fail in caring for ourselves and those whom we love.

I provide opportunities for resolutions to past and present of damage, equality, inclusion and equity, enabling people to tell their stories in various ways. I enable this in person, online or by phone, through Individual Counselling & Therapy; Support Groups offering care and connection, and Psycho-Therapeutic Courses promoting understanding and healing.

I work with people with disabilities and others, breaking cycles of manipulation, mistreatment, misuse or exploitation, helping to restore their choice in relationships and life. Working with people from all walks and ways of life, I am able to stand with you in the midst of your struggle, with the belief that our stories empower change.
