Home Coming

Are you burying your head in the sand and not dealing with emotional confusion, self-limiting beliefs and pent-up physical energy? 

Looking for a psychologist or counselling in Coquitlam for help in resolving issues related to anxiety, depression, trauma or relationship concerns?  

Do be in touch.

Shift out of stuck into flow.  Feel better now.

When you’re feeling overwhelmed, unhappy, and mired down in relationship problems, you’re often at cross-purposes in life. It’s kinda like the ‘little engine that could’ – try as you might go forward, you still feel a frustrating tug yanking you back to the stuff that’s just not working for you.

And in case you’re wondering…you are so not alone!

If getting out of bed is meeting the challenge for the day or you’re so beside yourself that only a “beam me up, Scotty” gets your feet back on solid ground, it’s time to get out of stuck and let go into flow!

Yes, I know how it is – the highs, the lows and all the turbulence in-between. Through my work with many clients traveling not only from the Tri-Cities area (Coquitlam, Port Moody, and Port Coquitlam) but also from Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster, Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows and beyond, I’ve discovered that there’s a faster route to “break on through to the other side”.

After all, things get better by change not by chance!

To this end, I provide counselling in Coquitlam for adults struggling with anxiety, depression,trauma, relationship issues, life transitions and more. Through the brain-wise therapy approach I offer, you will discover how to more easily move through overwhelm into states of calm and feeling better about yourself.

As you do so, relationships become more heart-centered and satisfying. A more inspired and happier you emerges.

You often forget there’s light at the end of the tunnel…I can help you find yours!

What are you waiting for?

Contact me for a complimentary phone consultation to chat about your concerns.  We’ll talk about the tough “stuff” bringing you to therapy and your yearnings for next steps.
