Welcome! As a Counselling Psychologist, my goal is to help you uncover your capacities, strengths, and potential so you are better able to lead a more fulfilled life. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve the challenges you are facing right now.
Unfortunately, as of this time (6 Jun 2016), I am faced with having to take an unplanned medical leave having an uncertain return date.
In choosing and utilizing the most appropriate therapy approaches and techniques, we will explore behaviour patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more satisfying and meaningful life. Most importantly, we will work together to empower you to move in more fulfilling, helpful, and growthful directions.
My work with individuals of all ages, couples, and families, has particularly focused on such issues as:
- Transitions - personal, relationships, work
Depression, Anxiety, and Stress Management
- Relationship & Communication challenges
- Grief and loss
- Work and Career - directions, challenges, and moves
- Acculturation and cross-cultural adjusting in work, family, and social relationships
- Life satisfaction & exploring personal meaning and direction
- Spiritual quests and questions
- Men’s issues
- GLBTQ related concerns - personal, relational, vocational
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation, or you're just ready to discover and move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
Please call or email me to arrange for an optional fee-free telephone consultation of 15 minutes to explore the best options for you at this time.
The location where I primarily see clients is at Suite 825 - 906 12th Ave SW - (the building, Dominion Place, is located just across the street from Safeway, on the corner of 12 Ave. SW and 8th St. SW - the entrance is on 12th Ave.). This is a very convenient and central location and a short walk from C-train stops! I also am available to see clients in the SW of Calgary in Shawnessy.
I also provide consulting services to both individuals and groups - facilitating communication, identifying challenges, clarifying goals, discovering and creating new parths forward.
Fuller offering of on-line counselling (also know as internet counselling or cyber-counselling) is being planned for introduction in the near future. Cyber-counselling is not appropriate for everyone, or for all issues or concerns. Shortly a Cyber-counselling page will be added to this website describing what will be offered and outlining its availability, limitations, and identifying particular confidentiality issues and concerns. Stay tuned for more information!
Still wondering if it would be helpful to make an appointment or even whether to see a psychologist or not? This information from the Canadian Psychological Association may be helpful!
