Hello and welcome to my website! I am a Master Level Registered Social Worker with a full time private practice in Northwest London Ontario. I work with individuals ages 12 and older as well as couples and am committed to helping clients develop healthier lives with healthier relationships.
You may feel encouraged to know that everyone needs help navigating life's many challenges. Often help simply comes through friends and family, but there are times when the support of a professional is the better choice. Professional counselling can help you see and understand your problems more comprehensively. It provides a safe space in which you are able to talk things through with someone professionally trained to help you find your solutions -- solutions that are right for you and your life.
My education and training help me listen in a non-judgmental manner, ask questions that can serve to shed more light on the problem at hand, and identify the solutions that can work for you. Often these solutions require learning new ways of thinking and behaving which is part of the counselling process. Counselling is work but it is not about spinning your wheels. Rather, it is about being guided and supported in working on the right thing in the right way as you address your challenges constructively and productively.
