I hated going to therapy. I was a young kid when our small family would take the weekly trip to the therapist. So many other things I wish I was doing during that time. Last thing I wanted was to sit in front of some strange lady being asked a bunch of questions.
"How does that make you feel?". I don't know! I'm just a kid.
Many years later I reversed the chairs. This time, I am the therapist.
Many of the tools and techniques I suggest in therapy are the exact same ones I have used during difficult times in my life. I am not an expert in your life... but rather a fellow traveler who have experienced much of the same challenges you have.
I have completed a leading program in Counselling and Mental Health. I have taken several courses and programs in couples therapy and relationships. I have an associate degree in Counselling, certificates in Prepare-Enrich for Couples, EFT for Couples and direct training by the founder of Relational Life Therapy. I have been voted Top 3 Marriage Counsellors in Hamilton, and a professional member of the CCPA.
I am married. I am HSP. And I am an empath.
That's my story. Looking forward to hearing yours!
