Down to earth. Grounded approach.
Usable skills to help now.
I am a seasoned counsellor with a passion for helping others, a proud mother, and an active partner on our dairy farm in Lennox and Addington County.
My down-to-earth grounded personality, and outlook will encourage you to nurture personal growth and balance in a confidential, non-judgmental space.
My approach is honest and sincere. I am here to support people in the rural and agricultural community who seek change and growth. I understand the unique financial, family, and environmental pressures impacting your life. We work towards finding solutions, using steps that are realistic and manageable, that best fit your lifestyle.
Over the past 14 years I’ve provided counselling services and workshops in education, healthcare, and social services settings. I possess a BAA in Behavioural Psychology, and am an experienced counsellor registered with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). I have worked with a diverse population in the addictions and mental health sector for many years. I strive to support, guide and aid those who are struggling with personal issues. I am very aware that it can be difficult to discuss these issues but also recognize the courage you show just by reading this site
I’m ready to help you learn, strengthen and apply usable skills and focus on rebuilding a grounded, balanced self.
