My focus is to support you in implementing changes to improve your quality of life by using scientifically researched and validated interventions. I believe that knowledge is power. My goal is to help you gain an understanding of why you are feeling the way you are and more importantly what you can do to improve your mental health. I specialize in helping you overcome current life challenges and past events that are holding you back from experiencing relationships and life fully. As a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, I have seen the impact that adverse events can have on our mental wellbeing.
I am particularly interested in looking at how nutrition can be used to improve mood and brain health, and how to reconstruct neural pathways disrupted by stress and trauma. I look at incorporating treatments that offer a long-term solution. This includes an integrative approach that incorporates principles of neuroscience, physiology, and psychology.
My training includes a wide range of therapies and neuro-physiological interventions. I have over 20 years of experience that spans business consulting, conflict resolution, and counselling. However, my approach is also guided by my personal experiences of trauma, loss, and life challenges. I have experienced counsellors that have changed my life and others that have left me feeling stuck.
It is this point of reference that guides my approach. My focus is to help you achieve lasting change. Life challenges are outside of our control, how we handle them is within our control. Mental wellbeing is not just about overcoming crisis, it is foundational to overall health and fulfilment.
