“Life is a complex matter.” — Walt Disney

Sometimes it becomes too complex — overwhelming — and we find ourselves unable to cope and looking for help.

If problems are engulfing you, We may be able to help you develop the understanding and skills to manage and overcome them.

The Covid-19 / Coronavirus issue causes distress and anxiety for many. The elevated stress and tension of this challenging time may exacerbate other current life issues. We understand and offer you confidential video or phone sessions to ensure your safety and effective therapy.

Some clients request shorter session to help reduce current level of distress. We now offer 30 min sessions at half the cost – $60 plus GST.
