Personal Counselling in Winnipeg

     Since 2005, I have been serving my clientele in private practice. My approach to therapy is intuitive, collaborative and disruptive. I believe helping is as much art as science. Good therapy emerges from forging a relationship of trust; identifying sources of distress, and establishing methods of meaningful change.
