Supporting and guiding you through challenging times

It is also a step towards making a difference that makes the difference. Everyone has the battle to fight and hurdle to overcome at some point. That’s why I want you to know that it is never too late to make a change and to start living the life you’ve always wished.

I have devoted my counseling practice to providing a compassionate, nurturing, and safe environment. At the Edmonton Counselling Services, I can help you to understand insight into your thoughts & behavior so that you can live an enjoyable life.
Philosophy of Care
Your mind affects your body, and you are unique: these truths form the foundation of mind-body therapy. I believe that effective therapy treats the whole person – body, mind & spirit. As an eager listener with a calm disposition, I strive to create transparency and trust in his relationships with every client. I enlist their contribution in creating treatment plans to ease their innate healing abilities. My goal is to fully support clients as they move toward fulfillment, balance, and increased vitality in their daily lives.

Addiction, Mental Health, and Relationship counselling
I can help you using scientifically-based tools to live a more joyful life.
The reasons individuals seek individual counselling are as different the individuals themselves. For example, some people may be going through a difficult situation or time in their life. Such as locations, transitioning jobs, roles or relationships, in life can lead to mental health issues such as anxiety, stress, or depression. Therefore, It may be beneficial to take counseling to process through all the difficulties that are occurring.
Each person has a unique set of needs. Therefore, I offer all of my clients a customized step-by-step plan to navigate their path to well being. Some of the areas, I help with Anger Management, anxiety, worries, fears, and panic, stress, depression or unexplained sadness. Moreover, personal growth, the difficulty with life transitions, family or marital concerns, coping with emotionally destructive relationships. I look forward to working with you and helping you realize your individual and relationship potential.
Couples / Marriage Counselling can be an excellent way to improve and strengthen your relationship. For this purpose, no matter if you are starting a new relationship or you is in living together for decades. You will gain new skills to strengthen yourelationship and manage conflict better. Therefore, I work with all types of couples such as dating couples, those considering taking a relationship to the next level and those who have been together for years. Above all, relationship counseling helps in recognizing and changing destructive behaviors for a better relationship.
The primary goal in couple’s counseling is to study the heart issues that either help or hinder the couple’s relationship. Also, to implement new approaches for remaining connected in a better way, resulting in a more gratifying relationship. We will work together to understand the root cause of your problems and address those issues.
