Open Hearted Counselling Services in the Comox Valley and Campbell River

I am a sole practitioner with offices in both the Comox Valley and Campbell River providing counselling services for indviduals, couples and families. I pride myself in creating a sense of comfort, understanding and openness. I appreciate how difficult it must be for someone to come in for the first session and begin discussing personal issues that trouble them. I believe that both my personal and professional work experience renders me relatable to most and contributes to the creation of a relationship based on collaboration with accountability. In other words, I’m respectfully supportive and will provide gentle nudges to assist clients recognize when they might feel helpless or discouraged. I will then guide them to the doable steps towards finding a solution or achieving a particular goal.
