Welcome to Connect2Counselling

Having over thirty years experience, I offer compassionate, professional therapy.   The first step in looking for a therapist, is to check out credentials and experience.  Even more important is fit and a feeling of being understood.  At the front end of things, what I can say is that I am committed to working with you based on current best practices. I offer help with a wide range of counselling issues including trauma, attachment related concerns with children and adults, grief and loss, addictions, childhood issues, family concerns, and communication difficulties for couples, to name but a few.

 In-person sessions and on-line sessions are available
