Your Life May Look Something Like This:

  • You feel a deep weight or sadness that doesn’t go away or if it does it always comes back. It holds you back from being the person you want to be – and having the life you’ve always wanted.
  • You’re always feeling stressed out and worried about everything. Your constant analysing everything leads to frequent paralysis. You become too afraid to do things that you’d really like to do. You’re constantly stuck in “What if” land. Worried about what if this happens and what if that happens. You’ve lost your spontaneity and your spark for life!
  • You have low self-esteem and you wonder why everyone else is doing better than you? You can’t seem to get ahead…
  • Your relationship is driving you crazy and you are totally frustrated! You feel like you’re doing all the work and they are getting all the benefits!
  • Or possibly you are trying to recover from a trauma or sexual assault. Or you have been diagnosed with PTSD. But you just can’t seem to get over it!

It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way…

I Know You Don’t Feel Very Confident That Things Can Be Different

You probably know at least some of the things you need to do to be happier, but you’ve tried a hundred times to get what you want and it never works – or it works for a while and then it falls apart again. What I can show you is how to make it last!  We’ll make an exciting plan. Next we’ll discover the roadblocks or barriers that keep getting you stuck and learn some practical tools to either avoid these painful obstacles or work through them. You will receive a greater understanding of your patterns and the “Whys”. This will help increase your self-confidence and your motivation. You’ll finally feel hopeful again…

Through counselling you can:

Feel that you are totally supported and validated

Find clarity around your issues

Improve your mood

Learn how to set boundaries, improve your communication,
and express your anger in a healthy way

Increase your self-esteem

Be yourself again
And regain your Self-Respect…

You don’t have to go through the pain alone …

I Can Help!

I am a caring, highly skilled, professional psychotherapist. I provide therapy, counselling and support to men and women in my South Surrey Office. I serve individuals from the Lower Mainland, including the White Rock, Surrey, Delta and Langley area. I provide short term or long term counselling. The choice is yours…


I am passionate about my work! I love to help individuals move from just barely getting by in life, living from day to day, and glad when another day is over. To me that’s just Surviving in life. My goal as a counsellor is to help you move to where you can’t wait to get up in the morning because you’re so excited about the new day. You have accomplishments that you are proud of and many ideas for tomorrow. Your relationships are satisfying and instead of just Surviving, your life is full and rich, you are actually Thriving in your life!

Through my many years of experience, I provide my clients with the warmth and compassion they need to safely explore their issues, as well as the practical tools that will improve their lives.


Together we can too…

From Mary Ann, I learned that assertive positive responses are immensely powerful tools to help cope, thrive and present the most positive outcome possible. Mary Ann taught me that life and people in it can purposefully subject you to very stressful and negative situations. She helped me identify that there are no controls over other people’s behaviour. But you have full control of your responses and how you let other people’s behaviours affect your emotions. She taught me to be more aware of my emotional response and gave me tools of empowerment…My life has changed for the better after learning these tools.

Thank you,


Counselling can help you move ~

From Surviving to Thriving!!!
