I cultivate meaningful relationships …….


I am a Registered Professional Counsellor who works with guiding people through depression, anxiety, self-esteem, self-confidence, co-dependency and other issues that keep you from living a life that is fulfilling.

If there is trauma from past or current abuse, your being bullied or perpetrating it, have addictions, suffer domestic violence, and more …. I can help you reach into those deeper issues that can often stem from childhood. It can lead us into maladaptive behaviours and patterns that often keep us stuck and wondering why we find ourselves back in similar situations.

I will give you strategies that help you to examine your life while learning skills that can help you be successful and fulfilled. Choosing partners and friendships that are healthy, while working through core and limiting beliefs. The patterns and learned behaviours will become a thing of the past.

My NEW Book on Amazon


I am writing to let you know that I am now a Best Selling Author on Amazon, and excited to share with you my book “Steps to Loving You, Creating Positive Changes”.     Steps to Loving You, is about a journey we are meant to take towards loving self.    If we don’t take the time to resolve our issues, we will remain stuck and repeat the same patterns while falling short of our dreams.

This book is designed to help women and girls that may have been bullied, have no voice, show a lack of confidence, low self-esteem, feel abandoned, homeless, frustrated, angry and bitter.    It is also for those who need to learn to love themselves first, because without focussing on self, we can never have the fulfilling and healthy relationships we all deserve.

I will be posting different blogs in the coming months pertaining to some of the content in my book, which is actually a counselling workbook.    At the end of each chapter there are questions you can answer, that will begin your journey of hope.   One that leaves you fulfilled and wanting more of what you need.

It will help you recognize patterns, give you tools to make changes, discover your gifts/talents, getting to the root of your beliefs, define who you are, create boundaries that work, understand communication styles, find positive outcomes to difficult relationships, loving self/care/respect of self and others, discover your voice, build healthy relationships, overcome codependency, define what makes you unique and the chance for a free strategy call with myself.

The link is Steps to Loving You, Creating Positive Changes.     I worked hard on this book, that has taken me over a year to complete.    If you order a copy of my book, please leave a review!

My First Radio Interview


I just wanted to let all my followers know that I will be a guest on a radio show this coming Wednesday, March 2nd at 2:00 pm PST.    Rosemarie Barnes is the Maverick Voice who is also an inspirational speaker, classically trained singer, choir and band director, writer, and entrepreneur.

She is the hostess of a new show which started February 2, 2016, and is doing remarkably well.    Her website is Confident Stages    Her radio show called “Off the Coast”, can be found at Off the Coast Off The Coast which can be heard every Wednesday at 2:00 pm PST.

I am excited to be her guest and she even called me inimitable!     I think we are all unique in our own special way.   Once a broadcaster myself, I now find myself on the other side of the seat.     I hope you can all tune in!

The Rose


One of the most treasured flowers among people is The Rose!   Rose is a symbol used to show affection towards friends, lovers, parents or a new friend.    Each color representing a different meaning that makes you think twice before giving.  One doesn’t want to give the wrong impression.   So the importance of selection is key!

I have only received flowers three times in my life.   Once when I was in high school, some fellow decided he wanted to make a nice gesture to all the women in our youth group so he sent a poinsetta.    Another was some rather wilted flowers a boyfriend at the time gave me, when I was about 17.   And then about 8 years ago, I remember getting off the ferry to be greeted by a man that was a blind date.   I thought he was okay, and that the gesture of holding a yellow rose was sweet.    I am not a woman that has been adorned with many bouquets of flowers, by great men wanting to gain my affection.    So I accepted this gesture as nothing more than a friendship.    Something that wouldn’t last, and it didn’t!

My sister in law perhaps was right, I always seem to end up with the short end of the stick.   I never looked at it that way before, rather than a woman who never understood why men were so blind; to the wonderful woman standing before them.   Then again, they just weren’t the right men.   I don’t deprive myself of enjoying roses, because I have no relationship.  Rather I plant them in large pots on my patio, outside my doorstep.   A lovely yellow climbing rose, next to another favorite.   I love honeysuckle, a favorite of butterflies and hummingbirds for its sweet nectar.

For people that are into giving flowers, remember that Yellow is the color of friendship, joy and caring.   Red is the color of love and enduring passion, conveying respect.   I love the fragrance of the pink one’s they are the most fragrant, and leaves a lovely scent along the pathway to my house.   Pink represents, gentleness, femininity and elegance.   I wrote a poem about the rose, and wanted to share it with all of you.   I hope you enjoy!

A Rose!

Shy, yet content in my own way.

Misunderstood, because I find myself stuck among thorns.

A bud beginning to blossom, on a stem that shows no growth.

Nurtured by the water that now feeds my roots.

Planted by the kindness of the hands, that love all that there is about me.

Fostered by pure thought and the intention to do no harm!

I am tended by those hands that have weathered many a storm.

Yet carried on from a passion that moves them forward in time.

I am a scent that lingers on a warm summer night.

Enticing lovers as they gaze into each others eyes.

Warmed by the gift that they share.

A bouquet of tender moments that are timeless melodies,

of two hearts beating at the same time!
