Pastoral Counselling

with a focus on

Marital Conflict / Separation and Divorce 


Sometimes you simply need a safe place to talk.

I provide a listening ear, non-judgmental feedback about the difficulties you are experiencing, and an openness to talk about your relationship with God.


I have 19 years of experience of ministry in parishes, hospitals, and the University.  I also have years of formation including a Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies, training in Clinical Pastoral Education, Mental Health First Aid and Mediation. 

My husband and I have been married for twenty-six years, raised three sons, experienced the loss of our parents, and we have overcome significant health and financial challenges.  We enjoy a rewarding relationship with our faith community and have a love of the arts.

These are some of the difficulties people have brought to the Pastoral Counselling I offer:

  • Difficulties forgiving past hurts
  • The grief of separation and divorce
  • Loneliness
  • Anger and resentments about unfair treatment
  • Feelings of despair
  • Feeling unheard
  • Uncertainty about God’s compassion
  • Difficulty praying
  • Sexual difficulties
  • Feelings of guilt and shame
  • Worry about children’s behaviour
  • Confusion

Olive Branch Marriage & Family Ministry is located at Queen’s House Retreat and Renewal Centre.

$85.00 per hour.

Session can be held on Zoom.

No one will be turned away for financial reasons.
