With years of experience, I provide individual counselling to youth, young adults, and adults experiencing intrapersonal challenges such as feelings of anxiety, low mood/depression, low self-worth, difficult life transitions, grief and loss, as well as interpersonal challenges with friends, family, partners, and peers. Using a supportive, exploratory, client-centered approach I support and guide the individual in exploring and connecting to their experiences and emotions in a safe space with a focus on positive and meaningful change.
I recognize every client as the expert of their own experiences and the importance of tailoring therapy to each individual’s unique needs and pace. I empower each client to strengthen their relationship with themself, to identify and mobilize their strengths and supports, and to develop new ways of managing and coping with life’s challenges.
I am committed to providing a safe, non-judgmental, inclusive and strength-based environment for my clients. I offer a FREE 15 minute phone consultation. To request a consultation or if you would like to learn more, please e-mail me directly or visit the Straight Up Health website. I look forward to hearing from you and being a part of your journey!
