Feeling "stuck", disconnected, or "not normal"? Amidst the complexities of life, it's common to feel discouraged, overwhelmed or a sense of not fitting in. Many people struggle with their mental health without seeking help, and this struggle may lead to addiction, anxiety, depression, poor relationships or low self-worth. The journey to overcome these struggles begins with acknowledging the need for support and continues with learning how to understand and process our emotions. As I am a certified music therapist, we also have the option of using your preferred music as an avenue to deepen our work together.
As an experienced counsellor specializing in addictions and a range of mental health issues, I am here to accompany on your journey towards change. Together, we will uncover the tools and insights needed for growth. We can use traditional talk therapy, or get creative with evidence based music therapy techniques. Your path to getting "unstuck" starts here.
I see counselling as starting with a strong connection between you and me. This connection is the start of growth and healing. I provide a comfortable space where you can explore your thoughts, feelings, and experiences without fear of judgement. I invite you to reach out for a no-obligation 15-minute phone session to see if it's a good fit for you.
