I offer counselling to adults, families and children at the C'est La Vie Wellness clinic in Bronte, Oakville. As a key member of the C'est La Vie Wellness team, I am committed to offering my clients a non-judgemental, warm and welcoming environment while working collaboratively with Naturopathic Doctors, Holistic Nutritionists, Life Coaches and more. I support my clients with concrete tools and coping strategies to achieve their goals and support them through personal challenges.
My counselling focus is based on a holistic approach which translates to our therapeutic relationship being seen through the lens of these best practices: behavioural (inspired by CBT), mindfulness (MBCT), collaborative proactive solutions (CPS), solution-focused, narrative and of course, lots of psychoeducation to empower and support my clients.
I am a bilingual counsellor and provide counselling services in both French and English. Puisque je suis francophone, je suis en mesure de travailler avec les enfants et les familles francophones. You can book your initial phone consult (free, 15mins) here: cestlaviewellness.ca/mental-health-counselling/ or by emailing me through Psychology Today.
