I partner with clients whose goals range from healing body shame and disordered eating to enhancing athletic performance or adjusting to living with chronic illness. Throughout the process, we explore new ways of relating with yourself, examine any obstacles along the way, and take manageable steps towards your goals. You get to decide how healing, recovery and growth will look like for you. I am simply a guide as you implement meaningful change and discover your own advocate, carer, and champion from within.

Other losses too; alienation or estrangement from family or friends can leave you alone, discouraged and rejected. Work disruption & job loss can have you questioning your value and rob you of purpose and meaning. Anxiety, stress, and depression are common and can keep you from enjoying your life. They can also be outcomes of grief, loss, or job loss.

We all experience difficulties with loss, relationships, past trauma, and other life stresses. In response to these challenges, sometimes our thoughts, emotions and actions lead to anxiety, depression and other ineffective ways of coping. I have over 30 years of clinical experience working with substance use, mental health issues and other difficulties. When someone reaches out for support, they demonstrate great determination, hopefulness and personal courage to share in their private concerns. Making changes can involve focusing on personal values; learning and practicing new coping strategies and drawing on personal strengths.

Elders (65+) (65+, Seniors) Counsellors
The counsellors listed here have identified their interest in elder therapy in L1N or help for L1N elderly people in therapy. Counsellors who work with elders (for instance, elderly parents, elderly women or even elderly abuse) handle a broad range of issues especially as they relate to caring for the elderly and homes for the elderly in L1N. Elderly depression is a common problem that can be helped by therapy for elderly people. Psychiatrists who work with the elderly are sometimes referred to as L1N geriatric psychiatrists or geropsychiatrists.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in L1N are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in L1N you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in L1N and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in L1N or family therapy in L1N.
