Currently limited space for new clients. Please email to inquire. Services bilingues. Convenient, virtual options for individuals, couples, youth, rural residents. Insurance covered. In addition to common concerns like stress, anxiety, and depression, I have experience with health crisis, grief, life change, PTSD, trauma, burnout, eating/body issues, autism/ADHD. You can rebuild, thrive, and find joy again. I take a whole-person and strengths-based approach.
My psychotherapy training is enhanced by my PhD in resilience, well-being and Green Care (nature/animal based), and years of experience in sport and wellness prior to becoming a therapist in the 2nd half of life. I have 5 years of mental health experience in hospital and clinical practice, registering as a Psychotherapist since 2019.
Based on fit, we can schedule your initial session, or refer you to another suitable colleague. Why not connect today? www.moveyourmind.ca
