Currently accepting new clients! Whether you are experiencing symptoms of stress, depression, anxiety, grief, or are going through a difficult transition, there are strategies out there that can help you.
I provide a person-centered, strength-based approach within my sessions. As each individual is unique in their own way I don’t practice with a “one size fits all” approach when it comes to therapeutic modalities. I will start from where you are at and work collaboratively with you to see which skills/strategies will best fit your goals/needs.
Starting with a counsellor for the first time can be intimidating. If you allow me to, I will provide a warm, welcoming and non-judgemental space to discuss and work towards your goals with you. To ensure I am the right fit for you, I offer a free 15 minute virtual (phone or video) consultation. To book a consultation you can send me an email.
