Sometimes our life can feel overwhelming, and change can feel impossible. Our feelings can impact areas of our life that can make us experience stress, feeling low, problems in relationships, or self-esteem concerns. It can be difficult to understand what and why you feel the way you do, and more importantly, how you can move forward. Your feelings are not random, but you might not like how you react in situations, so understanding why and incorporating manageable skills to change can help you be the ideal you. You know who you want to be, but feel stuck in your ways - unable to see a way through or around.

Having a safe space to process our emotions and thoughts is an important part of our growth, healing, and overall wellbeing. If you are struggling with anxiety, trauma, life changes, relationship issues, self-esteem or family challenges, I would be happy to offer you an opportunity to explore your experiences, with no judgement. We can set therapeutic goals together then work collaboratively to meet them. In my practice, I enjoy teaching my clients skills that they can use to manage their day-to-day challenges. Together we can goal set and solution build!

As a Portuguese person raised in Canada, I can understand the complexities of being raised with intersecting identities and the various issues that it brings. Portuguese culture and Canadian culture are very different, and navigating both can feel suffocating. In situations involving relationships, sex, sexuality and body the contrasts can be pretty extreme. Both through education, and being able to have my own lived experiences, I have learned how to manage these very complex intersection of myself.

Hello everyone. My name is Cathy and I have been working in the mental health sector for over 25 years. I am client centered and believe that the therapeutic relationship needs to be based on trust, respect, and connection. My therapeutic style is rooted in cognitive behavioral therapy as I believe our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors are interconnected. Most of my clients are going through a transition in life or feel 'stuck' or they feel that they are in crisis and need support to process and plan next steps. My clients state that my personal style is practical, empathetic, and solution focused.

What if you were offered practical tools to face your challenges? This is the space that I can create for you. I will use authenticity, respect, curiosity and kindness to help you confront and explore your challenges. I will help you build tailored strategies to confidently meet your goals.

Hi! Thanks for visiting. Maybe it’s like you’re about to drown in overwhelm, and you wish you could catch your breath. Maybe that out-of-control urge exploded again, and you wish you could find that kind of relief without all the mess afterward. Maybe it exploded in one or more of your relationships, and you don’t know what to do, but you feel unspeakably lost or lonely about it. Maybe at times you’ve given up on life being worth living. Maybe other times you do everything you can think of to survive. Or maybe it’s your teen or someone else you love who’s going through things like this, and you need support. I’d love to help.
