***NOW ACCEPTING CLIENTS FOR PHONE/VIDEO*** When our thoughts get the better of us and we feel overwhelmed, I believe there is always hope to reach the peace for which we all yearn. Through psychotherapy, I support clients struggling with anxiety, self-doubt, identity, and relationships. We all have times when we aren’t sure where we stand in our lives and with others, so I offer a safe and welcoming space where clients can express and find themselves. We are complex individuals with our own unique stories made up of our experiences. Therapy is an empowering space where we can explore these without judgment.
Unravelling your emotions and experiences may seem daunting but I’m here to support you through it. I offer a calm, supportive, and humour-filled space to look through both past and present experiences. I use a strength-based model to help you discover what you need to be, and who you want to be.
If you’d like to learn more about how therapy works and how I can support you, please feel free to reach out to me. Check out my website to book a session or a free 15 minute consultation to get us started. You can also email me or give me a phone call. Even if you and I are not the right fit, I would be happy to help you find the right therapist for you.
