Our humanity is shared in that we all experience stress, pain, and conflicts in our lives. Through small shifts, our relationships with others and ourselves can improve when we align our inner experience, thoughts, and behaviours with our authentic self. I like to approach therapy by helping you uncover the blocks that are keeping you from living as the absolute best version of yourself.

Wondering why you may be feeling aimless, overwhelmed, empty or unfulfilled? Usually, this means there's something deeper going on inside us. Oftentimes, we have difficulty giving those feelings a voice but know deep down on some level, we may need to in order to enhance our well-being, meet our goals, and be more loving, vibrant and free. To make a meaningful inward discovery we must unearth how our patterns, interactions, relationships, emotions, and thoughts live and breathe in our everyday lives. Strength, clarity and power are rooted within your authentic self and may hold the answers you are seeking. Let's get there together!

Relationships are hard. When things aren't going well, there's nothing more difficult than trying to deal with another person, especially someone you love. It can leave you feeling overwhelmed, confused, heartbroken and alone. It can get you questioning everything you ever thought was real about your relationship and wonder how you'll ever get things right side up again. Don't give up. I know it's not easy, but it can get better.

Narrative Counsellors
Narrative Therapy uses the client's storytelling to indicate the way they construct meaning in their lives, rather than focusing on how they communicate their problem behaviors. L1N Narrative Therapy embraces the idea that stories actually shape our behaviors and our lives and that we become the stories we tell about ourselves. There are helpful narratives we can choose to embrace as well as unhelpful ones. Although it may sound obvious, the power of storytelling is to elevate the client--who is the authority of their narrative--rather than the therapist, as expert. Check these therapists for find Narrative Therapy in L1N.

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