One of the bravest things you can do is allow yourself to be vulnerable and begin your own story. I can promise you; I understand that taking this step is not easy and intimidating - I hope that together, we can take those deep breaths and begin (or continue) this journey together. I aim to support you as we work through the many obstacles that life may place in front of you so that you can reach your goals while developing and enhancing skills to navigate life.

Reaching out to start therapy can be anxiety-provoking. It's important to me that you feel comfortable in session and we build a trusting relationship as it's the foundation of therapeutic success. My aim is to help you understand why you feel or behave in the ways that you do and find helpful coping strategies to live a more meaningful life. Therapy goals are based on your priorities and values. In sessions, we will discuss how your feelings, thoughts, trauma or current stressors are impacting your life. I incorporate approaches such as mindfulness, self-compassion, regulation and value-based actions to work towards your goals.

In developing a safe and respectful environment, I strive to help clients feel comfortable to start the journey of recovery from addiction, anxiety, depression, PTSD, and/or anger. I understand the journey of recovery from substance use disorders is not easy but I am here to support clients towards their goals. I also understand life transitions of individuals, especially athletes and how mental health is a large component of an athlete's identity.

Thank you for visiting my profile. I have a Masters Degree in Social Work and nearly 20 years experience offering therapy to individuals, couples and families. Reaching out for therapy can be difficult. It can create feelings of anxiety or shame, or a fear of being misunderstood or judged. I believe that therapy should be a non-judgmental, collaborative experience, where you can comfortably uncover and confront the obstacles preventing you from living the life you deserve. My goal is to provide a non- judgmental, compassionate, trauma-informed, queer positive, gender affirming, respectful space that is inclusive to all.

Hello, thank you for taking the time to look for the right Counsellor- ME! LOL! Finding a Counsellor who is warm, kind, humorous and inviting will help you open up. We can talk about whatever is troubling you and stealing peace in your life. We can find solutions, a plan and goals in helping you move forward or recover. Sometimes clients have mental illness, relationship or personal problems that are stopping them from leading the best life possible. My work is to help you find out what the problem is and to find out what supports and strengths you already have and used in the past. Together we will explore solutions.

Becoming a therapist has been an intentional journey that is the direct result of a desire to collaboratively facilitate healing in myself and others. It is difficult to be in the world right now and the impending fear and anxiety around us can contribute to feelings of overwhelm and a sense of disconnect from ourselves and others. This might have us feeling hopeless, isolated or 'stuck'. Our work together will foster the resilience and self-compassion needed to weather these storms and to recognize and celebrate the wisdom found in the struggle.

I feel people need to communicate with each other more often. We need to talk in a non-judgmental environment and realize that it's ok to ask for help. I will try to help anyone who wants to make positive changes in their life. Supporting those with addictions is a particular interest.

It can feel so scary and isolating to face all the challenges life throws at you, but you don’t have to face them alone anymore. I understand how heavy life can feel at times and how vulnerable it is to reach out for help. Whether this is your first time reaching out for support or your tenth, please take the time to admire your strength. You deserve a space where you can feel validated, seen and heard. Let's work together to lighten the load you've been carrying for so long and determine what a meaningful life looks like for you.

Teresa is an empathic, kind, and nonjudgmental counsellor who is passionate about helping individuals overcome their struggles with mental health, and cultivate the self-compassion needed to heal from past traumas. Feelings of stress and anxiety, depression, eating disorders, addiction, and relationship difficulties have feelings of shame and self-criticism at their core. Directing compassion toward ourselves can allow us to feel safe and accepted, and give us the caring motivation to work through our suffering in helpful ways.

Have you ever driven home from work and ended up in the drive way with no idea how you got there? Thinking the same thoughts over and over and not been able to get to sleep? Reacted by saying things you wish you hadn’t? Yep, we’ve all been there. Through learning evidence-based mindfulness exercises, my clients learn how to re-wire their brains, change their inner dialogue, and create more space in their lives. Mindfulness training can be therapeutic, however it differs from therapy; we learn how to let go of our usual thinking, story-telling, and analyzing modes by exploring what is actually here right now.

Life has its ups and downs. Often we can find ways to cope, and even grow, riding out those waves. But most of us also have times when it all just seems too much; we cannot see a clear path ahead. That's when having the support of someone who listens without judgement and is fully present can be immensely helpful. That is the essence my counselling approach. My aim, in the time we spend together, is to help you discover and reconnect with your inner resources, as well as gain some new tools and create a viable plan to help you move from simply surviving to thriving.
