The most important thing to me as a therapist is to be helpful to you. I will have some ideas about that, but I will also look to you for ideas. I will listen closely, try to understand you and your life from your perspective. I’ll ask questions and may offer alternative ways of looking at things. We may also plan for you to do things in your life outside the office, in between the times we meet, and this may involve trying do things differently, and doing things that are difficult. Sometimes therapy is about change, and sometimes it may be about accepting what has changed. We'll figure out together what therapy means for you.

I provide holistic psychotherapy and wellness counselling to individuals, couples and families. I recognize that working through difficult life circumstances and challenging relationships can be stressful and isolating, resulting in feelings of anxiety, low mood, poor coping skills or a general sense of being stuck in a cycle of unhealthy patterns. To move forward in our lives, it’s helpful to honor our experiences, accept that deeper emotions are appropriate in certain situations and build trust in ourselves to know the difference.

Welcome! My name is Tracy and I want to first and foremost acknowledge this important step you are taking for your mental well being. Admitting to yourself that you need outside support is not an easy task. I can appreciate how hard it must be to decide where you can go to confide in someone. I want you to know that building a relationship is of utmost importance to me. I want you to feel you have found a safe place where your innermost thoughts and feelings are heard without judgement.

Feeling overwhelmed these days? Many of us are walking around stuck in a state of fight, flight, or freeze and we may not even be aware. The latest research says that the three ways we can find calm are: connection, safety, and being in the present moment. My goal as a therapist is to provide a space that makes these conditions possible. By engaging with our emotions, our mind, and our body in a safe and integrated way, we can move past "the stuckness" and find hope in places that we didn't think were there.

Are you looking for a practical, individualised and creative approach to tackling mental health difficulties for you or your child? Perhaps you have not found traditional talking therapies a good fit for you. Perhaps your teen needs support to break cycles of anxiety or depression. Perhaps your child has Autism or ADHD and struggles with their behaviour, attention, emotions or sensory processing. You might be looking for parenting support. You may want to incorporate nature, arts or other meaningful activity into your therapy journey. One size does not fit all. Imagine what change looks like for you.

My counselling approach is built on something called unconditional positive regard. I am a non-judgemental listener who likes to use kindness, support and sometimes even humour to build relationships with my clients. I use a wide range of counselling practices depending on client needs. My clients are anyone who is wrestling with any aspect of their life and would like to solve the issues contributing to it. I will work with you to identify specific problems and issues and then find the best counselling theory and practice to help you solve your issues. My specialty has been culture & identity.

I enjoy working with couples and individuals to address relationships issues, explore what is happening and to find a way forward. Often there are multiple issues going on at once and I can assist clients in prioritizing goals and identifying preferred ways of being in all areas of their lives. We can get caught up in "the problem story of self" and can't see all the other storylines we are living. I enjoy assisting clients in recognizing the other "stories of self" and finding ways to enhance these in their day to day lives. Most clients want to feel well, at peace, and experience love and joy.

I help people develop solutions to problems and challenges that get in the way of living well. Clients may use terms like depression, anxiety, trauma, and stress, e.g., to describe the challenges bringing them to therapy. Regardless of the challenges, problems, or difficulties you are experiencing, you have potential to live well, and I am able to help.

Hello..One of my areas of interest is working with people who have survived sexual abuse or personal trauma. Initially, I build rapport and a trusting relationship with you. One of our first tasks usually involves identifying your strengths and what’s important to you; these are major components of allowing successful trauma processing and resolution to occur. Another area of interest for me is working with adolescents. Having once been a teen in need of additional support, I am able to empathize and quickly connect with young people. In my work with youth some topics include anxiety, self-harm, self-esteem, and anger management.

If you feel sad, blue anxious or depressed, no purpose, I can help. I work with clients to achieve inner peace, optimal health, true joy, & lasting success in their personal and professional lives. Most of them feel stressed out, anxious, sad, or blue, can't get stuff done, are close to burnout, and are secretly (or openly) struggling with their own mental and physical health. Some also want to get off some medications and don't know how to do it so they don't suffer awful withdrawal symptoms. Maybe they are also struggling with memory issues, weight issues, hormonal issues, and other issues affecting their brain and mental health.

In my sessions, I want clients to feel truly listened to. Therapy, in my view, is a space for a client to experience empathetic and genuine attention which may be rarely found in everyday life. With this kind of attention, people can face problems and develop strengths much more easily than on their own. Ultimately, my goal is to help people get to the point at which they can manage their mental health without me, by using the tools and skills we develop during our sessions.

How many people are willing to understand the true feelings in a person's heart? I believe it is easy to define psychological illness, but it is very hard to find out a person's true feelings. This is the biggest challenge for one’s career. With that in mind, I work to understand all feelings and help all my clients learn to work through their difficulties to gradually become internally independent until they no longer need me.

I am a non-binary and queer registered social worker who works with children, youth, adults, families and seniors. Drawing from multiple therapeutic frameworks, I offer clients a counselling practice that is non-judgemental, socially-minded, stigma-free, anti-oppressive and anti-racist, sex-positive, and supportive of those who use substances. I work with people who identify as monogamous, non-monogamous, polyamorous, and who are engaged with other non-traditional relationship forms. I take a collaborative approach to my counselling and aim to meet the client where they are at.
