During my career in Mental Health and Addictions I have worked with many different populations, though my passion has been working with people experiencing anxiety, depression, self esteem issues, people in the LGBT2SQ community, and in recent years, a focus on working with Trans folks. Do you need help coping with anxiety, setting boundaries with those around you, or navigating changes in life situation? Are you coming out as LGBT2SQ and need support? Are you looking to transition and want a trans friendly therapist? Are you burned out at work and looking for someone to talk to? If so, I’d love to be of help.

Does therapy feel too formal or rigid for you? Are you looking for a connection with a therapist who feels warm, open and familiar? Hi! My name is Charlotte and I am the practice owner at Positive Space Consulting, a psychotherapist and a registered social worker. Being queer and disabled myself, I know how many of us feel disconnected from their families, coworkers, and communities. I know how exhausting it can be to navigate the medical system, school system and other oppressive systems and sometimes you just need to share space with someone else who gets it! Capitalism, patriarchy and white supremacy are exhausting!

I offer a safe, non-judgemental, client centered therapeutic space for individuals and couples. I believe that a journey towards healing requires empathy, encouragement and supportive facilitation as we often haven't had the opportunity to learn ways to cope with traumatic experiences and life related stressors. This can result in dysregulation and feelings of anxiety, depression and overwhelm in our day to day lives and relationships. Let's work together to explore and address your concerns in an open minded, anti-oppressive, trauma-informed, sex/body positive, LGBTQ + inclusive space.

I strive to offer an anti-oppressive, open-minded, sex-positive, and body-positive, LGBTQ + safe space.
Do you feel stuck? Alone? As we move through life, we will come up against difficulties that we struggle to carry on our own. They may show up at work, at home, in your relationship with others, or in your relationship with yourself. If you are grappling with difficult situations, with painful thoughts or feelings, you don’t have to navigate them alone. I offer a safe and confidential space where we will work together to uncover the tools and insights needed to, move through your pain, change your relationship with current problems, and reconnect to your own potential.

I am a registered social worker with over 15 years of work experience. I have helped people who experience issues such as: depression, anxiety, addiction, abuse, trauma, anger, LGBTQ -related issues, relationship issues, grief, and family conflict. My journey into social work began at age 14, when I lost my father to cancer. Because there were few supports available at the time, I felt alone and stuck. This prompted me to dedicate my life to assisting others during difficult times, and help them realize they are not alone.

I am constantly working to support an anti-oppressive, feminist, open-minded, sex-positive, body-positive, LGBTQ + space.
As we move through life, it's easy to get caught up taking care of everything and everyone at the exclusion of ourselves - yet caring for ourselves and our emotional well-being is the critical first step to having fulfilling and loving relationships. When we neglect ourselves, too often we are left feeling anxious, depressed, exhausted, or resentful. My passion is people. Listening, understanding and reflecting. Getting to the core of their needs and helping them glimpse courageously inside. With a dash of humour! Empowering!

Do you feel lonely in a crowd of people, feeling like you have had opportunity to make connections but have found it so hard in the moment to do anything but feel anxious or escape from the situation? Are you someone who feels like you’ve been placed in the middle of two seemingly opposing identities, gay and straight, racially white and black, cis and trans , social and isolated? Are you someone or are you a couple longing to build deeper connections to self and others and feeling like this is an impossibility? Are you finding yourself stuck in the same arguments, emotions and thoughts that make happiness feel so distance?

Sometimes, the things that have happened in our past can affect our daily lives significantly. Trauma can make survivors feel as if their past defines who they are and that it will always have a grip on them. Although traumatic events can cause lasting effects, there are ways to regain control over your life if you have experienced trauma or developed PTSD. Do you feel as though a traumatic experience has reshaped how you live your life? Seeking trauma therapy requires immense courage. I understand how difficult it can be to discuss trauma, which is why I provide a calm, non-judgemental space for you to begin the healing process.

I see people who are struggling with depression, anxiety, addictions, adjustment to change in their lives, relationship or family conflict, or the residual pain left from difficult childhoods or painful life events. My way of working as a therapist is to get to know you: your hopes, your talents, your problems and your unique way of thinking and expressing yourself. We then proceed with treatment based on who you are and what you need. The aim is to allow coping with your weaknesses to help you uncover your strengths, and your way forward.
