Therapy makes life better.
“Career Counselling” Self doubt stifles your motivation, making you feel like an imposter in your career. You question your abilities to achieve goals. You avoid confrontation out of fear you will be disliked. You compare yourself with other colleagues. You overextend yourself hoping it will be rewarded. You are overwhelmed with having to meet key performance indicators. Your fear of failure prevents you from moving forward on projects. You feel discouraged to apply for promotions. Lacking self confidence, you wonder why you are experiencing a lag in your career and believe no one understands what you are going through.

As a counsellor with 15 years experience, I offer compassionate and non-judgemental counselling to those dealing with a number of life issues, including counselling for life transitions, those dealing with addiction and mental health concerns, and caretakers suffering from compassion fatigue.
Stress and anxiety are a daily part of many people's lives. After all, we live in a fast-paced culture where expectations, from ourselves and others, is ever-increasing. It is understandable to feel strained by your responsibilities, but are they weighing you down more than they are bringing you joy? Perhaps you want to make a life change but don't know how? Through counselling, also known as "talk therapy", I can help put you on the path to reaching your goals and taking control of your life.

I assist in developing a person's full potential - to live a satisfying life, be resilient in difficult circumstances, be aware of self with honesty, compassion, and courage.
Please note I offer secure video counselling and therapy, and do not offer in-person appointments at this time. Most concerns can be effectively addressed via video. Effective, understanding therapy utilizing an integrative approach is what I can offer. Many people who reach out to me are feeling highly stressed, are anxious, or may feel lost, down and helpless about how to address their issues. Our sessions together are designed to help you address your emotional or behaviour concerns, and help you find the tools to live your life better. I believe that good therapy has to fit you and what you need, not the other way around.

Life Coaching Counsellors

What can I expect from life coaching?

Clients and coaches will typically start by identifying the problem area(s) that the client hopes to address—then, the coach will help the client brainstorm potential solutions and explore concrete techniques to help the client attain their goals. Coaching is typically short-term and focused on finding solutions in the here and now, rather than exploring a client’s past. In addition to strategies aimed at the client’s specific concerns, coaches may encourage general stress management techniques such as meditation.

Can a life coach help treat anxiety?

Because the majority of life coaches are not licensed clinicians, they are not qualified to diagnose or treat anxiety. Anyone struggling with anxiety or another mental health condition should seek help from a licensed mental health practitioner. However, some coaching clients who struggle with subclinical anxiety report that working with their coach on other problems—such as career dissatisfaction or unhealthy habits—has a positive effect on their anxiety.

Can life coaching be done online?

Yes. While life coaching often happens in person, many coaches conduct sessions over the phone or via online platforms such as Zoom or Skype. Because life coaches are not subject to local licensing regulations in the same way that therapists are, they are able to see clients who live in other locations.

How long does life coaching last?

Life coaching tends to be a shorter-term process than therapy, though it does not always unfold over a specific period of time and is instead based on the coach’s or the client’s preferences. Coaching often takes place over three to 12 months but may be shorter or longer if necessary.
