Now accepting clients in North York & Vaughan. I feel alone. I am scared and hurting and no one understands. I feel so overwhelmed or sometimes I feel nothing. I can't stop my intrusive thoughts. I am stuck and I don't know what to do. These are common statements that I hear from clients all the time. Stress, anxiety, depression, and emotion dysregulation are common issues that so many of us are dealing with. I believe that you feel alone and that no one can help you. You desperately want help and support. I think you are here because you want to share your story and be vulnerable. I am a safe space and I want to hear your story.

Years ago whilst dealing with some health issues that affected me both mentally and physically a mentor/counsellor told me to “change my thoughts, in order to change my world. Because my present circumstances at the time did not determine were I go, but where I started." Hence, I do understand how mental and physical struggles can impact one's life and that admitting to those struggles and asking for help is never easy. I am here to walk alongside you on the journey to healing and restoration.
