Having kids is amazing and wonderful. And very, very hard. No one really talks about how hard it is, which makes the rest of us feel like we're doing something wrong. The baby you walked the floor with at night is gone. You have no idea what changed and sometimes you have no idea what's going on. That sweet baby has become a sassy tween, a grunting teen , or is struggling in some way. It's affecting your relationship, your work, and (most importantly!) YOU. Your parenting style isn't working, or you're not sure you ever had one. Whether you want to work on you, your relationships, or your parenting, I would love to help.

You’re getting calls from the school about your child. If he even makes it to school. Your sweet little baby is almost unrecognizable. She hates herself, she hates you, and you’re an idiot for trying to help. He spends most of his time in his room glued to the phone or ignoring you. You can’t figure out what’s going on, you're frustrated, tired, and at a loss as a parent as to how to help. I get it. Parenting is hard sometimes. If your child or adolescent is struggling with issues around peer relationships, anxiety, depression, school, parental separation, gender identity, ADHD, and other types of neurodiversity, I can help.

*I am currently on maternity leave and not taking new clients* Thank you for considering me for the very important role of working with your family. As a parent, do you wonder how best to support the emotional needs of your teen or how to get them to open up to you? Do you dream of a closer, deeper relationship with your teen or pre- teen but you aren’t sure how to get there when it feels like they’re pushing you away? If your teen is experiencing difficulties in relationships with friends or family members, emotions that feel overwhelming or out of control, or difficulty making healthy decisions, let's talk about how I can help.

I work primarily with men, women and adolescents to help them with their challenges and assist them with being present in their lives. I am grateful to work with our community's first responders addressing work, trauma and personal issues related to their service. I work with people who identify as part of the LGBTQ & Kink communities in a culturally sensitive and sex positive environment. Sometimes people are great at pretending everything's fine, even when their life is falling apart. Trying to carry the weight of the world all by yourself is a sure path to so many of the negative emotional and psychological issues we all face.

I am available online and in person on Monday evenings and on Saturdays to accommodate all the other things you have going on in your life or your teen 's life.
You thought this would be easier. All your mom friends seem so happy but you're confused, maybe depressed, and completely overwhelmed. And your body doesn't feel like your body anymore, either. Nothing looks or feels the same and no one told you that the miracle of birth and breastfeeding isn't all that swell. Your partner doesn't seem to know how to help, your inlaws are meddling, and you want to run away and sleep for a month. You're overwhelmed, exhausted, and you need to vent without judgement. I get it. I've been there, too. No judgement, no more "shoulds". I'm hear to listen, to support, and to help you enjoy motherhood.

Life can be challenging, especially when you are becoming an adult. Your beliefs may not match with those of your family or friends -- that can be frustrating. You may be questioning where your life leads. Sometimes, crap happens and we eventually need to deal with it. Counselling is an option that can help you understand yourself and others around you. Think of it as hanging out with someone who's going to encourage you to be you.

I have been working in the Social Work field since 2010. For the first 2 years, I assisted those who struggled primarily with their mental health. From 2012 up until early 2019, I specialized in addictions of both youth and adults. Lastly, since 2016, I have provided private counseling supporting a variety of ages and presenting concerns. Issues range from anxiety, as the most prominent, to grief, couples, bullying and more. Social Workers are trained with various techniques in order to relieve their clients of whichever burden they may be carrying. It is my passion to listen and help develop a plan to move forward in your life.

Adults who are struggling with relationship issues, monogamy, spirituality, neurodiversity, and adulting are my kind of people. Adulting is hard enough. But if your unique way of thinking and being in the world doesn't seem to fit with everyone else's and you think it's time to figure things out, you're in the right place. I work with adults who are questioning and want to find where they fit. Because we're not all vanilla or the same. There's room for everyone. I also work with kids and teens with ADHD/learning issues (and their parents) to help them learn coping skills and strategies in a world that just doesn't get it.

My lived experiences are incorporated into my clinical work to support others in connecting “head to heart” in challenging and dismantling the many social constructs people often feel they need to uphold. As you begin to lean into the vulnerability of speaking your truth, the awakening journey begins.

Teen Counsellors
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in St Thomas and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
