I have experience treating individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, panic disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, bipolar disorder , trauma, life transitions, stress, sleep disturbances, family & relationship issues, grief & loss, and issues related to self-esteem.
Do you feel unmotivated, stuck or fatigued? Do you find yourself feeling irritable or anxious around others? Do you feel increased stress from the pandemic? My approach to therapy is not only helping you manage and cope with your symptoms, but also work towards resolving them. I believe that you have the inner workings to heal and live a meaningful life based on your values. It can be difficult to navigate the therapy world and I commend you on taking the first step in seeking help. If you have already started your healing journey I welcome the opportunity to collaborate.

Over the past fifteen years I have worked with patients diagnosed with anxiety disorders, clinical depression and bipolar disorder .
We humans suffer because we don’t get what we want and get what we don’t want. Most of us want to find a quick cure to our emotional pain. Quick cures sedate the pain which is the source of Wisdom, Compassion, Understanding and Real Love. My approach is for the person who wants to answer the timeless questions of: “Who am I?”, “Where did I come from?”, “Where am I going?” from their own depths and to their full understanding. It is in this journey, through self-inquiry, that they become happier, wiser and more compassionate.

I specialize in individual psychotherapy with adults; grief, mood (depression + bipolar ), anxiety (generalized, social, situational) and concurrent disorders (mood + addiction).
I offer warmth, genuineness, empathy and humour as you wind your way through the complexities of living a life of meaning, despite inevitable challenges. I will hold a safe space, provide support, and help you reach your therapy goals, whether that be practical coping strategies, identifying and working with emotions past or present, or getting in touch with your inner wisdom (because we ALL have inner wisdom). I come to sessions with my own humanity open wide, because connection is a fundamental need and foundational to the work of therapy, which can be gut-wrenching and profound at the same time. I'll walk that path with you.

I have specialized training and expertise in working with complex-PTSD, bipolar disorder and psychosis, as well as with queer and gender diverse individuals.
I am a social worker with over 15 years of experience providing psychotherapy to diverse clients presenting with a wide range of concerns including coping with trauma, mood instability, questions around gender or queer identity, and difficulty functioning and coping. As a client-centered, holistic, and emotion-focused practitioner I strive to create a safe therapeutic space in which clients can process their emotions in a deep and meaningful way that then enables them to break free from maladaptive patterns and empowers them to connect to their true selves and tap into their natural resilience.

Your conversations with a therapist should help you to explore your situation, look for alternative perspectives and find solutions or new strategies. Whether you are discussing sexuality issues, anxiety, depression, bipolar , trauma, or life transitions, you should feel supported, understood and challenged to explore all the different aspects of the situation. My goals for therapy are to help you increase coping strategies, increase communication and negotiation skills, increase self-esteem, increase your awareness of your strengths and to process difficult situations like grief and loss or the experience of a traumatic event.

Welcome! In my practice, I use an integrative approach to meet the unique needs of each client and family I work with.  This includes practicing with a relational, attachment focused, and strengths-based theoretical base, along with an anti-oppressive and trauma-informed framework with clients. I incorporate modalities such as mindfulness, cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, motivational interviewing, and narrative therapy. These modalities can help clients gain insight into their circumstances, empower them towards/reach their goals and learn ways to effectively manage life’s challenges.

I support individuals with challenges related to anxiety, depression, self-esteem, trauma and abuse, substance use, relationship issues, connection and belonging, loss and grief, and stressful life changes. Through providing warm, experiential and compassionate support I aim to create a space that feels accepting, empowering and has lots of room for exploration. I emphasize a holistic approach and the importance of exploring the mind body connection in healing. All of my work is trauma informed and rooted in anti-oppression and intersectional feminism. My practice welcomes individuals of diverse gender identities, sexualities, ethnicities, cultural backgrounds, ages, abilities, and lifestyles.

Therapy can sometimes feel difficult. It can be painful to look at how other people or institutions have affected our lives, or at how we have affected other people's. It is no mystery that relationships are complicated, but we can try to talk about them. We can start the process of unwinding your life, so that we can really look at it. Focusing on your needs is not selfish, despite the messaging we receive. Your life is valuable and it absolutely matters.

Feelings are hard to talk about. I understand that. It can be scary and unfamiliar. It can feel too vulnerable to bring to the surface what you have been carrying within yourself for so long. Maybe you don't know what you're feeling - that's okay, and it's also incredibly valuable to explore difficulty accessing feelings in and of itself. Maybe you're accustomed to talking about your feelings but you're stuck in old patterns that don't feel good. However you come to therapy, I will try to meet you where you are, with warmth, acceptance and curiosity.

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 our 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!

Bipolar Disorder Counsellors
The defining feature of bipolar disorder is mania. It can be the triggering episode of the disorder, followed by a depressive episode, or it can first manifest after years of depressive episodes. The switch between mania and depression can be abrupt, and moods can oscillate rapidly. But while an episode of mania is what distinguishes bipolar disorder from depression, a person may spend far more time in a depressed state than in a manic or hypomanic one.
