Need an experienced caring professional to support you through life's challenges? My name is Brittany and I want to work with you in achieving your goal to make life better. I work with diverse clients including children, teens and adults specializing in mental health, family and relationship challenges and coping through life transitions. Therapy sessions are collaborative, focused on working together to create helpful and practical coping strategies. My goal is to work with you to build on your current strengths and resilience to make life better.
As a Registered Master's of Social Worker, I believe through our journey of life we all need positive support and guidance along our path. Over the years, I have worked with a variety of clients who had anxiety, depression, ADHD, ASD, trauma, family dynamics, couples, addictions and special needs which have all increased my focus and passion to helping others. I specialize in working with children, youth, special needs and families.
Being in a smaller community it's important that I run from a general practice standpoint. This means I will work with you to the best of my abilities. I will work with you on your current issues and help you with additional resources. If your looking to get started or have experienced previous counselling from others, I invite you to work with me to see what benefit counselling can be to you.
I have had the privilege to counsel many individuals, couples and groups over the past 22 years. Whether you're experiencing distressing symptoms of anxiety, depression, grief, chronic sadness, faltering relationships or a sense of loss of meaning, you are not alone. I am dedicated to holding a compassionate and safe space where whatever you need to express can be seen and heard without judgment or agenda. I draw upon proven counselling tools to help create an atmosphere for change and wellness for clients of all ages, backgrounds, ethnicities, gender and sexual preference.
Registered Psychotherapist, RP , BAHon, MDiv, OAMHP
My name is Heather Evans and I am pleased to be working as a psychotherapist in Southern Georgian Bay, Ont. It is my privilege to support individuals to take courage and move forward towards greater healing. Taking the step to pursue counselling and support can seem intimidating, I recognize this and work to create a safe, warm and empathic environment where my clients feel able to be open. I am a firm believer in the power of connections. We need to be connected to others often to find healing and growth and that is what I love about this job, supporting others where-ever they/you find yourself.
Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying), RP (Q), DipAT
Over the last 20 years, I have worked with individuals and families, of all ages, in a variety of different settings. This has ranged from counselling in a family physician's office to front-line child protection and now, I am returning to private psychotherapy practice. The people I work with have often felt uncomfortable or uncertain about seeking help. They tend to have a sense of how they would like life to be different, but are at times, unsure of how to move forward and start the process of change.
I have a 2.5 month waitlist. I offer compassionate therapy for trauma, grief, eating disorders, addictions, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, sexual orientation, serious mental health issues, dissociation, chronic pain, concussions, childhood abuse, relocation issues, sleep, anger or anything else. Everyone gets stuck from time to time. You don't have to be alone any more. I will adapt my style to your individual needs. I believe that behind your struggles is an astonishing ability to find hope, healing, strength, creativity, connection and fulfillment. I have been a psychotherapist for 23 years.
A warm welcome! I believe in change, I believe in possibility and I believe in potential. Therapy is growth. It's taking you from where you are right now and guiding you gently to where you want to be through education, empowerment, experience, personal commitment and practice. At Touchstone Healing your feelings, emotions, beliefs and pain stories are explored in a safe, relaxed environment dedicated to honor and validate your experience. We then work together with the goal of moving into acceptance and release to create space for a more positive and meaningful experience of life.
Have you been feeling stuck and unable to change how you feel or act? Most likely you have been effected by experiences from your past. Consciously you may understand the value of changing a behaviour, but unless your deeper mind is transformed, change is not likely. Attempting to bring about enduring change without eliminating these "ghosts from the past" is like trying to repair the structure of a building by applying a coat of paint. Using a gentle, painless, and fun approach to therapy, I create immediate and lasting change through brain-changing conversations, teaching you how to stress-proof and play your brain for change.
Are your emotions overwhelming? Maybe you cannot feel anything at all, which makes it difficult to connect with others or be the type of person you want to be. Do you find yourself repeatedly responding to situations in unhelpful ways? Are your emotions, thoughts, memories, or symptoms interfering with the life you want to live? We will work together to kick your symptoms or internal experiences (e.g., memories, emotions) out of the driver’s seat so you can take back control and build a meaningful life.
As a child or a teenager, you may be finding that you are feeling misunderstood by many adults in your life, and that your problems are often deemed insignificant. Growing up in today’s world is difficult and stressful, whether it be due to peer and family relationships, school stress, future life planning, or the effects of social media, among many others. It seems like anxiety and depression are a part of everyday language in the media and your peer group, and it has left you wondering if this pain you're feeling is just an inevitable aspect of growing up.
Do you need someone to talk to that can help you to process feelings and thoughts, help you identify skills for coping, and build on your inner strengths? If you are not feeling like yourself, or you are struggling with mental health concerns, please contact me for a complimentary phone consultation to discuss how I might be able to help you on your way to feeling better. I have experience working with diverse populations in community and primary care settings. I offer counselling services for children, youth, and adults, specializing in treatment and support for grief, anxiety, depression & stress management.

There are times in life when it all just feels like too much. Perhaps we’ve been aware for a while that things aren’t quite right. Or, maybe it comes out of the blue. Emotional upsets affect everyone. We may be faced with uncertainty and the unknown. Other times, we are curious about and want to deepen our understanding of our inner world, find, grow and strengthen the connection to our Self within. It's possible to move into a state of more peace. Into the life you want. Grow more awareness, self-esteem, and confidence. And, with a therapist alongside for part of your journey, you don't have to do it alone.
I work with trauma survivors, adolescents and their parents, couples, individual adults and new parents. It is in relationship that we are formed, and it is also in relationship that we can heal and grow. My job is to provide a safe, professional, healing relationship. It is my goal to look beyond symptoms and pathology to help you make contact with your authentic self. I also view my role as a bridge, helping couples and families discover and create a sense of safety and security so that each person in the relationship can thrive.
There are times in our life when it feels like nothing we do makes a difference. Problems become complicated by issues associated with our struggles managing mood or anxiety, feelings of shame, or coping with grief and loss. Situations such as transitions related to life stages, conflict or loss of connection in significant relationships, or changes in mental well being can be distressing and overwhelming. I work hard to build collaborative alliances with clients to co-construct different narratives about our relationship with problems, and develop alternative personal stories of strength, growth and recovery.
