I utilize Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Psychodynamic and Trauma informed Therapy's as well as Mindfulness, Humanistic and Spiritual based methods.
You may be struggling with feelings of sadness, hopelessness, fear or anger. If you’re facing a crisis, or feeling like life just shouldn’t be this difficult, then you have come to the right place. You didn't cause all of your life's problems, but the good news is that you don't have to wait for anyone to repair the impact of them. I work in a gentle, compassionate and non-judgmental way to help restore balance and connection to the mind and body. Once balance is restored, relationships – whether it be with self or others – begin to improve. Restoring connection is what creates a life of fulfilment and meaning.

I am a compassionate, understanding, non-judgmental counsellor who believes everyone has the right to wellness and balance. I provide insurance-friendly counselling for individuals, couples, families and children. My special area of focus is in helping my clients to free themselves from their painful, traumatic pasts and to achieve personal balance and wellness as they create a fresh start in life.

My name is Michelle and I created The Relationship Agency because I know that we all do better when we have authentic, insightful, and secure relationships. Most couples who come to me are dealing with frequent arguing, a lack of trust, and a feeling like they don't know each other at all. They wonder where the love is gone and don't know what to do. When ADHD is present, they're fighting over the mess around the house, parenting, and everything in between and living with deep stress, sadness, and anxiety. My individual clients struggle with big life questions and the impacts of ADHD, they're trying their best but underperforming.

Namaste! I provide individual, relationship and marriage counselling, in a nonjudgmental, relaxed environment. Over the last 35 years I have worked with individuals and couples guiding, teaching and helping them by using an eclectic approach, and a variety of different types of modalities depending on the particular needs of my clients. I also provide family mediation and relationship counselling for couples who have split. I am a sex therapist, working with all couples and individuals. I specialize in many areas, as I believe all issues are connected, so to treat problems in isolation is unrealistic and can be short lived.

**Currently accepting, limited space** Looking for the right therapist can be challenging and stressful. When I sit across from a client, I value and respect that I am being invited into important, personal situations, thoughts, and vulnerabilities. My philosophy to clinical work comes from my belief that you are trying to do the best you can and want better. I will both accept you for where you are at, while pushing you toward the change you are looking for. I take a genuine, empathic and directive approach to support you in creating a life worth living.

Is your child going through a difficult time, having trouble expressing feelings and/or communicating with others? Are they struggling with overwhelm, anxiety or difficulty regulating their emotions? I offer sessions to support your child in different ways: developmentally, emotions awareness and expression and increasing coping skills. The way your child perceives themselves and the world can make all the difference! We use creativity and talk therapy to explore and process thoughts and feelings, and together discover effective coping skills for daily support. It is not necessary to know how to play an instrument to participate.

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy in Whitby, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
