We all need a safe space, and a person to hear, and understand us. I believe that we can tackle problems more effectively when we can discuss them openly and honestly. It’s my role to facilitate that conversation and create the pathway towards your preferred ways of living.

I believe that you have the ability to live your best and most fulfilling life with some support and guidance. Mental health is one of the most feared topics to discuss because of all the stigma and shame associated with struggling with mental and psychological wellness. My hope is that we can work together to identify, acknowledge and work through any of the struggles you are experiencing.

I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with 9 years experience working with Children, Youth and their Family. As Carl Rogers quoted “People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” I believe we sometimes need a safe and trusting space to understand our inner struggles and recognize ways to cope. I see my professional role as helping individuals recognize their own strengths and beauty by being present with them in their mental health journey.

School Issues (Academic Underachievement, Academic Counselling) Counsellors
Students underachieve in school for a variety of reasons. Motivational problems, ADHD, and learning disabilities can all be a challenge to any parent. Child therapists, child psychologists, or school psychologists in L1N can help to assess a child's needs and offer much needed help.

Academic counsellors in L1N help with learning issues, child education issues or ADD (attention deficit). They can work with academic underachievers who are quite bright, gifted and intelligent, as well as with children with developmental disabilities (i.e. disabilities students). Additionally, L1N Counsellors work with nonverbal learning disabilities, cognitive disabilities, and reading difficulties.

Children with problems at school, or who are failing at school in L1N all have specific and unique instructional needs. A good L1N academic counsellor or school counsellor will provide the individualized attention and support a student needs to succeed.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in L1N are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in L1N you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in L1N and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in L1N or family therapy in L1N.
