Our humanity is shared in that we all experience stress, pain, and conflicts in our lives. Through small shifts, our relationships with others and ourselves can improve when we align our inner experience, thoughts, and behaviours with our authentic self. I like to approach therapy by helping you uncover the blocks that are keeping you from living as the absolute best version of yourself.

How come I'm having a hard time conceiving when everyone makes it look so easy? How come I lost my baby and all of my friends and family around me got to have their babies?

“Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.” - James Baldwin. Mental illness continues to be a taboo subject in many communities, despite the fact that it is a significant aspect of our overall health and well being. The fear that surrounds addressing mental illness leaves many people feeling silenced and isolated and can lead to physical illness overtime.

Relationships are hard. When things aren't going well, there's nothing more difficult than trying to deal with another person, especially someone you love. It can leave you feeling overwhelmed, confused, heartbroken and alone. It can get you questioning everything you ever thought was real about your relationship and wonder how you'll ever get things right side up again. Don't give up. I know it's not easy, but it can get better.

Solution Focused Brief (SFBT) Counsellors
Solution-focused therapy in L1N, sometimes called "brief therapy," focuses on what clients would like to achieve through therapy rather than on their troubles or mental health issues. The therapist will help the client envision a desirable future, and then map out the small and large changes necessary for the client to undergo to realize their vision. The therapist will seize on any successes the client experiences, to encourage them to build on their strengths rather than dwell on their problems or limitations.

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.
