I specialize in helping people who are struggling with addiction issues and/or anxiety, mood or personality disorders. I really enjoy working with ‘stuck’ clients. Those people who know they want or need change but aren’t sure how to get there. You are not broken, and you do not need to be fixed. You might be feeling a little lost though. Let me serve as a guide to walk with you and show you some possible ways out. You don't need to commit to any long term therapy or all the 'what ifs' at this point. All you need to do is reach out and make that first connection. Let's have a conversation about what's going on.

Solution Focused Brief (SFBT) Counsellors
Solution-focused therapy in Burlington, 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.
