Sometimes the challenges we face in our daily lives become too difficult to manage alone. We may need someone to talk to who can help us find solutions. Whether you are facing the challenges of raising children; struggling with intimate relationships; exploring issues of sexual orientation or gender identity; experiencing difficulties with life transitions (parenthood, blended families, grief & loss or caring for an aging family member) counselling can help. Research studies and personal testimony support how effective counselling can be. With 15+ years of clinical experience, I can help tailor a therapy program designed to meet your personal counselling needs.
