Announcement icon COVID-19 Advisory: During these times I will continue to offer services and will be doing so through secure video or telephone sessions!
I believe it's important that we feel confident in our ability to cope and navigate life's challenges however, we may not always feel that way given the circumstances or our skills. Having a safe and nonjudgemental space where we can speak openly about our experiences can help increase our confidence in our ability to cope and navigate life's challenges. Whether you are looking to improve your mood, manage stress, gain new perspectives or make changes in your life I can help!
I believe you know yourself best and together through the therapeutic process, we will explore your experiences, needs and strengths to develop the tools and skills needed to achieve and accomplish your goals! As a therapist, my role is to support you in gaining new insight and awareness through a person-centred approach to help you make lasting changes.
I imagine that this process is not always easy and certainly having the right therapist can help and make a difference. I would be happy to connect with you for a free in-person or telephone consultation to determine if I am the right fit. Ultimately, I would be grateful to be part of your journey!
