Life can be challenging and we may feel lost, overwhelmed or a myriad of other emotions that we do not always understand. Therapy provides a safe and supportive space in which to understand and find ways of overcoming these challenges. Our lives are unique, and as such the focus of therapy I provide is aligned to your particular needs, whether it is to manage a crisis within yourself, or to better understand and function in relationships with others. I work with children , tweens, adolescents and adults.

Everyone has ups and downs in their journey of life, but sometimes you need additional support to navigate particular low points. Your thinking may be cyclical, so addressing the problem from multiple angles, with various lenses, can be the breakthrough that is needed. I work with a Humanistic and Positive Psychology framework that sees you as whole and focuses on your strengths. You are not your trauma, your grief, or your diagnosis. I want to help you to improve your quality of life and to fulfill your potential. I also use Resilience coaching to look at your mental, physical and emotional needs, to identify growth areas.

When we aren't feeling like the best version of ourselves, it's tough to engage in our lives in the way we would like to; our daily stress adds up and pulls us away from the things that are important to us. Whether little things in your life are piling up and becoming overwhelming or you are in the midst of a major life transition, accessing support is an important first step to living a value-driven life. Having a dedicated time in which to process our thoughts with an unbiased listener can build the insight we need to thrive.

No doubt you are looking at this site because you want something in your life to change. You want to feel better, get out of a repetitive rut, make some relationship changes or improvements, or just feel better within your own skin. My clients find it a huge relief to share and process their concerns - within the safe space of my counselling room or via secure online therapy. I believe strongly in a gentle therapy method - a non-judgemental and compassionate attitude - creating a safe, nurturing space for healing and change to begin. I am very aware of how vulnerable one feels in making that first appointment. It is worth it!

Child Counsellors

Do I need to attend therapy with my child?

Parents are an integral part of a child’s therapy, but the specifics of their involvement vary. If your child is young, you may attend most or all sessions; if your child is older, you may attend a few sessions or none; sometimes a therapist may ask you to have a session on your own. Whatever the arrangement, you should expect to work collaboratively with the therapist, your child, and your family members to take steps to help support your child.

How long are sessions with child therapists?

Children’s therapy sessions can last 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 60 minutes. The length of the session may depend on your child’s age and the type of therapy practiced. You can discuss this with therapists you consult and the one you ultimately move forward with.

How do I get a child to agree to seek therapy?

The best approach is to have an open-ended conversation with your child about how they’re doing and what they might be struggling with. When you raise therapy, discuss the concept in an age-appropriate way, for example explaining that a therapist’s job is to help kids handle their hard or uncomfortable feelings. Frame therapy positively, as an opportunity to explore and build emotional skills—it’s an important tool in the toolbox to help kids feel their best.

How can I tell if a therapist is a good fit for my child?

A child needs to feel comfortable opening up about their thoughts and feelings, so if your child feels a sense of comfort, ease, and trust with their therapist, that’s a great sign. In addition, a therapist is a good fit for your child if the two can communicate well together; a clinician should be able to communicate clearly, effectively, and in an age-appropriate manner.
