My struggles aren't serious enough for therapy.
Therapy will never end once I start.
Going to therapy means I'm weak.
Counselling That Works
Whether e-counselling or in person counselling, my client centered approach means you have a hand in what we discuss and where our conversation goes. I work with adults and post-secondary students addressing mental health challenges: anxiety (social/generalized), depression, trauma, attachment, life transitions, self-esteem/personal identity, stress management, and relationships. I enjoy helping you to identify both healthy and unhealthy patterns, enabling you to gain awareness of your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. Together we will work to regain some control in your life.
I have an Undergraduate in Social Work, Master of Counselling, and am a Registered Clinical Social Worker. Our work will draw on mental health techniques such as CBT, Emotion Focused techniques, Solution Focused Therapy, EMDR, somatic/body-focused approaches, and strength-based approaches.
Sessions are confidential counselling. I understand that coming into counselling can sometimes be an intimidating process. It is my goal to create a safe, compassionate, nonjudgmental environment for you to explore and process.
I look forward to starting this journey alongside you.
E-Counselling & In Person Sessions
Anxiety & Depression
Depression and anxiety can feel debilitating. Our work together brings awareness to your experiences and instills hope for change.
Eye movement desensitization reprocessing (EMDR) is a psycho-therapeutic intervention which supports the healing of trauma. This is particularly effective for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Coping Skills & Support
We can face many challenging life circumstances that are hard to navigate on our own. Therapy provides a safe, confidential space to explore ways of dealing with these distressing times.
Trauma & PTSD
Many individuals experience activating situations day to day that can be associated with their past trauma - almost like you are reliving the painful experience all over again. We will work together to heal these past wounds, making them less intrusive for you today.
