Welcome, and congratulations on starting your search for a therapist. It's important you feel a connection and find the right fit. I welcome consultation calls where we have a brief chat over the phone to assess if we'll be a good fit.
My role is to support your journey to healing, wellness and growth. I have many years of experience in the area of reproductive mental health, specifically fertility, pregnancy, and postpartum challenges.
I also have my own experience of pregnancy loss, fertility challenges & treatments, and being a mother. I believe that my lived experience, combined with years of helping women & couples through challenging times, will make your journey feel a little less lonely. In our sessions together, you can expect a down-to-earth, compassionate, and non-judgmental ally.
My goal in us working together is to engage in meaningful work, to empower you in discovering your own ability to heal, and to guide you in the discovery of your inner wisdom - and YES you do have your own ability to heal & we will most definitely tap into your inner strength & wisdom. I also have a vast and varied "toolbox" full of strategies & tools to offer as needed.
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) and Perinatal Mental Health Certified (PMH-C).
