I'm here to support you in your journey through life's stressors and into healing. Seeking counselling/consultation is a normal and healthy way of dealing with life's problems and emotional injuries, just as seeking a healthcare practitioner is for managing other health concerns. You don't need to have severe mental health issues to seek support. However, I also work with those who are struggling with severe stress, anxiety, depression, and other mental health concerns.
I provide individual, couples, family, child/teen therapy, parent consultation, child protection info/support, clinical consultation, court support/accompaniment, supervised visits/access, as well as therapeutic child care for children under age 12 who have emotional/behavioural issues. Therapeutic child care is a combination of therapy and child care which includes naturalistic observation and behavioral strategies for parenting, post-session. I implement several modalities for a broad range of issues not listed.
I come from an empathic, client-centred approach with respectful regard for the experiences that you face, and, therefore, work from a both a sensitive and solid ethical perspective. I'm a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA) in good standing.
Please contact me by phone, text or email for further questions or search my website and business information online. If you're wondering if I work with a particular issue that you're experiencing or if I'm the right match as a therapist, you may send me a quick message/text to find out. There is no pressure to commit yourself to an entire process, as initial messages and phone calls up to 10 minutes are free, prior to an in-person session. I look forward to hearing from you.
