Let's build a bridge from where you are to where you want to be

INDIVIDUAL COUNSELLING

All of us have the innate drive to grow, heal, and realize our potential, living our fullest life.
But we all, at one time or another, need support along the way.

Let's work together to build a bridge from where you are now in your story, to where you want to be.

Our lives tell many stories

If you could tell your life journey as a story, what part would you be telling right now?

 

RELATIONSHIP COUNSELLING

What story is your relationship telling?

Is it the story you want it to be telling? Like any story, there are parts of your romantic relationship you really enjoy –

and there may be some parts that you don’t.

Difficulties arise when the parts we enjoy are overshadowed by the parts of our relationship story that hurt us, or scare us, and even break our hearts. I work with couples who identify as straight or queer in all sorts of relationship styles – monogamous, open – facing challenges like commitment, cheating, jealousy, disconnection, resentment, and uncertainty.

We can work together to shift your relationship story to one that aligns with your values as individuals in a partnership, strengthening your connection, and deepening your understanding of yourself and your loved one.

 

LGBTQ+ SERVICES

If you identify as LGBTQ+, finding health professionals with queer and trans competencies can be challenging. I work with clients of all ages who identify as members of LGBTQ+ communities on a range of issues, from identity, expression, and relationship concerns to anxiety and depression. 

 

MY APPROACH

​I integrate a range of therapeutic approaches to explore your emotional, cognitive, and physical experiences. Working collaboratively, we create a therapeutic experience tailored to the unique intersectionality and contexts present in your life. ​Folks come to work with me on all sorts of concerns:

  • anxiety and panic 

  • depression

  • feeling stressed or overwhelmed

  • relationship conflict and repair

  • life transitions, like graduation or retirement

  • destructive thought patterns or behaviours

  • skills for building lasting connection in relationships

Whatever you would like to focus on, undertaking counselling is a courageous act. I value transparency throughout the counselling process. Feel free to get in touch and ask me questions about my work.
