Counselling Services

My approach to therapy and coaching is Solution-Focused, meaning that we primarily focus on creating your fulfilling future.

You will change when you are inspired by a new vision of the possibilities that exists for your life. It can take time to see these possibilities, but with some help finding a new perspective, you'll gain new confidence and be on your way to affecting lasting change in your life. 

I provide the following professional counselling services for individuals, couples and families:

  • Depression, Anxiety and Self-Esteem Issues

  • Emotional Support during Life and Career Transitions

  • Grief Support

  • Stress Management and Work/Life Balance Support

  • Family Violence Support for Women

  • Self-esteem & Assertiveness Support for Women

  • Breast Cancer Survivorship Support (as a survivor personally)

  • Spiritual and Vocational Counselling- identifying values and finding life purpose 

I have experience and skill with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues. We will work together in a comfortable and supportive environment, where you'll receive a personalized approach tailored to your individual needs.
