Counselling can help you take care of your Mental Health. Contact for a FREE Consultation.

Support can be provided through counselling for the following concerns:

Anxiety Issues

Support can be provided for all types of anxiety issues including general anxiety, social anxiety, Covid related anxiety, and even obsessive compulsive disorder. Therapy will assist in understanding the relationship between thoughts, feelings and behaviors and learning to gradually reduce related fears, excessive worries, rumination and negative actions that fuel anxiety problems. 


Depression / Mood Issues

Mood problems can impact sleep problems, eating issues, motivation and energy for activities/tasks, and can make it difficult to get out of bed and take care of yourself. Self-harm behaviors and suicidal ideation might also be a result of overwhelming emotions. There does not need to be a diagnosis to experience depression episodes or mood problems. Mood problems may result from an inherited vulnerability and/or stressful upsetting events. Psychotherapy is often recommended to to assist with learning coping techniques to manage difficult emotions, and how to make positive life changes. 

Trauma / Abuse

My approach recognizes that the trauma and/or abuse you have faced can influence problems you may be facing presently. Sessions will strive to establish trust, safety, collaboration with you, and work with your strengths towards empowerment and improved confidence in areas of functioning.  

Grief & Loss

Support can be provided for any type of mourning or loss and assist with the symptoms associated with bereavement/grief. Therapy can also address the mental health impacts of loss and introduce coping techniques to approach healing with compassion. 

Substance Use Issues

Counselling support includes addressing your personal goals towards substance use whether it be abstinence or harm-reduction, and takes a non-judgmental, compassionate approach to help you reduce the risks of substance use and its impact on your life and functioning. Assistance can also be provided with navigation and support through external intensive treatment options if desired or recommended. 

Relationship Problems

Individual Counselling can provide a confidential space to support you through difficulties you may be experiencing with loved ones. This includes exploring healthy relationship values, and strategies to enhance communication and reduce conflicts. Often addressing how you may approach situations can enhance outcomes and lead to more positive interactions. 

Gender & Sexuality

Counselling services can support individuals from the 2SLGBTQ community by providing a safe and non-judgmental space to explore challenges associated with gender identity or questioning identities, sexual orientation, struggles around coming out, transition related supports, and relationship counselling, and how these concerns may be impacting one's mental health. Therapeutic techniques can help in areas of anxiety and depression management, trauma, self-esteem enhancement, improved communication skills in relationships, and even support for substance abuse.
