Why Seek Therapy? 

I am a big believer in the power of relationships. We are not meant to face the challenges life brings alone! Much research suggests healing comes through healthy, supportive relationships. We all need someone to journey alongside us at some point or another, and I am glad to be one such a person in your life.

People seek therapy for a variety of reasons--there truly is no reason too big or too small.  

Counselling provides a safe space to share your story, process through difficult experiences and emotions, and learn more effective/healthy ways of dealing with life's difficulties.

There are many benefits to counselling (again, this list is by no means exhaustive!):

  • Increased insight in relationships

  • Gaining more 'tools' that help in dealing with life's stressors

  • A safe, accepting relationship

  • A safe place to try out new behaviours and communication tactics
