What I can help with
I can help with a wide range of challenges, including times of transition, coping skills, questions around identity and/or sexuality, LGBTQ+ challenges, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, relationship issues and/or divorce/separation, problems with school or work, and parenting challenges.
Approach to counselling
My basic belief is hopeful and positive: that ultimately people are “good” and are striving for wellness and wholeness with the internal and external resources they have. I am committed to helping you unpack and leave behind stories and ways of coping that no longer serve your needs, while building resilience and moving towards new ways of relating to self and others, stepping authentically into life and relationships.
Of utmost importance is establishing a strong therapeutic relationship to serve as a container as we work deeply to achieve your goals. My own lived experience with trauma, mental health challenges, sexuality/identity and experience of parenthood help inform and support the work we will do together. I believe that every person has intrinsic strengths and resilience that can be cultivated for more adaptive, holistic wellness.
As a queer-identified woman, I am particularly interested but not exclusively focused on supporting clients within the LGBTQ2S+ community. I intentionally support overall mental wellness for all men, women and adolescents as we work to resolve, understand and reflect on barriers that exist in attaining psychological well-being.
