Therapy sessions are 50 minutes in length and usually begin with an informal and brief check-in. Regardless of the process, the first session will be spent gathering information and creating a service plan that suits you. A service plan helps us set goals for what you would like to see happen in therapy; your expectations and your hopes. Please see the side bar for a list of the services that I provide. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Please note, my counselling practice is online using a secure video platform.
I personally understand how dealing with infertility can be one of the most heartbreaking experiences that a person can go through. It can be all consuming, create feelings of isolation, and cause barriers and tensions in intimate relationships.
You are not alone. I am here to provide you with emotional support, practical information and resources, and encourage you on your journey.
I offer support to people who have been unable to conceive, to those who are currently undergoing fertility treatment, and to those who have experienced miscarriages and reproductive loss.
I work with couples in all stages of their relationship. I see couples for pre-marital counselling, adjusting to parenthood/empty nest and also work with couples who are either considering ending their relationship or have already ended their relationship and want to work on successful co-parenting. Online workshops coming soon on how to strengthen your marriage, reunite the passion and communicate effectively.
Substance Use Counselling and Coaching:
If you want to change your relationship with substances or have a person in your life who is using substances in a way that concerns you, I can help. I have worked for over 20 years in the field of mental health and substance use. I offer judgement free support and tools to help. Whether your goal is complete abstinence or just to cut down and have a healthier relationship with substance use, I can assist you.
As a parent myself, I know parenting is a tough job with many complexities. I am here to support you in all the stages of parenting. From becoming a new parent, to managing tantrums in the early years, to working with teenagers as they work through the transition to independence and adulthood.
I have a specific passion for working with families who are struggling with kids and teens with substance use and/or mental health issues. I know this can feel lonely and isolating and I am here to support you and provide you with resources and strategies.
