Description

Hello there! Do you struggle with anxiety, motivation and being a part of a world that doesn't seem like it was designed for you? Have you been considering counselling for some time now? Are you feeling unsure or anxious about taking those initial steps?

 My name is Melissa and I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor. I work from a variety of therapeutic approaches drawing upon Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. Alongside these theories, I strongly value your lived experience to guide our work towards change and acceptance.
