Description

I am passionate about supporting clients in their efforts to grow, by uncovering their abilities and strengths to overcome challenges. I have been privileged to work with diverse populations including youth, adults, students, parents, families, and caregivers as they cope with anxiety, depression, autism spectrum, interpersonal conflict, grief, life transitions, stress challenges that arise in navigating cultural identities and more. I believe that therapy is a safe place to grow, learn and achieve goals for anyone. I use a holistic approach combining evidence-based techniques tailored to you.

Summary

At LifeCycle Counselling we recognize how difficult it is to take the first step towards therapy, speak about your difficulties and explore uncomfortable emotions. We are a diverse group of therapists, many of whom have had our own mental health challenges and obstacles. We use client-centered approaches because we understand how important it is to meet you where you are. We respect differences, opinions, values, and attitudes. Many of our team members have extensive experience in dealing with a wide variety of issues and are familiar with various therapeutic modalities.
