Description

Overcoming my own personal struggles solidified my desire and passion for social work. I consider it a privilege to work with others coping with similar difficulties in their lives, and guiding them in their journey of overcoming their own struggles.

I have obtained a bachelor of Social Work from Ryerson University, and a Master of Social Work from the University of Toronto, with a specialization in mental health. This education has provided me with the tools and techniques to tailor my counselling approach to my client’s unique needs.

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.
