*Do you find it hard to quiet down your mind so you can relax, sleep or focus?

*Does anxiety or trauma make it hard to function effectively at home, work or in relationships?

*Is past trauma still making it difficult for you to move forward in the way you want?
*Do you use alcohol/drugs to change your mood or numb away difficult thoughts or emotions?

*Have you put everyone else’s needs first then end up feeling exhausted or resentful?

*Do you keep things inside because you don’t want to burden others or worry they will judge you?

*Are you in need of tools and skills that help you calm down, reduce stress, feel more in control?

 Sometimes family and friends may not the right people to talk to when it comes to anxiety, trauma, ADHD, addiction or relationship issues.  You need a person outside of these loved ones to tell your stories to, who won't tell you what to do, get offended or judge. A new perspective from someone who is in your corner can make all the difference.

As a Master’s Level Registered Clinical Counsellor I work with individual adult clients who want to change, grow and make sense of their life in a safe, confidential setting. To do that you need to feel supported by a mental health professional who can challenge you and also have your back as you grow and change.
