Supporting students of Millpond Academy, Individual Counselling and Couples Counselling
We often face immense pressure and challenges that leave us feeling lost or unsure of ourselves. We may feel emotions we can’t wrap our heads around making us question how we are going to keep pretending that everything is ok. While I believe that everyone carries the capacity to heal within themselves, it can feel impossible to access our personal strengths. When this occurs, we may need a compassionate and non-judgmental therapist to assist us.
Over the last five years, I have offered support across the lifespan with a focus on members of the 2sLGBTQIA+ community. Within my work, I draw on my joint Honors Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, and Sexuality Marriage and Family Studies from the University of Waterloo and my current Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University. My education supports my ability to address emotional or mental roadblocks, family challenges, stigma, and discrimination faced by the 2sLGBTQIA+ community in individual, couple, and group settings.
It is not easy to talk about things we have or have not been able to do. Within this space, I hope to offer you and your loved ones a safe space where you feel heard and seen through sharing your experience and exploring your inner strengths to take control of your story.
