Supportive Therapy for Women and the Transitions in Their Lives

I am so honoured to bear witness for you as you take time for yourself. I know how hard it is to manage everything, let alone when a new baby comes or a major change happens in your life. So, i’d like to meet your needs. As we work together, we put a plan in place and work on goals that help you get there. Our time together can be anywhere from 1 to 6 sessions or more as needed – it is important to me that you get the support you are looking for!

As i work from a client-centred and holistic place, i have learned several styles of therapy that can be very helpful:

Feminist Therapy
Narrative Therapy
Mindfulness
Attachment-based
Strength-based
Expressive Arts Therapy
Emotionally-Focused Therapy
Dialectical Behavioural Therapy
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Solution-focused

I currently provide individual therapy sessions to women, and support couples who are grieving the loss of a child. I don’t just work with mothers – I can support you in a breadth of areas too.
