Counselling

The unique opportunity to help someone gain the confidence to flourish in their personal growth is what drives my passion and guides my approach. I appreciate each individual and their own journey, meeting them where they are at, and collaborating on a strategy to move forward. 

I believe in establishing a non-judgmental environment for us to set the tone for a meaningful and honest journey together. I will approach our conversations with respect and compassion, listening and guiding conversations to best support your needs and help you make positive strides towards your goals.
