Counselling

I am so glad that you are here, where ever you are in your journey is the right place! I am honoured that you are considering working with me. You do make sense even if it doesn’t all make sense in this moment.

There is no finish line for mental health and wellness. The journey is life long, similar to the daily care that optimal physical health requires.  

It is normal and understandable to need support and guidance in the process of building health and wellness.

I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor based in Nanaimo, BC. I offer online counselling sessions to help those in British Columbia to start feeling better now.

Let’s connect for a chat about what you are looking for as you consider counselling. I encourage an open discussion and welcome any questions you have in order to support your decision making process. It is important that you find a counsellor that feels like a good fit!

Who can benefit from an Online Therapist (Video Counselling)?

You don’t have to figure it out all on your own.  I would be honoured to be part of your wellness journey. Contact me to discuss your goals, preferences & whether online counselling is a suitable option for you.
