Individual Counselling Sessions
Counseling can help you shift your perception, and remove obstacles so you can reach your potential. You can experience the freedom of seeing yourself as a valuable and capable individual, and live that way. Accept yourself, unburden yourself and be yourself.
In individual therapy, we will design a treatment plan that helps you reach your goals. We will journey through whatever
challenges you may be facing, together.
I promise you that you are not beyond hope. I will walk with you and provide a caring, safe place where you can express yourself without fear of judgement.
Not sure if your parents really understand you? Having a hard time dealing with friendships? Wondering how to deal with feelings of depression or anxiety? Concerned about what to do after high school or how to navigate your college courses?
Being young has a unique set of challenges. It can be a very difficult and confusing time. Sometimes we are just not sure who we should talk to because our friends, let's face it, are in the same situation we are, and our parents...well, let's just say they don't always get where we are coming from.
I'd love to talk to you about anything and everything! With my experience, I have handled challenges with identity, relationships, sexuality, pregnancy, loss, depression, hopelessness, abuse, neglect, anxiety and even time management. There is probably nothing that you could tell me that would surprise me, and what is said between us, stays between us (unless you are going to harm yourself or others).
One of my main areas of specialty is woking with young adults!
I love the life stage of young adulthood because there are so many different types of adjustments that take place.
I have spent the majority of my years as a Counsellor working with young adults specifically to navigate this sometimes challenging and difficult life stage, walk through past pain and grow into healthy, capable individuals.
I work with young adults to navigate things like;
- Relationship development: Dating and Marriage
- Starting a family and Infertitlity
- College and Career Development
- Spiritual formation and Discipleship
- Living on your own
-Financial concerns and management
-Health and Wellness
- Developing your true identity
- Mental Health
- Boundary Development
- Past Trauma
- Moving towards healthier Core Beliefs
If you are a young adult in need of support I would love to connect with you!
Thoughts on Individuals within Families
I believe that healthy marriages and families are the building blocks of a healthy society. And everyone exists within relationships. In fact, it is hard to define ourselves without using a role like friend, brother, cousin, wife, daughter, husband, son or grandparent. Sometimes we feel disconnected from our spouse, confused by our children or frustrated by family dynamics. A lot of times we even find our marital roles ambiguous simply because each family has a different culture and this means we bring different sets of expectations into our marriages and families. Or maybe we grew up in an unhealthy family dynamic that we want to address and heal before we start a family of our own.
My goal in working with individuals is to address areas where healing and growth need to take place and help the individual become a capable, healthier person, who can then affect change in their family system. I believe that by being healthy individuals we impact our families and communities for the better!
Is your family going through a transition? Marriages and families go through transitional stages much like we do as individuals. This can cause a shift in family dynamics or in our marital system. Even if just one individual within the system is going through changes, it can affect the system as a whole. This could be the loss of employment or a loved one, a child moving out of the house, the addition of a baby into the home, moving out of our parents home and many other life transitions.
Whatever transitions or challenges you may be facing in within your family, you are not alone. We can face these transitions hand in hand. For some, this may mean defining culture within the home and evaluating expectations, while for others it may mean confronting more difficult issues like loss of intimacy in a marriage or marital breakdown. I will work with you to establish healthy connections or boundaries with your loved ones, and help you evaluate and reach your marital and family goals. Please note, I do this predominantly by working with women and young women who are either struggling in their marriage relationships or relationships with their family members. I truly believe that when one person in a family system grows, changes and redefines how they interact with their family members the system has no choice but to change as a result.
I work with couples on a limited and case by case basis
