My Approach to Helping
I founded Real Life Counselling out of the desire to help you reduce the issues and pain that come with the inevitable issues life can present. I have a team of trusted Associate therapists that work with me. We understand things happen in life, and that sometimes things don't go the way we planned. We also that sometimes we can feel 'stuck', and unsure of how to work through these life situations.
Our role with you, is to "teach" and encourage you to try, practice, and feel good about some new ways of thinking, and behaving. Your therapist's positive encouragement, accountability, and gentle feedback gives you the chance to talk through what's going on in your life. We help you with supportive, neutral, and professional feedback that brings clarity and focus for you.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
From a teen I knew I wanted to become a Psychotherapist, but never quite knew how I'd pull it all together. Inside me I had a burning desire to run my own business, and to work with individuals to help them overcome obstacles and barriers that were getting in their way of helping them live a beautiful life.
Over the years I've worked through my own social anxiety, so I know what it's like. On a daily basis I am a "product of the product", meaning I apply the skills, tools, and techniques I "teach" my clients, to my own life.
Being able to work with clients from all walks of life, and watch them feel great about the progress they are making is the most rewarding feeling as an individual, and therapist.
I am proud to have grown Real Life Counselling across Canada in British Columbia and Ontario. We have offices in downtown Vancouver (Burrard & Davie Yaletown), as well as in Ontario in Mississauga (Hurontario & Matheson), Port Credit, and Toronto.
