Welcome, I'm glad you're here!
My name is Michelle I am a Registered Counselling Therapist, a Registered Psychotherapist, a Canadian Certified Counsellor, and an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist. More information about my qualifications, credentials, professional experience, and continued education are listed on this page for your review.
I work with individuals and couples across the adult lifespan. My areas of clinical focus are sexuality, menopause, knowing yourself, intimate partner relationships, and trauma treatment (sexualized violence).
My approach to counselling is Narrative and Humanistic, where, in our relationship, you are met with unconditional positive regard, valued as an individual, and received with immense compassion. In supporting you to live your best life, I listen to your personal story, I see you as the creator of your story, and as separate from the problems you experience. I help you to uncover parts of you, tap into your strengths, access your internal resources, and step into your personal power.
While I am trained in multiple modalities, my work is integrative; I intentionally draw from various interventions to tailor sessions specifically to meet your needs. In our work we will most likely navigate past, present, and future to understand events, relationship patterns, treat trauma, and address undelivered communication to name a few.
I believe therapy is not about changing yourself, rather it’s about knowing yourself. The therapeutic process is one means for creating opportunities for introspection, reflection, and self-awareness.
I invite you to get in touch if you feel you’d like to work together.
Everyone is Welcome
