If you’re looking for healing, growth, or support, our counsellors are here to help.
At Sage Mental Health, we truly believe that you are the expert in your own life, and that it is not our place to decide what is best for you. You bring your specialty knowledge on what has worked and what hasn’t worked into your counselling experience, and it is our job to work together to access your own inner wisdom and to help you find the best path forward.
As your counsellor, we work to come alongside you to support you in learning how to resolve, manage, or accept the various challenges that life brings. We aim to create a warm, judgment-free professional relationship where you may feel safe to explore your thoughts, feelings, memories, relationships, and behaviours more deeply and authentically, with the overall goal in mind of creating lasting change for a more balanced and resourceful life.
Whether you’re looking for a more unstructured, open-ended approach, or a more structured and stepwise therapy, we can meet you there by customizing my counselling approach to best suit your needs and preferences.
We’re here to to tailor this experience to you.
