I'M A TEEN LOOKING FOR
I teach teen girls how to:
I'M A PARENT LOOKING FOR SOME HELP.
Your teen is blowing up and locking themselves in their bathroom for hours. You notice their motivation is at 0%, their mood is really low, and they are either telling you about their problems or keeping a tight lid on the struggle.
You are concerned about their body image, self-esteem, friendships, anxiety and negative thoughts.
Are you are noticing behaviours that are freaking you out? Know that a lot of it is normal. Normal doesn’t mean easy and it doesn’t mean it can’t change.

And some of these are on shaky ground, Counselling (therapy) can be a great option. I am a psychologist that helps teens (and their parents) build bulletproof mindsets so they can weather the ups and downs of life.
A BIT ABOUT COUNSELLING
Counselling (or therapy) is a support that helps people who are facing difficult situations. It’s not meant to “fix you” and it does not mean “something is wrong” with you. It’s about offering a safe place to try new ideas, resolve problems, make changes, and move towards the life you want to live. Different therapists can help people work towards personal, relationship, athletic, educational, and career hopes and goals.
Counselling is a combination of expressing yourself, being witnessed (listened to), discovering resources, and learning new things. There will be times when you will be sharing about your experiences and your counsellor will listen. There are other times when you will be discovering things that will support you to get through difficult situations. Sometimes your therapist will share information, ideas, and resources with you.
