Daytime, Limited Evenings

Being human isn’t easy; life is filled with highs and lows, worries, fears, anxieties, whys, and more. Chances are, you are searching for support. Let’s journey together as we navigate life and unpack the challenges it presents. My experience extends to various hospitals across the GTA. I’ve worked in both clinical mental health units, private practice, hospice and palliative care, and bereavement support. It would be an absolute honour to work with you. Feel free to contact me and let’s tackle life together.
