Appointments can be scheduled for a variety of counseling services and issues. It may seem intimidating to ask for help or talk to a stranger about your life. You might also be new to counseling, and may not be sure if it is right for you. This is perfectly normal. Unfamiliar territory can often make people feel uncomfortable or anxious.
Let me put you at ease and help you through your difficult time. Counseling is a place of acceptance and encouragement not judgment or criticism. I see my clients as people, not as a mental health diagnosis. I also provide psychoeducation, which means education of mental health disorders and prevention.
Not every person will click with every counselor they may meet. Even if you may feel I am not the best fit for you, you will always be treated with respect and ensured confidentiality for which you are entitled to. If necessary, I can always assist with referring you to another clinician in the area.
