"You helped me see the light
when I was in a dark, dark place"
Rachel Galbraith, MA, Registered Psychotherapist
As a mother of two young children I know how easily we can slip into overwhelm. As a former Child and Youth Worker I have a deep appreciation for the developmental needs of children and parents at all stages of life.
For over two decades I have been dedicated to exploring mental health and counselling. I have been in the role of client and counsellor and know the deep, life changing work that can happen within this dynamic.
I have found that people come to counseling at different stages in their lives for a whole host of reasons. Regardless of what is making you consider counseling at this time I want to assure you that you are not alone.
I view the counseling relationship as a co-creative dynamic between an expert (you!) and a compassionate and non-judgmental guide (the counselor). While I have no experience living your unique and complex life, I do bring to the relationship a map and tools to help you navigate the different emotional terrain you may find yourself. Together we will work to draw out your natural and learned strengths, and tap into your inner wisdom to help move through this difficult season of your life.
