Counselling for Young Adults

Who I help:

I help young adults who want to be confident and happy but feel weighed down but anxiety, stress, and depression. Young adults come to be because they are dealing with:

  • relationship problems
  • career uncertainty 
  • university/college stress
  • suicidal thoughts
  • addiction
  • grief
  • cutting/ self-harm
  • identity concerns

How I help:

In counselling sessions, we’ll figure out who you are, who you want to be, and how to get there! We’ll also:

  1. Build trust and connect
  2. Discuss and explore the problem(s)
  3. Build on strengths and skills that help stop the problem(s) from affecting your life

Young adults often comment that they feel comfortable talking to me because I am young, genuine, friendly, and non-judgmental. They also find that the questions I ask help them to find solutions.

Why I help:

I know from my 9 years in the mental health field and my own personal experience that when anxiety, stress, and depression take over your life it makes it hard to live each day. So many times we are weighed down by the “shoulds” of life… I “should” know what I want to do with my life, I “should” be in a relationship, I “should” be happy by now. I think the “shoulds” can cause a lot of stress and depression when we are not living up to how we “should” be. I love helping young adults explore this and figure out who they are and what they want from life.
