Welcome to Counselling Connections!

Blue Water
Note: the start date for Calm Waters is now pending.

COVID-19 Update

In light of social distancing recommendations from the Canadian government and all professional associations I am a member of, I will not be offering face-to-face sessions until further notice. 


I have been successfully offering effective, therapeutic, cybercounselling for the past 10 years, and continue to do so in these trying times. The preferred secure videoconferencing platform I use is Vsee; Skype is an alternative, as are telephone sessions. 

I understand this is a difficult time for everyone, and I am doing everything in my power to continue to provide the same high-quality care that I always do.


You are not alone. We are all in this together.
