Welcome.

On the journey to build your family you have endured loss.

Let's talk about where we can go from here.

Miscarriage, Pregnancy Loss, and Stillbirth

You have survived an immeasurable loss. You return to a life that feels...unrecognizable. Talking about your loss with a therapist can help you to navigate the grieving process, attend to changes with your mental health, and strengthen key relationships in your life. We can also talk about trying again and coping with anxiety in your next pregnancy.

Following care from your doctor, OB/GYN, or midwife my counselling services are here to offer you ongoing support in the community.

​I support women and partners following all forms of loss including pregnancy termination.

Infertility

Months of “trying” can turn into a year or two or more... Worries start to multiply. Grief is present yet often hidden from our family and friends. Fertility treatments can offer hope and also come with worries too. Counselling can help you to develop strategies to cope with uncertainty and keep your relationships strong through this stressful season. 

If you are a client from KARMA, TRIO, JUNO or ONE Fertility I am pleased to be one of the counsellors that you may choose to work with prior to starting your fertility treatments. More information about prerequisite counselling sessions can be found on my Fertility Clients page.

It is my privilege to work alongside diverse families including couples from the LGBTQ community and

single parents by choice. 

 

​Postpartum Mood Issues

Motherhood is intense. We can feel joy, wonder, sadness, worry, and loneliness all before 6:00am!! With the challenges of childbirth recovery, sleep deprivation, feeding / nursing, and social isolation (especially during a global pandemic) it can feel as though life with baby is nothing like we thought it would be. Counselling can help you to talk about your experience of motherhood (from pregnancy onward) and to develop strategies to support mental health and the enjoyment of your baby and growing family!

   

My counselling services are delivered confidentially via phone and video.

I live in Waterloo, ON and I am delighted to work with clients locally and across Canada.

From Whitehorse to Halifax there is a place for you here.

I look forward to meeting you soon!
