I have been a therapist for 25 years and I feel that people know what's best and what they want for themselves. Many times they don't know how to get there though and need help, support and confidence in themselves to find their way. There are so many variables that get in the way including various forms of abuse, mental health issues, family issues, drug/alcohol addiction and abuse to name a few.
I love to help clients work through their issues, restore confidence in themselves and look forward to their future! I am more of a client centered therapist and use mostly Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and use some Existential Therapy. I love it when clients tell me "I come from a dysfunctional family." My response is always the same. Show me a functional family because I'm not sure one exists, especially in our present world! The point is that every family has some dysfunction, but there various degrees of dysfunction. Some are much worse than others. Let's talk the dysfunction(s)that has affected you the most!
As a therapist it is so rewarding to help clients work through their issues and concerns and watch the positive changes start happening. We have so much available now to help clients with mental health concerns including therapy, medications, inpatient treatment and some very good outpatient treatment. If a person feels ashamed they have a mental health issue they shouldn't. It's very common and nothing to hide. Getting help is taking charge of your life!!

Tina is professional, concerned, and wants to see you succeed. She follows up and stays engaged.
Christine is very professional and knowledgeable. Offers guidance and advice that is beneficial to my personal growth within and for those around me.
A gentle spirit, she will cut the BS but still listen in the way you need.
We have a very good rapport, similar views on a lot of life’s issues, and could easily be friends. When we disagree on something, we talk it out until we each understand the other’s view. She knows how to get me to refocus when I’m simply overthinking a matter, and is helping me get past the tendency to procrastinate.
Tina is an absolutely amazing person. Who’s helped me so much in dealing with my grief and anxiety. She understands me well and gives the best advice. I highly recommend Tina. As she’s an expert in what she does.
Christine is amazing. She’s an incredible listener and everything she says feels custom. It doesn’t feel rehearsed or robotic. I trust her to really hear me and offer wisdom.
Tina has been excellent. She remembers things from past conversations and is straight forward with me. She listens and turns it into a conversation that goes by way too fast!
Tina is amazing and her approach is very good with helping deal with difficult situations.She always checked on me on days I was feeling I wS particular low and made sure I felt better by the end of the conversation. A REAL GEM of a person and an amazing counsellor.Thanks Tina for all that you do.
Excellent to speak with
Christine has been a great therapist. My schedule can be chaotic but she always responds to messages. She has been a great shoulder to turn to and cry on. Our sessions never feel like you’re in therapy but more just visiting a friend over coffee. She truly cares and it shows during the session.
