Already during the first session, Jade gave me very helpful advice. This advice helped to transform my financial situation on the same day for the months to come. She also gave me some positive self-affirmations to do for the rest of the week that transformed my well-being and replaced negative thoughts with positive patterns. She is understanding, listens and gives very useful advice. I am a psychologist (with another focus than clinical or counselling) by education myself and can assure you that Jade is very professional and uses approved methods. You will be very happy to work with her!

Jade is amazing. She made me believe in therapy and I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for her. The healing process has been excruciating but she’s made it bearable and acceptable.

Jade helped me for the past couple of months get to a place where I can be confident in the steps I need to take to live a happier and healthier life where I can have better relationships with my mother and significant other. She was very kind, caring and understanding and I enjoyed the journey and completing my therapy with her.

Jade is such a down to earth therapist! You can truly see that she loves her job and has a love for helping others. She is a great listener and very easy to talk too. It sometimes feels like I’m just talking to a friend. Her warm and empathetic personality makes session a much safer place for me to express my feelings. The best part of working with Jade is that she believes In you and sees your potential. She had help me find an inner strength (emotionally and mentally) that i didn’t know I had in me.

I’ve benefited so much from working on my self-esteem with Jade! She’s helped my recognize certain patterns and how I can gradually shift to a healthier mindset. She’s supportive yet straightforward—I’ve learned so much and appreciate her insight.

Jade has made such a difference in my wellbeing. I don't know where I would be without her this year. Her kind and gentle way of communication is unparalleled and her expertise is very apparent.

Written by J.E. on Sep 02, 2020 after therapy with Jade for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, parenting issues, and self esteem

I highly recommend Jade. She is sweet, caring, and always makes the effort to truly listen and respond. Jade not only helped me build up the strength I needed to overcome my negative emotions but also educated me. I learned so much even with just a few months of interacting with her. She is the best and I’m so happy I found her!

I've only been with Jade for a few sessions, but I couldn't recommend her more. I've had a lot of therapists over the years, a lot of bad therapists too, and I've found that one of the most important qualities of a therapist is simply their kindness- while Jade has many other good qualities that make her good at her job, I can't understate the importance of just how nice she is. Makes me feel heard.

Jade is super helpful! She listens and doesn’t get bothered when I’m repetitive. She is very responsive and accommodating, and I like how frank she is when needed.

Jade is very responsive and kind. I feel at ease discussing my personal challenges with her. It feels like I'm speaking with a friend.

Written by J.O. on Feb 18, 2020 after therapy with Jade for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

Jade is very kind, very nice, but also not afraid to be direct and blunt when she feels it’s needed. I appreciate having her point of view of myself, as well as her thoughts on my own thoughts. She’s been an amazing help, and I’m so happy to have been paired to work with her

Work with me!
