I am committed to ensuring that every client I work with feels heard, understood, and validated in a confidential and safe place. I know that seeking therapy can be an intimidating and vulnerable process, and I want to assure you that you are not alone. Together, we will work towards finding solutions and creating positive change in your life.

As we work together, we will collaborate to help you develop skills and strategies that can empower you to achieve your goals and maintain lasting change. I truly believe that therapy is a collaborative journey, and I look forward to working with you to help you achieve your personal and emotional well-being. If you're ready to take the first step towards improving your emotional well-being, you can schedule an appointment directly on my page.

Dr LePage is one of the best therapists I've had, and trust me, I've had several. Building a rapport and connecting with your therapist is vital and she made it very easy. She is caring, responsive and also direct - which sometimes people don't know what to do with in therapy but I can vouch that it truly makes a difference if you want to be challenged to think differently, act differently and get the changes you are looking for in your mental health. Talking with her has made an enormous impact on me and I don't know where I'd be without her. She has been a blessing!
