My life has been forever altered by engaging in therapy as a client and continues to be shaped by helping others engage in their own therapeutic process. I was one of those people who did not believe that life had anything to offer me and that I simply had to accept and suffer with the difficult hand I had been dealt…. How wrong I was! It was a lot of work and it took a long time, but a little bit at a time I started to overcome my past and was shocked to realize it was actually possible to feel genuinely happy, good, positive… not that every moment is bliss. I understand that everything in life is a balance, but I cannot tell you how much I had truly lost hope or, more accurately, never had hope for a “good” life. Of course, I still have endless opportunities to continue to grow, but now I seek this growth because I enjoy the intrinsic benefits of such growth and I find it leads me to feel a sense of purpose in life….
Having realized what might be accomplished if a person has the right supports and motivations, I want to be of help to others as they work to develop the life they want and to achieve the goals they set….
Why counseling… change is simple, right? Well… not so quick. Change can sound so easy and simple. Some people are like, “If you don’t like it, just change”. My personal experience is that it can be anything but simple and it is never so straightforward. So I am here to help with this process, whether your currently on a path through a meadow of flowers, up a steep mountain pass, or through a raging battle field… it can help to have someone walk for a time with you. Even when we don’t have a great change we need to make, sometimes just having the support, having someone to bounce ideas around with is just as important to living a healthy life.
My experiences over the past 13 years in the field have led me to offer particular support in the following areas: anxiety, depression, PTSD, panic attacks, trauma history, childhood abuse/neglect, relationship concerns/conflict, domestic violence, parent child relationship concerns, parenting, caretaker support, autism/aspergers, parents of children with special needs (due to medical, PDDs, behavioral concerns, mental health, exposure to trauma, ect), life transitions and adjustments, generalized life stress, low self-esteem/self-worth addiction (alcohol/drugs/behaviors), codependency, criminal thinking, past criminal histories (including a history of violent and drug related offenses), and student truancy and dropout prevention. I use multiple approaches that vary depending on the individual needs, personality, and preferences of the client.
The most important thing is that you are ready to begin to set some goals/explore what you would like support with and that you are ready to be actively involved in this process.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Trauma and abuse
- Self esteem
I also have experience in Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Parenting issues, Anger management, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Coping with life changes, Compassion fatigue, ADHD

Skye is great. She is really thorough and very informative.
Skye has helped me tremendously over the last several months. She provided me with books, videos and ways on how to improve my emotional state. We set up goals for me to achieve and she was very tactful in her approach. I would and have recommended her to several people I know. 10/10 would seek her out for counselling again.
The best thing about Skye is that she's relatable. You're not talking to a brick wall, Skye will share her own experiences and open up to you about herself and her own mental journey which makes it so much easier to trust her. There's a lot of therapists who will stay very anonymous and I personally find it hard to open up to them. Skye is human and she embraces it - which makes her an amazing counsellor!
After a week weeks working with Skye I am starting to feel like I am getting some control back. The time and effort she puts in to her responses shows and I have never felt like just another patient.
I am very satisfied with Skye Norton. She delivers timely help that has so far been on point and effective to my situation.
I've only worked with Ms. Norton for a few weeks now, but she has always been very responsive and helpful. She was quick to communicate her availability, which made scheduling sessions easy. In between video sessions, she would send me messages with a ton of information and resources that I wanted, and I never felt like I was being forgotten about until five minutes before the call. This was my first experience talking with a counselor, and I don't think I could have asked for someone better.
