Hello, my name is Violet. I work with individuals, couples and families who may be struggling with something that they need to change, or who just need to engage in thinking differently about a problem. I am not here to judge anyone, I practice from the perspective that we all deal with things the best that we can, and when we learn better strategies, we do better. Let me help you to learn better strategies.
I am a systems therapist, which means that I consider all of the different systems that we interact with and how they help or hurt us. I have specialty in marriage and family therapy, and substance use and abuse.
I am excited to work with you, together we can help to implement new strategies that can shape your future into a more peaceful and joyful one.
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Eating disorders, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Coping with life changes

She is very patient and understanding, she lets you work through your issues at your own pace and offers an objective perspective on the information shared. She has a caring tone and often spots or guides you to the potential reason behind certain behaviours that you may not have formerly noticed.

Violeta is a great counsellor and listens to everything I say. She is always sending me messages to check up on me when I haven’t been online for a while. Violeta always sends me charts and different things to fill out to get a better understanding of how I am feeling. I am very happy to have her as my counsellor
