Sometimes life can be overwhelming. Counselling can help you find healthier ways to cope, and a better relationship with yourself and those you care about.
As a Canadian Certified Counsellor with a Masters degree in Counselling, I am trained to help clients with a variety of concerns including anxiety, depression, relationship struggles, self esteem issues, stress, and managing life's transitions. My primary areas of practice are working with women, teens, young adults, and people with anxiety and ADD/ADHD.
In order to take care of yourself and start feeling better, you need to know what your needs are. In therapy, we can work together to come up with practical strategies to help you navigate life, and help you to connect to the people and supports around you. I can help you problem solve your challenges and come up with ways to improve your relationships, overall wellbeing, and mental health.
My approach to therapy is focused on understanding each client's specific needs and then helping to create a practical plan of action.
Each client is a unique individual, and I believe that you are the expert on yourself. I take pride in approaching therapy with this understanding, while also providing guidance and encouragement along the way.
My practice is rooted in a client-centred, strengths-based, trauma-informed perspective. I hold a Masters in Counselling degree and am a Canadian Certified Counsellor with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association.
I primarily utilize elements from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). I also provide ADHD coaching for adults and teens.
Access therapy from the comfort of your couch! For those who prefer to meet at a distance, Mia uses a video chat platform to meet with clients virtually for 50-minute 1-on-1 sessions. Telephone sessions are also available.
During our time together, we can focus on the issues most important to you.
My role as your counsellor involves creating a safe and caring environment, asking questions, and guiding the process of exploration, insight, and action.
Your role is to attend sessions and participate actively in the process.
