Willkommen! Bienvenue! And Welcome!  I’m Helen and in case you missed the cabaret reference, I am a big theatre nerd! I am also a Social Worker who is passionate about 

       helping people learn to live their lives with radical honesty 

            and epic bravery. I think people feel best when they

               can be their authentic selves. I strive to establish a

                    connection with clients that helps them feel safe,

                       heard, validated, and seen. I value honesty and                                transparency and strive to reflect this in my         

                          practice and daily life. I help people find hope in                              situations that feel hard or hopeless. I have 

                            been around long enough to know that no one                             gets through this life without experiencing                                    some type of distress or trauma and I truly                                     believe that everyone can use a good therapist

                         at least once in their life!

                     As a proud member of the queer community, I feel                    strongly about advocating for 2SLGBTQIA+ youth                       and persons. I am passionate about speaking up and

         fighting against homophobia and transphobia. I provide

     gender-affirming, trauma-informed counselling including medical readiness sessions to help prepare for and support after gender-affirming medical care visits. I am trained in a variety of modalities, use an eclectic style, and weave elements of different models together to best suit the person I am working with. I have worked in a variety of different settings with various populations, but I feel most at home within the Queer community. 

 

Assisting parents to deal with the stressors of having children/youth who are struggling is also a passion of mine. I have two neuro-spicy children and know how difficult it can be to parent. As a parent, we all just want what is best for our children but knowing what that is, isn’t always easy and we often face so much judgment from others. I provide support to parents and caregivers that is safe, gentle and non-judgemental.
