I am so pleased to welcome you to Red Oak Psychotherapy and to provide a space for you to learn more about who we are and what we offer. I hope that in these pages and throughout our time together, you will find what it is you need and desire.
The journey to where you are today, to seeking a therapist and reaching out for support, can take many years and a great deal of searching. I thank you for arriving here and taking some time to look around, be curious, and get to know Red Oak Psychotherapy. It is my practice to always be open, honest, and non-judgmental as you share what is most important to you, and what it is you would like to accomplish in therapy. From the first point of contact, I endeavour to create a connection and to build a strong therapeutic relationship based on compassion, safety, and trust. Within this relationship is where the most meaningful work is likely to take place.
I work with youth and adults (ages 10+) seeking support with a variety of questions or concerns including, but not limited to: anxiety, depression, trauma, relationships and attachment, self-esteem, stress, grief, anger management, school refusal, ADHD and neurodiversity, chronic pain and illness, and identity. I am proud to be a connected and committed therapist competent in serving the needs of the LGBTTQ+ community and their allies.
You may be hesitant to reach out or are wondering whether this is the right decision for you at this time. These are valid questions that have a meaningful place in your journey. I want to acknowledge the courage it takes to ask for help, to reach out, and to take charge! As you search for a therapist, I invite you to reflect on what it is that you wish to pursue. Whether you find yourself in a new and unfamiliar space, or if you have been considering therapy for some time, I hope you will find something of value here.
I would love the opportunity to get to know you and to work together in support of your goals!
