Sometimes life feels hard.


Are you healing from a loss or traumatic event?
Feeling distressed or disconnected in your relationships?
Or maybe just struggling to manage the demands of daily roles and routines?
Maybe you are worrying about your kids - their behaviour, their grades, their anxiety, their future.
You may be feeling like you are alone in the feelings you are having, and wondering if there is anyone who can help.


We’re glad you’re here. You are not alone and there is help.

Feeling Seen

We all have a need to be "seen" and understood by important people in our lives. It is through our close relationships that we come to better understand ourselves.

It is impossible to distract and numb ourselves away from only negative emotions. When we numb pain we also numb joy.

Telling Our Stories

We all long to tell our unique stories... not just the stories that we think others want to hear. We need to feel safe to share the parts of ourselves that we may be ashamed of.
