Divorce Coaching

As your certified Divorce Coach and collaborative partner, we can help you organize your thoughts, understand your options, and save you money on legal fees. Together, we will get you back to your best self, feeling in control and clear-minded so that you can divorce with confidence.

Couples & Family Therapy

Communication is the hardest issue in a relationship to heal on your own. Once there is a communication breakdown, the friendship starts to deteriorate and intimacy gets lost in the chaos. We will help the relationship heal from the hurt and help you find your way back to each other.

Individual Counselling

With a focus on positive communication and self-discovery, we aim to facilitate a path towards healing and new beginnings for those affected by life changes through compassionate support and guidance.

Life Coaching

We will help you find a sense of purpose, develop your creativity, manage your stress, and overcome bad habits that are holding you back from reaching your goals.
