​Virtual & In-Person Counselling Sessions



​​​If you are experiencing symptoms of Covid 19, please call to shift to a virtual appointment (to avoid last-minute cancellations).

 We are real so you can be too. 

Mental health and physical health are deeply connected.

​Those living with mental health challenges are at higher risk of experiencing many chronic physical conditions. Conversely, those living with chronic physical health conditions are more likely to experience poor mental health. Taking care of your mental health is a key part of taking care of your overall physical health and wellness. The link between body and mind is powerful.

 Our Approach 

Experience a real & relaxed approach to narrow the gap between you and your therapist. 

Laura & her associates follow 4 core values...



We pride ourselves on making you feel comfortable, at ease and ensuring you feel understood.


We go above and beyond to meet your needs. If we can't help you, we will connect you with someone else who may be able to. 


We model openness, honesty and genuineness in our approach as therapists. Connection is our priority.


We treat our clients as equals and work daily to reduce the stigma for mental health challenges and spread the message that everyone struggles at times.
