Behind the polished exterior of many confident lawyers is often anxiety, depression, and addiction.

Endless client demands, challenging opposing counsel, and stress at home can all contribute to anxiety and depression. Stigma holds many lawyers back from seeking support.

I understand how difficult it is to ask for help when you’re the expert at solving other people’s problems. But everyone experiences challenges in life and lawyers are no different. Many people seek counselling to navigate adversity. As a counsellor and former lawyer, I have personal experience and understanding of what you may be encountering. I get “it.” I’ve been there. I help overwhelmed, stressed lawyers and their families regain their lives, and I can help you.

Counselling offers you a confidential space to share your thoughts, emotions, and ideas without judgment. It is an opportunity to better understand yourself and others, and gain clarity.
