Mountain View Counselling

Online counselling for LGBTQ2S+ adults in British Columbia

Is Mountain View Counselling Right for you?

For many people in the LGBTQ2S+ family, we carry shame, loneliness, and anxiety beneath our pride parades.  

We might have lost communities that provided meaning to us, whether families or faith communities. 

We’ve internalized messages that we are wrong, broken, or unloveable. 

Sometimes we mask these negative feelings with a big personality, and sometimes we isolate and hide ourselves from others. 

This leaves us vulnerable when crises occur.

I’ve been there. 

Reaching out for support is the first step towards feeling seen, understood, and connected to meaningful relationships. 

Together, we will work to move beyond shame to acceptance, joy, and true pride in who you are.

You’re in the right place if you want a therapist who doesn’t just sit back and listen. I bring warmth and humor to our 50-minute weekly sessions as we talk, plan, and feel together so that you leave each session equipped with practical skills that will get you one step closer to your goals.

When Should I Start Counselling?

Many people find it hard to know when to begin counselling. It can be a financial investment, it requires time, and it might bring up uncomfortable feelings or memories. On the other hand, counselling can be an empowering experience that reveals your strengths, gives you insight, and provides tools to improve your relationship with yourself…
