COVID crashed 2020. It was fast, sudden, and thorough. Every aspect of our lives has changed in some way and sadly it doesn't look like it will go back to how it was anytime soon. In the meantime we are presented with new puzzles almost on a daily basis. How do we manage our expectations and the expectations of those around us? How do we change our behaviours to accommodate new rules of social engagement? How do we know if we are overreacting or underreacting? How do we deal with the flurry (or blizzard) of emotions we are experiencing? Where do we go next? There are so many moving parts it is difficult to not feel overwhelmed and shut down.
I can help. I offer brief, effective, and confidential online therapy for individuals, couples and families. You are not alone. We are in this together, which is such a relief. There is strength in numbers and tapping into each other as resources is where the power lies. A variety of online services are available from therapy sessions and emails to psychoeducational series focused on more general information to help you understand your brain and learn about handy tools for daily coping.
For more information, check out the new series "Love in the time of COVID".
My goal is to make mental health accessible to everyone regardless of their economic circumstances during this time. Knowledge is power and I want you to be in the know.

"Janey has been a huge blessing in my life. She has helped me through some incredibly difficult times; times when I thought there was no hope left. Her innate ability to listen - truly listen - made me feel like I was heard and that the heaviness of my situation would lighten with time and persistence. She has a gift. Multiple actually. And makes a positive difference in those she works with. Anna"
