I’m Cassandra and I absolutely love working with both individuals and couples in a solution focused, client centred way, which means I am a part of your journey but you are the leader. I enjoy working with a variety of different ages and identifying factors.
Are you feeling stuck? Alone? Afraid? Are you bogged down, burnt out, exhausted during the day but restless at night? Are you struggling with symptoms or addiction, or struggles in your relationship? Do anxiety and depression impact how you work, live and be in your relationship?
If you find yourself returning to painful destructive relationships, having low confidence and negative self-talk, and are discouraged or “down and out” about life - I can help!
Regardless of how low you are feeling now, no situation is hopeless and no one is helpless. I will support you to get to a place of happiness, well-being, self-love and ultimately help you to thrive in your daily life, relationships and love the skin you’re in. I can’t wait to meet you!
I’ve been in private practice for years and have over 10+ years in the mental health field helping professions. My scope includes folx experiencing addiction, relationship issues, eating disordered behaviours, depression, anxiety, grief and loss.
Couples Counselling: Areas I cover in couples counselling is chronic fighting, issues with communication, lack of excitement or drive (the twilight zone), codependency, healthy intimacy, infidelity, rebuilding trust, attachment concerns and rebuilding the connection from the ground up. It’s very important to me to take on an attachment focused lens, which is why I use a mix of Gottman method, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy (PACT). Relationships are so incredibly important, and I would love to work with you and your partner to enhance and support yours.
Education and Credentials:
I hold a Bachelor of Arts from York University in Sexuality, Gender and Women's Studies and a Masters Degree in Social Work from Wilfrid Laurier University.
I’ll help replace negative energy with positive, enriched lifestyle adjustments and
healthier coping mechanisms.
