Testimonials

I have been seeing Kelsey for well over a year now, and I have yet to have a session with her that wasn’t beneficial in some way. Kelsey is not only a truly kind, empathetic listener, but also offers authentic, objective and knowledgeable feedback with genuine concern for my well-being. Working with her has allowed me to gain a greater sense of self and to develop important strategies to navigate difficult situations. I trust her completely, and I highly recommend her.

I’ve been seeing Kelsey for over 2 years and I can truly say from my experience in counselling and mental health in general that she is THE best. She loves what she’s doing and she’s a master in counselling skills.

Kelsey has been a tremendous help with learning about self care and for working towards my larger life goals. She is a great listener and I have come to trust her as a person who genuinely cares, understands me, and who works with me to develop successful strategies and tools as I learn to navigate through life on my own. That being said, she is also professional and very knowledgeable in her field. I recommend!
