Do you struggle with anxiety that affects your relationships, work, or school? Do you feel exhausted, unmotivated, and overwhelmed by everything you need to do, and don’t feel good enough? Do you wonder if you’ll ever feel like you used to? We often put our needs last, justifying this by telling ourselves we have too much to accomplish first. Not addressing your depression, anxiety, or past trauma can lead to isolation, ruin your self-esteem, and make day-to-day life harder than it needs to be. However, there are ways to navigate these personal burdens and make life hopeful again, and you don’t have to do it alone.

At New Wave Counselling, we believe in a trauma-focused, strength-based approach and utilizing evidence-based practice to help you learn how to manage stress, anxiety, depression, and heal from trauma. By creating a safe space where you are not only heard but truly understood, you can start your transformative path towards a more fulfilling life. Providing individual online psychotherapy and an individualized DBT skill program, you will learn how to change negative self-talk, manage emotions, navigate relationships.

Helping people feel like themselves again is what we love to do, and getting started is often the hardest part. We help you create a holistic toolkit to be enjoy happier, more fulfilling relationships, prioritize yourself, and feel lighter overall.
