When we have a tooth ache, we see a dentist. If we have an injury, we see a the doctor. Why do we hesitate to seek help for the painful burdens that block us from that meaningful life we want? 

Life Therapy was created to make high quality therapy available to more people by removing any labels or stigma and by offering affordable accessible treatment. 

Affordable, accessible and compassionate treatment is here.

About Life Therapy

The purpose of Life Therapy is not to give you a diagnosis or pathologize your life issue. Rather, we recognize that having struggles is part of being human. You will learn to identify the pervasive life patterns that cause challenges, identify how they manifest into 'stuck points' in your life and learn skills to challenge, cope and prevent future occurrences. These challenges can be understood in the context of upbringing, life experiences, social circumstances, culture and society. 

The mission in creating Life Therapy was to reduce the stigma of seeking support for mental health. Therapy can be seen as a “gym for the mind” - and sessions ought to be accessible from a financial and cultural point of view.  These values are strongly reflected in her authentic and genuine therapy approach.
