Michele Francis,  RCC, MA, BA,

Counsellor

You are important and what you have to say matters! Taking the first step to looking for counselling tells me your mental and emotional wellbeing matters to you. You are not willing to sit by and let challenges control you; instead, you are a fighter, a survivor, a resilient human being wanting better for yourself.  Working through challenges (be it trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship challenges, stress, or addiction, to name a few) you will be supported and encouraged in a non-pathologizing, anti-oppressive environment to create deep insight regarding the connections between past and present experiences.

While I subscribe to a variety of therapeutic approaches, I mainly work from an Adlerian (constructivist), Solution-Focused, Cognitive, a Feminist focused and a Narrative (constructivist) lens. I take a trauma informed, multicultural approach to counselling. Understanding that humans face a variety of socio-structural challenges that further compound issues.

It is important that you feel supported, heard and connected to the counsellor you will work with. To better understand if I will be the best fit for you, please take the time to look at the services I offer, and read more about me and my approach to counselling.
