Eileen is a warm, caring, and authentic counselor who enjoys spending time in nature and with family.
Currently, I have over 25 years of experience working with and providing support services to individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families. I work in the field of Mental Health with individuals who struggle with mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, grief, and relationship issues. Currently, there are long waiting lists for access to mental health services and I would like to help fill this gap by offering Telehealth Virtual services (email, video, CHAT sessions, and phone counselling services) so that anyone can access the services they need, whether they live in urban, rural or remote locations.
My background experience and training is within mental health, special needs, developmental disabilities and it was a dream of mine to create a private practice that provides services to people struggling with their mental health, and helps to build skills that allow them to be able to work towards the meaningful life they want.
