Message from the founder:
I wanted to design a trauma-informed, professional, safe, and convenient online counselling practice that you could feel comfortable using. The idea came from years ago while attending university in Winnipeg. I volunteered for an organization called “Teen Touch” where teenagers would call my land-line telephone, in my dorm room for help. These were the days before video technology, like smart phones and iPads!
Your Life Design Inc. was created for your convenience because it can happen from anywhere! Not only did I want to make seeking counselling easy to access, I wanted to make it private! Growing up in rural Prince Edward Island, Canada made me aware that sometimes services can be difficult to access, and privacy can be an issue. This service was designed with PRIVACY being the TOP priority.
The name Your Life Design came from my own lived experience as a helper for many years, yet not being able to truly understand what power I had to design the life I wanted. I have learned that no matter what age, stage, or situation you find yourself, it’s never too late to press reset. As a therapist, I think that it is only at the level by which you have explored your own darkness, can you meet others there.
I know from my many years as a helper that sometimes helpers need help too. I had passion to create a specific program especially for helpers which is why I created our signature Help4Helpers program. It was designed based on what I have observed, witnessed and personally experienced in my many years as a professional helper, as well as educating helpers in higher education.
Lifelong learning is also a central component of Your Life Design Inc. which is why we offer professional training, speaking and group programs. If asked what I would like to accomplish, I’d say, “I want to create and provide services that help people live their best life with as much peace as possible.”
