Anxiety, depression, stress, grief/loss, burnout or anger are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. During the therapy sessions you will be treated with respect and go at the pace you are most comfortable with.
In therapy you can learn to develop a new perspective on your situation and create individualized coping strategies to help you to meet your personal goals and feel more in control of your own thoughts, feelings and emotions.

As a member of the rural community, Bonnie understands the importance of mental wellness and stress management. Bonnie can provide therapy to individuals from anywhere in Ontario at flexible times, offering you access to mental health services.
Group Therapy: Throughout the year small groups will be offered to address anxiety, back to school stress, changes in families, transition planning into and out of school or work. Check the website for more information as they are scheduled.
Pandemic impact on Mental Wellness:
As we all continue to navigate through the challenges of the Global Pandemic, Bonnie can work with you to develop strategies to manage any anxious and nervous feelings that this may trigger.

Bonnie will be glad to meet with you for a phone or video appointment to address these concerns, at a time that works best for you. Bonnie serves residents of Ontario.
