About the Counsellors

Sarah and Whitney view counselling as an individual’s opportunity for personal growth. They believe those seeking counselling are the experts of their own lives and they merely act a neutral third party without judgement to be sounding board or a cheerleader. Together both parties can put the puzzle pieces together to make sense of questions and move forward.
