Natasha Saini - M.C.P.,CCC
Life is a complex journey that can be overwhelming to face at times, and it is inevitable to experience setbacks, stressful times, feel lost, stuck, lonely, and confused, and many other “negative” emotions. In challenging times, having somebody to talk to can be tremendously meaningful. Therapy provides clients with the opportunity to explore feelings and emotions and the chance to (re)discover that they are meant for significance, belonging, and unconditional love, even though life can sometimes make it hard to uncover and fulfill these needs. I would be honored to be part of your journey of self-discovery towards becoming your most resilient self.
I am a highly skilled, compassionate, and empathic counsellor and I approach counselling from a client-centered, strengths-based perspective and focus on giving my clients the means to better understand themselves as well as providing them with the practical tools to manage their stress, anxiety, and to manage their emotions.
I have worked extensively with youth with mental illness, adults experiencing stress and mental health difficulties, and families experiencing behavioral challenges with their children. I use a variety of techniques to help you discover the root cause of why you are feeling stuck, so that we can focus not just on symptoms but on healing.

I can give you tools to support you through any of these challenges. Together, we can dive deep into what you are experiencing and help you find new ways to get through some of the harder parts of life. Through this process, you may gain perspective and see things from a new angle.
I will support you through your healing process and in discovering the emotional nourishment that you need in your life. I can help you learn how to believe yourself and begin to learn what it is that you need in order to thrive. I can help you to find ways to be more authentic and honest with yourself and with those in your life.

Andrea Girvan - MSW, RSW
I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Pittsburgh in 2002 and I received my master’s degree from the University of Pittsburgh in 2006. My education and training has led me to have a diverse background in treating many different populations.
Though I treat all ages, my clinical focus is on children, adolescents, and families.
Sometimes it can be difficult for parents to determine what behaviour is a part of normal development and what behaviours are indicative of some potentially deeper issues. I am here to help guide you through some of these challenging issues. I do so without judgement and I work from a strengths - based perspective.
Even though my clinical focus in providing family - based treatment, I am also well equipped to address the needs of adults and couples. My training is also trauma informed and I’ve successfully treated adults trying to heal from trauma.
I have over 10 years of experience providing sound, evidenced based treatment to adults, children, adolescents, and families. I offer brief therapy models such as solution focused therapy and CBT. I also have extensive experience using psychodynamic approaches and with coaching mindfulness. I believe strongly in providing client centered care and welcome feedback.
I take a holistic approach to treatment and look forward to meeting with you to discuss your needs.

Feeling stuck in your life? Hoping to find peace or excitement but keep falling into old patterns? I hear you and I'm here to help. It can be hard finding the right therapist, that's why I offer a free 30-minute consultation so that we can meet face-to-face and you can decide, stress-free, whether I'm the right person to work with you.
People see me for many reasons: from grief to sleeplessness, to help rekindle love in their relationships, for help with breakups, trauma, anxiety, depression, or life transitions. I help clients to look at their lives with fresh eyes. Whatever difficulties you may be facing, together we'll discover ways for you to live your life more fully.
I've trained in Gestalt psychotherapy, EFT, mindfulness, and couples counselling. My approach goes beyond the 'talk-only' therapy and instead incorporates emotions alongside your story to get to the heart of your issue. We'll work together to get to the point of your concerns and help bring new life and spontaneity to your old patterns.

Chris Miller - CAPT
For most of us, things have to get pretty bad before we look for help. Emotional pressure can make life miserable. Inner conflicts can leave you stressed out and anxious. It can hurt your sleep, your work, and your relationships. Sometimes it feels like there’s no pleasure in life at all.
The good news: it can get better. Becoming an emotional ninja isn’t magic. It’s work. Together, we can help you better understand your emotional challenges, and put that perspective into practice so you can make choices to help you get the life you want. We work not just to help you know yourself, but to see your struggles with compassion. Self knowledge without self love is warfare.
I have extensive experience working with mental health issues including self-doubt, anxiety, depression, bipolar, narcissistic personality disorder, borderline personality disorder, and the impacts of sexual violence, childhood abuse and developmental trauma. I am committed to do my best to create a safe, inclusive space including those who identify as LGBTQI+, and members of the polyamorous, BDSM and other alternative communities.
