Hayley supports adolescents and young adults to manage anxiety, understand emotions, and navigate transitions. Adjusting to change isn’t easy. Whether it’s changing schools, moving, or starting a new path with school or work, it can feel overwhelming. She’ll help you change internal narratives that no longer serve you and empower you to tackle any challenge that comes your way.

In sessions, Hayley creates a safe space for you to explore your emotions and action patterns. With over three years of experience, she can help you develop coping strategies and break down your thought-action-feeling process. She firmly believes that you are the expert of your experience, and she’s here to support you in becoming your best self.

Hayley approaches therapy with a warm and collaborative style. She believes that effective therapeutic relationships need trust, compassion, empathy — and sometimes a little humour — to work well. Hayley approaches sessions with open-mindedness and empathy. She employs a strength-based approach and uses modalities such as cognitive behavioural therapy, dialectical behaviour therapy, and mindfulness.

In her personal life, Hayley values self-expression, trying new hobbies, and self-care. She believes that a healthy work/life balance is instrumental to her well-being. For her, this balance includes doing something she loves to do every day. Hayley is a songwriter and musician. She also enjoys exercising, reading everything from non-fiction to comics, spending time with her two dogs, and spending quality time with friends and family.

Right for you if:

You're struggling to build healthy boundaries.
You're looking for support navigating transitions and role changes.
You're looking for functional tools to help manage feelings of anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem.

Q&A

What does good mental health look like to you?
To me, good mental health looks like many things; enjoying the things I love, coping through the things I don’t, and having self-awareness to recognize when I may need additional support.
How do you describe therapy?
Therapy is a safe space to talk about what’s going on in our lives, be able to reflect and explore the situations and feelings, our reactions, and somewhere we can build skills to live our best lives.
What is a motto or idea that gives you reassurance when you’re having a difficult time?
Progress not perfection. With our easy access and high consumption of social media and TV, comparing ourselves and our lives to celebrities and influencers can happen all the time. This is a reminder to give myself grace when things are hard, and that even the smallest thing can still be helping me move toward my goals Training:
