Counselling Services

Michelle Deshaw, MEd, Registered Clinical Counsellor (#2412)

Welcome.  For over 25 years I have worked in the field of mental health supporting children, teens, and adults.  I specialize in helping people cope with Anxiety, OCD, Stress and Burnout, Relationship Issues, Self Confidence, Life Transitions, and Postpartum Concerns.

My counselling approach is rooted in an Emotion Focused, Evidence-Based method, that will empower you to express and understand your feelings, while applying the latest scientific research for your particular problem.

I enjoy supporting clients to gain deeper insight into the problem and learn tools and strategies based on their unique needs and experiences.

I am passionate about working collaboratively with clients to meet them where they are at and create a warm, safe, and non-judgemental space to process feelings and learn new ways of thinking.  My goal is to help you feel more confident and happier with your life and make lasting changes outside of therapy.

In my spare time I can be found being a soccer mom, running and working out, reading and enjoying the outdoors, and spending time with friends and family.
