Regardless of your shape, size, race, religion or spiritual practices, gender, sexual identity, family structure, sexual practices or relationship structure, I welcome and celebrate all of you here!
"Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all the darkness."
~ Desmond Tutu
I realize that no two people are the same, and I tailor my therapy to meet your specific needs as an individual. I love helping people understand the things that are holding them back with an in-depth approach. After recognizing underlying problems, clients can fully realize their strengths and adjust certain behaviours and thoughts to see things in a different, healthier way.
My practice specializes in sex therapy, gender exploration and transitions, relationship challenges, anxiety, depression and processing unresolved trauma. If you are feeling lost and struggling in these areas, I’m confident that we can work together to help you rediscover what brings happiness to your life.
Through therapy, we can get you on track to leading a more fulfilling, peaceful life by equipping you with the tools you need to more efficiently and confidently manage life’s challenges.
It is never too late to change and start thriving rather than just surviving.
If you’re interested in becoming a more authentic, fulfilled you, I’d love to work with you every step of the way. Please contact me today!
About Melanie Devine, RSW, RCC
Hi, I’m Mel. I use she / her pronouns, and I acknowledge that I am a white settler of Irish and English Ancestry. I am a therapist who works from an anti-oppressive, harm reduction, trauma informed, queer, trans, kink/BDSM, polyam allied lens and am committed to creating a space that is welcoming of all people, regardless of race, religion or spirituality, sexuality, gender and relationship configurations (I realize that is a big mouthful, but important to name regardless of sentence size).
I value humor and intuition and take great joy in helping people tune in to their own inner healer while celebrating their immense resilience.
You can anticipate me showing up as my most authentic self and I encourage my clients to do so as well. I aim to create space where people can drop their masks and bring their whole self to their sessions, a place where the unspoken may be spoken. I believe each person is the expert of their own lives and I strive to minimize power imbalances in therapy the best I can; recognizing my own locations of privilege and power is a big part of this.
