My name is Rebecca Fairweather and I am a queer registered clinical counsellor who works primarily with trauma healing, LGBTQIA2+ identifying folks including diverse relationships, gender identity and sexuality. I have completed trainings in working with Indigenous communities in a culturally safe, trauma informed way. I also work with anxiety/OCD, addictions, and disordered eating.

I offer a safe space to explore sexuality, gender identity, and the umbrella of diverse expressions within the community.

You may be experiencing a current crisis, exploring life changes, or examining long standing patterns that you want to shift; I look forward to supporting you on this path.
