David Portesi Counselling and Consulting

As a Registered Clinical Counsellor, I call on over 20 years of experience in the healthcare field and training in both public health and counselling psychology. I use a holistic approach that recognizes that good mental health is not just the absence of mental illness or distress, but is also rooted in healthy relationships, a fulfilling home and community life, purposeful work and career options, and overall physical and mental well-being. I enjoy working with individuals and couples navigating life transitions. These include being in a new or struggling relationship, coming out to loved ones, starting a family, balancing life and work demands, planning for and starting a new career, or entering retirement, among others.
