Business Description

I am Sadie (they.them), the founder of Crescendo Counselling. I’m a queer, neurodiverse, non-binary, polyamorous, and a musical human.

I am a registered counsellor with the Verband Freier Psychotherapeuten, Heilpraktiker für Psychotherapie und Psychologischer Berater e.V. in Berlin, Germany.  Furthermore, I am a registered Social Worker in the Province of Ontario, Canada. I have a bachelor’s in social work and a master’s in arts focused on social work as a human rights profession. Throughout the years, I engaged in various professional developments and continuing education. In the past year, I achieved level 1 of the Guided Imagery and Music Therapist, and I am currently working on level 2.

I hold a bachelor of social work degree and masters of arts, social work as a human rights profession. Every year I engage in professional development and ongoing education. This year I have attained level 1 Guided Imagery and Music Therapist Trainee.

My professional background is in clinical and community social work and human rights, with a decade of experience working in hospitals, residential homes, and community outreach. During that time, I worked with addiction treatment and recovery, supporting victims of human trafficking, and at-risk youth. These days, I’m working to improve mental health care and support services for 2SLGBTQIA+ folks, especially for anyone who has felt unrepresented or unseen in traditional mental health services.

Together we can work through a variety of issues, including but not limited to:

  • Coming out and navigating family dynamics
  • Dealing with stigma and discrimination
  • Challenges in relationships and dating
  • Managing mental health issues like anxiety, depression, and trauma
  • Exploring gender identity, sexuality, and transitioning
  • Communication, consent, and boundaries
  • Navigating multiple relationships
  • Self-acceptance
  • Managing emotional challenges
  • Exploring and understanding sexual desires
  • Self-improvement and personal growth
  • Life transitions
  • Stress and burnout

I offer a free initial consultation for anyone interested in beginning a therapeutic journey with me. You can book an initial session directly with me.

I provide counselling that is grounded in intersectional feminism, queer and systems theories. Therefore I use a variety of therapeutic interventions. The most important being trauma informed care, harm reduction, and strengths-based therapy.
