Hi, I'm Dee Gill

With over 35 years experience of helping people, I can say with certainty that with the right guidance you have the ability to discover what is holding you back. Together, we can uncover the thought patterns limiting you and tap into your strengths.  Despite the challenges you have experienced, you can can transform your life.

At Searchlight Counselling, We Recognize:

  • Red start
    You are unique in your struggles and experiences.
  • Red start
    You need someone to listen without judgement.
  • Red start
    You are already enough and deserve to feel whole.

With the right tools and support, we help you feel more confident to handle situations as they arise. Let us help you find your way.

Who We Help

At Searchlight Counselling, we offer psychotherapy for adults, teens, young adults, and couples to help heal past wounds, break through barriers and find greater meaning in their lives.

If you find yourself wondering if things will get better, whether it’s dealing with something that happened in your past, feeling anxious about the future or your struggling to find greater meaning and connection – we are in your corner.


We specialize in therapy for BIPOC & 2SLGBTQIA+

How We Help

We believe that over time, the pressure from society, peers and parents can start to cloud the view of who you really are. We spend so much time chasing the things we believe will lead to success, only to be left feeling empty, exhausted and lost.

Our team of therapists offers the experience, tools and support to feel safe and heard while you get the help you need.

We use a three-step approach to help you move forward:
  • Red start
    We get to know you
  • Red start
    We put together a plan
  • Red start
    We help you take action
When you work with us, we make it our primary mission to offer caring, culturally inclusive, non-judgmental and gender affirming therapy to help you bridge the gap from where you are to where you want to be.
