Hi there. Welcome to my page. :)
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor and have worked in varying capacities with adults and adolescents for 28 years. Along the way, I've accumlated a lot of knowledge and expertise that can be helpful to you as you face the challenges life puts in your path.
Just some of my work experience includes:
I utilize a compassionate, client-centered approach in counselling, drawing from the theories of the schools of cognitive behavioral, solution-focused, narrative and existential therapies. I want clients to feel confident that they can surmount the challenges that life presents and believe it is important to give you the tools and strategies you need to succeed. I work to ensure that clients move toward their goals in counselling in a timely and effective manner while at the same time feeling heard and understood. I believe laughter is an essential part of therapy that is often overlooked.
Client safety and professional ethics are of primary importance to me in the counselling relationship. I work with clients to explore limiting beliefs they may be holding that are keeping them from reaching their full potential.
I am a registered service provider for the Crime Victim Assistance Program, and the Residential Historical Abuse Program, a contracted service provider for the Air Canada EAP,Vancouver Coastal Health and Fraser Health Employee and Family Assistance Programs, and am a contracted trauma provider for Worksafe BC and Shepellfgi.
I'm an avid learner and am constantly building on my knowledge and expertise through professional development and research, so that I can better help you.
I look forward to hearing from you and to supporting you in your quest for personal growth. Lisa
