I started Out of the Woods Counselling with the goal of providing individuals, couples and families with evidence-based interventions and techniques to relieve them of challenges that keep them stuck - depression, anxiety/OCD, post traumatic stress, relationship difficulties, self harm, and addictive behaviors. I have been working in the mental health field for a little over ten years now, in health care and private practice settings. I have worked with a broad range of populations, including those nearing end of life, struggling with addictions, and children and youth experiencing acute mental health crises. I obtained a Bachelor in Social Work from the University of Victoria in 2016 and then went on to complete a Master of Social Work, with a clinical specialization, at the University of British Columbia in 2018.
In addition to my university education, I have also completed post-graduate training in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Exposure Response Prevention, Emotion Focused Family Therapy, Somatic Experiencing (ITATM model), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
My objective is to support people to heal patterns of unhelpful thoughts and behaviors that are passed down through generations and break these cycles. Talk therapy certainly has its benefits, however I work hard to be creative and apply evidence-based treatment plans for each individual based on their needs. I hope you will join me as we walk this path together.
