Through my years of counselling work I have become increasingly convinced of humankind’s innate capacity for self-healing and self-realignment. I believe that, as a species, we are fundamentally equipped with the most essential, inner tools to heal ourselves and find true restoration.
At the same time, however, our natural and profound ability to address our greatest fears, challenges and self-persecutory beliefs is easily forgotten or dismissed altogether in the face of life’s many distractions and obligations. All too often we know we need a change in our lives, yet for one reason or another we stick to the same circuitous route of actions and behaviours that only serve to stalemate our greater development and growth.
This is why I do the work that I do. My role, as a practitioner, is to facilitate a quality space for you to experience meaningful realignment and clarity in your particular circumstance or situation. My job is not to “change you” or even to assume some kind of expert status in your personal affairs. It is simply to help facilitate your own restorative path that is best for you personally. My foremost goal in these sessions is to serve you by assisting you in finding the right tools and inner resources to take the lead in your own life and to experience the changes that are right for you.
I do this work in a number of ways. Some of these are drawn from current perspectives in grounded research in the behavioral sciences, while also borrowing from timeless principles that are rooted in Eastern wisdom. I value psychoanalytic and narrative models, in addition to the use of motivational interviewing, spiritual resiliency assessment, and various yogic interventions.
I espouse an approach that is holistic in nature, specifically regarding the integrity of the whole person – including their psychosocial environment – in the overall process of healing. This means that I take a careful consideration of the wider context of a person’s life rather than isolating the specific problem areas themselves. When it comes to the quest of understanding the deeper bedrock of any one individual, “keeping the curiosity” has been my trademark and guiding philosophy. As such, a significant part of my therapeutic work is to encourage my clients to develop and maintain a healthy curiosity about themselves throughout their entire life.
Guided meditation and deep relaxation are important components in my sessions with clients, and I thrive on facilitating spaces of stillness as part of the genuine therapeutic process.
In the meantime, most of my work is in the following areas:
- Relationships and parenting
- Existential crises
- Transcending limiting beliefs and problematic thinking
- Stepping into empowering perspectives
- Finding re-alignment with healthier worldviews
- Developing a sense of vision
- Healing old wounds
- Rediscovering an authentic state of being
- Dissolving fears while embracing authentic transformation
- Connecting with inspiration
As a client, you can expect a professional commitment on my part when it comes to examining and exploring the particulars of your situation, while likewise maintaining complete confidentiality regarding the content and personal information that is shared. Furthermore, my practice is grounded in a set of personal ethics, as well as those held by the BC College of Social Workers.
I am a Registered Social Worker with the Province of British Columbia, and I hold Bachelor’s Degrees in both Social Work and Metaphysical Science, as well as a Master of Social Work degree. I am also currently a Doctor of Divinity candidate, with a unique research interest in spiritual maturity and resilience.
If this seems like a good match for you, then just give me a shout and let’s get a good conversation going.
