My therapeutic approach is grounded in the belief that we all have the capacity for change and continual growth. No problem is insurmountable, sometimes we just need a little help – whether we feel slightly stuck and need a push to start moving again or feel completely overwhelmed and need someone to help us see things from another perspective. No matter what you are struggling with, my aim as a therapist is to be by your side as you take on this journey of self-discovery and growth.
I have a non-judgmental and compassionate presence and I use this to create a comfortable environment and secure relationship with each client. This allows me to gently challenge you to push beyond your comfort zone and address your struggles in a new way, while ensuring you feel safe and supported. I highly value honesty and transparency and welcome feedback at any point in the counselling process.
My therapeutic style is flexible and grounded in collaboration – I recognize that each client has unique needs and requires a tailored approach. Together we will identify the issues that are most troubling for you, explore the roots of these issues, and develop a plan to help you overcome your distress so that you may live your life feeling unburdened. I often incorporate elements of Emotion Focused, Cognitive Behavioural, and Mindfulness therapies. I work with youth, young adults, and adults.
I provide counselling for concerns including:
- Personal Growth
- Relationship Issues
- Family Issues
- Trauma (Crime Victim Assistance Program certified)
- LGBTQ Issues
- Life Transitions
I have over eight years of experience working in the mental health field, including providing outreach services to residents of Vancouver’s downtown east side, conducting psychological assessments at Riverview Hospital, and offering individual therapy and career counselling groups to college students in Montreal.
I am happy to have a brief phone consultation to answer any questions you may have about the counselling process or about my approach. I look forward to hearing from you!
