I have always felt called to become a counsellor. I’m naturally inclined to see the light and goodness inside people. Helping people to reconnect to that goodness, to their own ‘Self’ is part of the therapeutic journey. It is my belief that at any given time, we as people are doing the best job we can, given our circumstances.
I have often been told that I make people feel safe. Walking alongside and providing a safe container for others as they navigate a path through grief and change is something I have always intuitively known. Over the course of my life I have cultivated the ability to support people along their path towards healing.
My education includes an undergraduate degree at Simon Fraser University with a major in psychology and a minor in counselling and human development. I received my Masters of Counselling through City University of Seattle. I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (RCC # 18059).
I’ve completed additional trainings to bolster my counselling skills and knowledge. I have completed the level one certification for Satir Transformational Systemic Therapy from which I learned to to assist individuals through transformational change using Virginia Satir’s Growth Model. I am certified in Dream Interpretation in Counselling and Psychotherapy with the Alfred Adler Institute through which I have learned to assist individuals in exploring dreams, nightmares, and night terrors to gain insights into their unique life circumstances. Additional trainings include level one Hypnotherapy through The Canadian Society of Clinical Hypnosis; Sensorimotor Psychotherapy; and Sandtray Therapy using Satir Transformational Systemic Therapeutic Model developed by Dr. De Little.
It is my belief that every person has the capacity for change within. My job in walking alongside and holding space for you in your therapeutic journey is to facilitate a connection to your own inner resources to bring about your desired change.
My approach when working with clients is experiential, positively directional, and change-focused. I integrate theory from Carl Rogers, Virginia Satir, and somatic approaches. My clients can expect a therapeutic relationship that is individually-focused and sensitive to the unique histories, needs, and problems presented in therapy. I am honoured to work with individuals experiencing a variety of concerns including depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, loss, interpersonal conflict, addiction, and gender/sexual identity concerns.
As a cancer-survivor, parent, daughter, sister, and by virtue of walking this Earth I have experience in bouncing back from trauma, loss, and conflict and I bring these insights and experiences into therapeutic relationships to empathize with folks wherever they are on their journey.
