Well, hello there! I'm glad you stopped by.
Have you looked into counselling before, or is this your first time?
Some may have thought about it but thought they could rely on talking to their friends and family about how they might be struggling, that counselling's a luxury.
I see it as an investment. It's an opportunity to have a new set of objective ears, not to mention someone who is always focused on YOUR best interests. This is important because we can see the potential when we feel open and not judged. We can also be unaware of patterns what we need to work on because we can end up only sharing bits and pieces with people we know, maybe because we're worried about their reaction to what we want/need to talk about.
Looking into counselling is a brave step (even if it doesn't feel like it) and it's important to me that you get the most out of it.
The next step is choosing a counsellor who works for and with you.
Some of you may feel that you should've tried counselling a long time ago, but I really believe that when you're ready, you're ready.
Some of you may have been told by someone you know "You need to see someone" and not really knowing if it's a criticism and you should be embarrassed or it's an encouragement to seek more focused support. Either way, navigating what you want to do can be overwhelming when you've become aware.
I have experience supporting clients with:
- day-to-day stress management
- life transitions
- isolation & loneliness
- communication issues
Working with me, you'll have someone who:
- will provide you with a safe, objective perspective
- will listen to you to learn which coping tools can work for you
- will help you communicate what you need from those around you - including, boundaries (this is a scary one for most people to contemplate taking on)
- will make sure to take the time so that you understand different concepts at play
- isn't afraid to ask (v.s. assume) what you are looking for from me (e.g., Do you need to vent today? Do you need a sounding board today? Do you need to be challenged today?)
Starting my counselling career in crisis counselling helped expose me to so many ways we can give and receive support. I've worked with the experts (my clients) through issues ranging from, coping with loneliness to thoughts of suicide and many struggles in between. Beyond this, my passion has always been around supporting and advocating for people learning to recognize their own expert status as a patient or caregiver as they navigate the healthcare system, which I have experienced firsthand for over 30 years.
