Hi there, I'm Karina! I am a registered Clinical Counsellor with the BCACC. I did my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at Ramapo College of New Jersey and completed my Masters in Counselling Psychology at Adler University in Vancouver, BC. I specialize in relieving depression and anxiety, coping with stress and trauma, and coping with Mood Affect Disorders. As someone who has had personal experiences with mental health, felt unheard and sat in the client chair, I strive to be someone who can listen to peoples unheard voices.
My approach to therapy is collaborative, direct and gentle, as I work with clients to bridge the gaps between cognition, behaviour and emotion. I aim to create an open space, with a of collaborative work, humour and honesty. I try to channel positivity and optimism in every occasion that arises and embrace openness to different people and new experiences.
The first step is always the hardest one to take, so thank you for being so brave. It’s okay to feel awkward or guarded so take counselling at a pace that feels right for you! My hope and goal is to make sure that you are receiving the best support!
