I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor, located in Port Moody, BC. I offer 1:1 private counselling and online workshops for people to step into their personal power as they learn how to both find their true voice and how to use it for a life that they truly love. I work with people struggling with anxiety, trauma, stress, burnout, low self worth, grief and loss, anger, personal growth, relationships (partners, family, friends) and other life struggles. We work to build coping skills, mindfulness/grounding skills, balance, understand negative core beliefs, nervous system regulation, self confidence, empowerment and joy!
My own personal experiences have shaped the way I approach counselling with others. My approach to counselling is client-centered and I work collaboratively with my clients to determine the approach to therapy that will work best for them. I create a strong and positive working alliance as I help people make positive changes and resolve their issues.
I believe that although we cannot change past events, we can change the impact those events have on us. It is important for me to create a safe space for people to feel comfortable discussing difficult topics that may make them feel vulnerable as I believe that everyone should feel respected, empowered, courageous, and optimistic about seeking help.
Witnessing my clients gain new perspectives and then start making more aligned choices from an empowered space is the most rewarding part of my work. When you start being a positive influence in your own life, that is the birthplace of transformation.
