I am a bi-lingual and bi-cultural clinical counsellor, mental health clinician, and university instructor with extensive experience and remarkable results. My broad range of professional qualifications has enabled me to work in a range of mental health services within the public and private sectors.
I am a passionate educator, a published author, and a versatile clinician specializing in working with children and youth, families, couples, and groups. The scope of my clinical work includes complex trauma, risk assessment and crisis management, and multicultural counseling. I have extensive experience working with women in abusive relationships, children living in the midst of violence, and people with physical and psychological traumas.
My approach in counselling is relational, contemplative, spiritual, and intimately connected to the humanistic philosophy of living. I view life as a process of overcoming perceived limitations and growth toward peaceful relationships with ourselves, others, and life difficulties. Fostering resilience, acceptance, optimism, wisdom and compassion as pillars of healthy living, I empower my clients to use life challenges toward personal and interpersonal awareness and growth. Engaging my clients on intellectual, emotional, and spiritual levels, I help them examine the profound consequences of their beliefs and expectations on their psychological wellbeing and on their relationships.
I am wholeheartedly committed to serving my clients and have been recognized with a number of provincial awards for community service and contribution to the field of counselling. Using a variety of therapeutic models I tailor treatment to the unique needs and personality styles of my clients. Clients experience me as compassionate, respectful, empowering, practical, and efficient. My sessions are engaging, thought provoking, inspiring, and fun. I work passionately and am dedicated to continuous personal and professional development.
