Having worked in corporate environments for many years, moving to counselling is a career change for me. What inspired me to change is my lived experiences, where I found healing from depression, anxiety, and PTSD through my counselling journey. I want to help people make sense of their experiences and walk with them in their journey toward healing. My lived experiences, professional training, and education deeply inform my work and how I connect with my clients.
I use a collaborative, person-centred approach. I am aware of the constraints and social inequalities people face, which act as both a cause of mental health issues and a barrier to receiving help. I work with those experiencing various concerns through a trauma-informed, social justice and structural systems lens. I value healing through connection, sharing and community. Growth is a lifelong journey, and I provide a judgment-free safe space for clients to explore their inner world. Compassion, authenticity, and cultural sensitivity are my practice’s underlying values.
I use an eclectic approach to meet client needs. I offer evidence-based practices from mindfulness cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), and others. Clinical experience includes working with trauma, youth mental health, intergenerational trauma, men’s mental health, anxiety, depression, intimate partner violence (IPV), BIPOC, and cognitive dissonance.
This work is profoundly humbling, and I am grateful to my clients who share their experiences with me.
