I currently offer virtual sessions for any one in British Columbia and work with individuals from youth (16+), young adults, to elders supporting them to better understand their experiences and themselves. Using evidence based psychological theory and personal connection we co-create a safe space to explore feelings, build self-compassion, and develop personal resources and practical tools to support living well.
My counselling style is centred around the therapeutic relationship and collaborative goal setting. Creating safety requires honesty and openness on the part of both client and counsellor. Together we explore and gain a better understanding of the thoughts, feelings, behaviours and experiences keeping you from your goals and experiencing more joy in your life.
Using evidence-based theory such as:
- Family Systems,
- Solution Focused
- and Somatic (Body Awareness) Therapy
to inform our sessions, we can work through and support your healing journey. Leveraging these therapeutic modalities, with multicultural sensitivity and a trauma-informed approach help us move towards knowingness, integration, and positive change. Connecting to your inner wisdom, building new skills, and identifying forgotten strengths and values can support individuals dealing with challenging relationships, anxiety, overwhelm, goal setting, grief, and trauma.
Over the past 20 years my work experiences from entrepreneur consultant, non-profit Director in hospice, palliative care to therapist have offered me the opportunity to journey with people through the highs and lows of life and to develop a strong ability for “being with.” I believe that through therapy people have the chance to feel seen, and heard; and to begin to understand themselves on a deeper level. With this inner exploration there are opportunities to experience more self compassion, and open space for more joy in your life – starting today.
