I currently offer virtual counselling sessions for those who prefer to meet in the comfort of their home or I offer in-person sessions in my home office. I have a Master Degree of Social Work from the University of Waterloo and over 12 years of experience in the mental health field. I practice anti-oppressive social work and provide therapy from a strengths-based, person-centred perspective. I have an eclectic style with training in Systems Theory, Motivational Interviewing, Brainspotting, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Brief Solution-Focused Therapy and Emotion-Focused Family Therapy. In addition, at a client's request, I can offer counselling using a Christian world-view in any area of need.
I am a registered member of the BC College of Social Workers and a member of the Canadian Association of Social Work (CASW) as well as the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA). I strictly adhere to the CASW Code of Ethics and believe understanding the social determinants of health within a bio-psycho-social-spiritual model is essential for providing social work and counselling services.
Life can be difficult to navigate during the best of times and having a professional, caring counsellor to guide you through your darkest or most challenging moments will empower you to find your strengths no matter your challenge.
Olive Branch Counselling strives to support you, exactly where you are at, seeking to help you find a sense of peace, victory and hope within your life. No matter the challenge we strive to help you reach your goals by providing you with the tools and support you need to do so.
