Canadian Certified Counsellor
Life presents us with experiences that profoundly shape who we are. It is important to be able to navigate and explore the impact of these experiences in a caring, safe and non-judgmental environment.
At times these experiences may leave us in need of healing and compassion. In my counselling practice I strive to provide a space where each individual feels able to begin and continue this journey of exploration and healing. We all have areas of inner strength present in our moments of deepest vulnerability and therapy provides an opportunity for greater self-awareness, self-compassion and empowerment. It is an experience where change and growth are welcomed and encouraged.
To facilitate self-awareness, as well as change and growth, I use a variety of therapeutic modalities such as Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Family Systems as well as play, art and sand based therapeutic strategies. The types of modalities and therapeutic strategies used depend on the individual needs and goals for therapy.
I have a particular interest in working with children, adolescents and adults who have experienced grief or loss of any kind, whether it be loss of a loved one, loss of a job, loss of health, loss of a relationship or loss of sense of self.
