Practicum Student, Master of Art in Counselling Psychology
I believe that meaningful support is one of life’s most valuable resources. As a counsellor, my goal is to journey with you and provide support to you through the times in life that can be the most challenging. By learning about your unique experiences and perspectives, and establishing a genuine and trusting relationship, I strive to help you identify, uncover, re-establish, and grow your inherent strengths that will help you to face and overcome difficulties.
I believe in an integrative approach to therapy, where each client’s present state will guide where our practice begins. Client goals are established through mutual understanding and acknowledgment. I work within a client centred, psychodynamic framework, incorporating techniques from a variety of areas, including cognitive behavioural therapy, mindfulness therapy, exposure therapy, narrative therapy, emotion focused therapy, and dialectical behaviour therapy. I also strongly value education as a means to empower individuals and families to feel confident and in control of their lives.
