Our counsellors help empower individuals, couples, and families through issues by supporting and empowering them to make positive personalized changes in their lives. Their mandate is to promote healthy families through education and support as well as to provide counselling for individuals and families experiencing problems in living. Each counsellor uses unique specialized techniques to help each person manage their stress, redirect disturbing emotions and set goals for themselves.
As team lead, and a Registered Psychologist since 1997, my focus has always been to work in a non-profit agency where there is access for all. I work with families, individuals, couples, children and youth. My greatest teachers are those who sit in my office. Their talents, abilities and skills in facing their problems-in-living have taught me a great deal in how to sit with and help them as they travel their healing journey with trauma, failed relationships, anxiety, depression and childhood issues.
I have a Master’s in Counselling Psychology. My practice focus is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I also implement solution focused, and client centered strategies. My approach focuses on supporting clients in in identifying their ways of coping, exploring new skills and processing experiences developing a positive sense of self. My goal is to create a safe, trusting, and welcoming environment for all individuals.
My personal and professional outlook is open, inclusive and adaptive to each individual, with values of unconditional acceptance, empathy and sincerity. Each person and each session are unique and yet always entirely relatable in their humanness. Working with your strengths, struggles and insights, we will collaboratively deepen our understanding of where you’re at, where you’ve been and where you’d like to go. Some of the orientations with greatest influence in my practice include Compassionate Inquiry, Person-Centered Care and Internal Family Systems.
My foundational approach is person-centred, as I believe in the innate ability of individuals to heal within a trusting, non-judgmental environment. Utilizing other evidence-based interventions from CBT, ACT, and SFBT is also an important component of my practice. My goal with every client is for them to feel understood, empowered, and to co-create a treatment plan that facilitates movement towards their goals. I have experience working with all age groups, and I work mostly with individuals experience depression, anxiety, trauma, and relationship challenges.
