Life can be very difficult to navigate at times. We can feel overwhelmed and unsure of what direction to take, or how we can cope with big changes. Counselling can be a safe space where we can feel seen and heard, as well as a place where we can explore our feelings and forge a new path for ourselves.
As a psychologist, I strive to provide a supportive and welcoming place where all clients can express their concerns, and work towards finding a meaningful way forward in line with what is most important to them. Feeling supported and understood is a vital part of counselling, and I am guided by core values of empathy, non-judgement, and curiosity to understand and create space for clients to share their experiences. I practice from a collaborative, trauma-informed, and strengths-based perspective, and work with clients to identify what areas they find are challenging, as well as inner strengths and resources that have helped them navigate challenging roads before.
I have been privileged to work with a diverse range of clients over a variety of settings, including healthcare, post-secondary, and private practice. There are many approaches to counselling, and I incorporate a range of methods to best suit clients and their needs, including: person-centered, solution-focused, acceptance and commitment therapy, and cognitive behavioural therapy. Feedback is something I value, as I understand how different things work for different people and that a change in approach can make all the difference.
I approach counselling with warmth, genuineness, humility, openness, and a collaborative spirit. When I’m not in the office, I can be found enjoying the company of friends and family, trying new cafes and teas, playing interactive games, listening to music, and taking reflective walks in natural spaces.
I offer my services in English, and I have a particular passion for helping clients find meaningful connections to their career.
