Associate Counsellor

About Brandi

I wholeheartedly trust that every individual has the innate ability to heal when met with genuine support in a safe, empathetic, and collaborative environment. Through a trauma-informed, culturally sensitive approach, I hope to walk alongside you on your wellness journey. A few benefits of therapy can be an increased awareness of self and others, the development of adaptive coping skills, and improved self-esteem. It can also help navigate challenging life experiences such as relationship conflict or the transition to parenthood.

I aim to foster a strong therapeutic relationship built on trust and authenticity. My approach is holistic, person-centred, and strengths-based. I draw on evidence-based techniques from emotion-focused, mindfulness, and play therapies. I take great care to provide neurodivergent and gender-affirming care, and I believe individual differences are to be respected and celebrated.

I am pursuing my Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) designation through the BCACC. I attained my graduate degree in Counselling Psychology from Adler University and an undergraduate degree at Simon Fraser University, with a major in Psychology and a minor in Biomedical Physiology and Kinesiology. My formal education and personal life experiences have provided me with a unique perspective on the complex mind-body connection. 

Over the past decade, I have worked in the community with children and adolescents, both neurodiverse and neurotypical. I am passionate about working with the next generation and am deeply honoured when I am given the opportunity to help a child or adolescent flourish. My hope is to support children and their families who have unique differences. I also believe in a collaborative relationship with parents and other caregivers to promote a positive support network to surround the child or youth.

At the start of your therapeutic journey, we will collaborate on individualized goals that align with your unique needs. My warm, gentle, and attentive nature will hopefully foster validation, empowerment and encouragement. While therapy is a temporary process, and my greatest desire for all my clients is for them to arrive at a place where they feel they no longer need me, my door is always open. I look forward to meeting you and supporting you on your path to wellness.
