I believe that each person already has the inner resources to grow and make positive changes. But sometimes, we need some extra support accessing our resources. As a counsellor, I aim to foster a supportive, healing environment to help you connect with yourself, get in touch with your inner wisdom, and create meaningful changes in your life.
My work is largely informed by Satir Transformational Systemic Therapy, and I ground my practice in anti-oppressive values. This means that in our work together, I may offer an invitation to work with experiential activities, metaphors, imagery, and parts work to facilitate the therapeutic process. I may also invite you to consider the systems at play, whether that be the system within yourself, the system of your relationships, or the systems in broader society. I take a collaborative approach to therapy, so throughout the process, I will always emphasize choice, empowerment, and safety.
I am currently completing my Master of Counselling Psychology at Adler University to become a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC). Prior to my graduate studies, I completed a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at the University of British Columbia. I have worked in the helping profession in many capacities, including coaching, supporting older adults, and answering crisis calls from people in the community. Currently, I work as a support worker for neurodivergent adults.
Some of the areas I can support you with include:
- Emotion Regulation
- Body Image
- Relationship Issues
- Grief and Loss
