Associate Counsellor

About Loretta

I believe we all go through struggles and experiences in life where we may need extra support to rise above. If you feel overwhelmed, perhaps I could be of help or a resource for you to find the steps, opportunities or solutions to overcome the obstacles you face.

I would be deeply honoured to work alongside you to help you find your road to healing and recovery. I provide an empathetic and holistic approach to building trust and open communication within our counselling relationship.

My purpose in life has always been to help others. As I pursue my career as a therapist I am currently working as an associate counsellor and have nearly completed my MED in Counselling to become a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) through BCACC.

In addition, I have completed my Bachelor of Education and Post Graduate Certificate in Special Education. My other credentials include my BA in Child and Youth Care.

Working with children, youth and families have granted me the opportunity to build positive connections using a strength-based approach and mindful thinking to help individuals regulate their emotions, problem-solve, and increase self-confidence and self-esteem.

I have supported students in the school system in my current and past career from elementary to high school. As an Integration Support Teacher, my current role allows me to support neurodiverse individuals to ensure they have a valuable, inclusive, educational experience.

Some tasks include preparing and writing Individual Educational Plans (IEPs), helping students transition to kindergarten and high school, and supporting students in their academic or life skills. I also work closely and collaboratively with the family, the school staff, and community partners like OT/PT/ SLP specialists to help with any physical, personal, or communication needs. In my previous career as a Child and Youth Care Worker I worked in the school system and community to help students regarding their social-emotional, or behavioural needs in a supportive approach including one-to-one or small group sessions. I continue developing my skills and therapeutic approach using sand tray therapy, solution-focused therapy, strength-based and person-centred methods, and Mindfulness.
