Master of Arts Counselling Psychology,
Registered Therapeutic Counsellor,
Canadian Certified Counsellor,
Gottman Level 1 & 2 Trained
I have completed my Masters of Arts in Counselling Psychology. As a former teacher and Mental Health Capacity Builder, I have experience working with children, adolescents and adults in diverse environments. I work from a client-centered approach focusing on building the capacities of clients through empowering individuals to make the changes they would like to see in their lives. I understand that every person is unique and has different needs. I work to understand a client’s natural strengths and will work alongside them to develop new skills and resources to support them in a way that is complementary and fitting to their lifestyle. I primarily work through eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), solution-focused therapy (SFT), narrative therapy, Gottman Method Couples Therapy, and mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR). I have a particular interest and additional training to work with complex trauma, anxiety, depression, relationships, communication skills, boundaries, mindfulness, and healthy coping skills.
I am open to working with both individuals (adolescents and adults) and couples.
