British Columbia Registered Clinical Counsellor #6887
My approach to counselling is based on many years of training in psychology, education, leadership and my own lived experience. My passion for mental well-being is woven into all aspects of my professional practice whether as a counsellor, educator or leader. I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor whose approach is person centred, which means the goals, direction and outcomes of the therapy are determined by the client. I believe individuals can thrive when their physical, emotional, and mental health needs are met. This is accomplished through my own awareness of the importance of meeting people where they are at, and by approaching others with curiosity, respect and humility. Fostering a strong therapeutic alliance that is based on respect, inclusion and genuine care is fundamental to establishing a safer space for healing, acceptance and growth.
