My Approach

I believe counselling is a calling, and it stems from an inner drive to support others in finding a sense of fulfillment and belonging. I feel honoured to be part of my clients' stories, and I am constantly inspired by their courage and positive intention to change and undergo personal growth.

I believe that engaging in a collaborative therapeutic process can help people live happier, healthier, and more productive lives. Thus, my goal is to provide caring, compassionate, and accepting support to set the foundation for a trusting relationship. I use a client-centred, holistic approach since I believe in the interconnection of mind, body and emotions, and in the importance of experiencing a balanced life.

I provide counselling to pre-teens, adolescents and adults

 

Areas of Expertise

Trauma & EMDR

Trauma counselling is a specialty field of psychotherapy that helps people address, process, and recover from a traumatic experience. 

Trauma is a response to an event that a person finds highly stressful. Thus, trauma is a subjective and personal experience. 

EMDR is an evidence based type of psychotherapy that allows people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress from disturbing life experiences without having to retell their stories in great detail. 

Multicultural Therapy

Multicultural counselling takes into consideration how a client's race,  gender, faith, spiritual believes, ethnicity, disabilities, social class and culture affect their experiences in the world.

Multicultural therapy focuses on looking at issues within a cultural context considering the intersection of all aspects of the self.

 

It explores the uniqueness of individuals and helps to recognize how family and cultural factors influence perceptions of self and the world.
