My approach to counselling is one of curiosity, compassion, and connection--with these three factors in mind, I work together with you to explore your particular concerns. I have a background in health and wellness, mental health and addictions, and have worked with hospitals, private clinics, and rehabilitation centres.
I have personally experienced the benefits of counselling, and am committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. When I am not working, I run and practice yoga. I also have an interest in the healing benefits of the arts, and enjoy playing music and attending the theatre. I am from Vancouver, Canada.
Selecting a therapist can be a daunting task. Research has consistently shown that the relationship between you and your counsellor is the most important catalyst for change. Searching for someone who is qualified is important, but more importantly it should be someone you feel comfortable with.
Any relationship takes time to build, and begins with a first step. With me, this starts with an initial consultation to determine if we are a good fit. If we are, then we will ideally book weekly 50 minute appointments. Clients commonly continue sessions for 10 weeks, with more or less sessions depending on your specific needs.
The first session will be a chance for you to share what brings you to counselling. You may be stressed, anxious, depressed, or struggling with relationship issues. Whatever your particular concern may be, you can benefit from counselling:
- Gain insight and awareness
- Learn new coping strategies
- Resolve outdated patterns
- Explore new ways of being
- Improve your relationships
