You may be on my profile because how you usually cope is not working right now. Sometimes we can feel 'stuck' or a 'burden' to those around us. I have a passion for working with individuals, youth, and families who are currently or have previously experienced; interpersonal conflict, anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, and issues with coping in daily life. Every client is different and I strive to work collaboratively with you to find a comfortable rhythm that best suits you. I focus on building a strong and trusting relationship together and knowing what you are getting into will help mediate those fears.
I am currently completing my Master’s in Counselling Psychology and am a member of the OSRP. I have done post-graduate certifications in; Addictions and Mental Health, Clinical Traumatology, Indigenous Studies, and various therapeutic modalities (including Motivational Interviewing, DBT, CBT, Structural Family Therapy, EFT, and IFT).
I come at this work from years as a peer support facilitator. I've sat with individuals, families, and groups during exceptionally difficult periods in their lives. What I know how to do is to sit with what is hard, to listen empathetically, to build a space of safety and non-judgement, and create an authentic dialogue with you as we get to know one another.
