My experience as a counsellor working with adults of all ages has taught me that within each individual lies courage, strength, resiliency, beauty, and the desire to love and be loved and connected to both others and oneself. Sometimes, though we find ourselves lost in the fog and need to be supported, encouraged, and challenged to get ourselves and our lives either back on track, or onto a new and more fulfilling, rewarding, and meaningful track.
I work from a person-centered, strength based, solution focused, and cognitive behavioural (CBT) approach. What this means is that I work alongside my clients and help support them to uncover or re-discover their inner strengths, their inner resources, and their inner courage as they work through the things in their lives that are getting in the way of feeling joy, fulfillment, connection, and peace.
I am committed to meeting my clients where they are at and working with them at their pace. I am committed to providing a safe, non-judgmental, and caring environment for my clients, which I believe is essential throughout the growth and healing process. I am also committed to being authentic and genuine with my clients, and am prepared to challenge them if it will help remove any barriers hindering their therapeutic process or personal growth.
