Learn More About Me
Compassionate Counselling Professional
I am a Professional Member of the CCPA (processing a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) designation) with a master’s in counselling psychology. I have over 20 years of experience working with adults, children, adolescents and families. I use evidence-based practices to collaboratively create individualized treatment plans based on the client's goals and strengths and that focus on solutions.
I feel blessed to provide a safe therapeutic space, free of judgement, that fosters connection, self-awareness, mindfulness, personal growth and transformation. I take an integrated and humanistic approach to counselling that is person-centered, solution-focused, strength-based, and holistic.
