Life is full of many demands and stressors making it easy to feel lost or stuck. In the journey of being a person it can feel often dark, scary, and confusing. I consider it my deepest privilege to help another bear in the darkness, with safety, warmth, and compassion, to help them see light and work towards healing. My approach to counselling is personalized, collaborative, and accepting because I believe every person is unique and brings their own set of thoughts, feelings, and perspective to their experience of life. Through empathy and meeting people where they are at, I work to come alongside people and support them in their journey of connecting to themselves and their unique position towards their experience of life, to help them not only heal, but to live a life they want to. My passion is to see people thriving in life by being able to fully engage with themselves, others, and the world, in manner that is authentic and fulfilling to them.
I have completed my Bachelor in Arts in Psychology and Communication (B.A) and Masters in Counselling Psychology (M.A) from Trinity Western University and am in the process of waiting to have my degree conferred in order to register as a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) and Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC).
My therapy style is influenced by the certification and training I have in existential, experiential, and trauma-informed therapies such as Existential Analysis, Emotion-Focused Therapy with couples, and Observed-Experiential Integration. I have experience working with young adults, adults, and couples with various concerns including: depression, anxiety, identity issues, trauma, relationship difficulties, existential issues (meaning, purpose, fulfillment, etc.), shame, spiritual and cultural crisis, and life transitions.
