Mission & Approach
Hello and welcome! I am a counsellor who values warmth and authenticity at all times with an emphasis on taking creative approaches to solving problems. As a client, you will find a comforting and safe environment for self-exploration, leaving each session feeling understood. I want to help you see things from a new perspective and find the strength and resiliency to tackle any challenges life can throw at you.
While I incorporate a wide variety of theories in my work, I often lean on ideas from narrative and somatic therapy. Narrative therapy sees us as the protagonist of our world, with the storyline changing depending on the contexts we find ourselves in. We want to find what makes your story unique and how to use your strengths to overcome challenges. Somatic therapy values the connection between our body and mind. The body does a great job of holding onto stress or tension without us even noticing it, making us feel that there’s something wrong that we can’t pinpoint. Through and other somatic interventions, we can better understand our bodies and recognize when we feel tense.
Finding the right counsellor can be an intimidating process but it doesn’t have to be! If you believe I may be a good fit or wish to know more, feel free to reach out for a free consultation session.
