I am honoured that you are interested in my services and I would like to tell you a little bit about myself. I have been described as slightly non-conventional in the counselling world, which suits me perfectly, and also tends to suit youth who are trying to stand up to the force of the problems in their life. I am very comfortable working with this population, and I feel fortunate that I can connect with teens the way I do, conventionally or in a way that makes sense to them.

Diving in to our selves and our unconscious minds can yield unexpected gifts. Sometimes individuals are called to do so because of problems in their lives or symptoms that cause them discomfort, and at other times for personal growth and self-innovation. Through guided self-exploration, you can heal and grow. You can experience increased life satisfaction, a greater sense of meaning and purpose, and a broadened awareness of your past and present choices so that you can improve the ones you make in the future.

For me psychotherapy involves a deep listening, a drawing out process, and a dialogue that invites the person to understand their life's journey with a fresh insight into their challenges and successes and potential. There are often undisclosed victories and triumphs that we overlook as we consider our challenges. Acknowledging our hidden strengths is an important component of moving forward.

In psychotherapy, my focus is to build a trusting and therapeutic relationship with you so that you can safely uncover a deeper understanding of yourself, your thoughts and your feelings.

Victoria, British Columbia V8P 3V5 | 250-686-3473

My approach varies depending on what it is you are hoping to achieve from counselling. It is ok if you are not sure at first - we can work together to identify key issues and support you to determine your goals and expectations of counselling. My approach is influenced by Strengths Based Therapy (SBT), Family Systems Theory, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution-Focused and Narrative Therapy. You are the expert of your life. I will work with you to (re) discover your resources (within yourself and those surrounding you), options and strengths while working towards meaningful solutions. The process of learning to identify, challenge, and reframe distorted thoughts is a powerful skill to learn. I also take into account the ‘big picture’: the greater...(view profile to read more)

Who are you? Why did you do that? What affect did that have on you? How would you like to do that differently? Together we'll explore your thoughts, emotions, and behaviours, and gain some insight in order to increase your sense of well-being, improve your relationships, and achieve higher levels of functioning. We will pay close attention to the information your body gives us, and work at regulating the intense emotion through somatic awareness, inquiry, interventions, and reflections.

We are often influenced unconsciously by experiences from our childhood, and develop patterns of beliefs and behaviour that no longer serve us well in our present lives. In a safe environment, psychotherapy can gently explore the patterns and bring new insight and wisdom, which can lead to new behaviour, perspectives and choices. Clients can connect with inner wells of strength and creativity which can bring a new sense of peace and purpose.

My approach is to work collaboratively with clients using a holistic model of therapy which entails a blending of Eastern and Western modalities. For example, training in meditation, yoga, Tai Chi, proper exercise, a nutritious, science-based diet and maintaining proper sleep hygiene. Also, including talk therapy can then help to reveal core values and issues. Mindfulness training benefits clients in observing clearly thoughts and behaviours. Clients benefit greatly through the use of evidence based interventions by developing the skills needed to evaluate thought patterns and overcome destructive patterns.

Psychotherapy can be an enriching and fascinating experience. I work hard to create a safe environment where people can explore their lives from new perspectives. This can be an opportunity to transform your life into what you always hoped it could be, as well as an effective way to clean out the elements that are causing hurt, stress, or discomfort. Psychotherapy in my mind can be likened to yoga: it requires, patience, gentleness, effort and with those optimal results can be found.

Psychotherapy is a more long-term approach that is based on trust. When entering psychotherapy, both of us make a commitment to being honest and present in the relationship. Together, we can develop a safe space for you to explore your inner world and put words to your inner experiences. For psychotherapy, I will generally suggest that we meet once a week or once every two weeks for a number of months or even years. Psychotherapy is a process of great personal transformation.

Stress and worry are natural parts of our lives, but without the proper tools to cope effectively with these experiences, they can rule our world. Learning to identify maladaptive thoughts, feelings, behaviours and coping strategies can be the first step in redefining your life. In a safe space, with a compassionate ear, I can work with you to identify your transformation goals through a unique and tailored treatment plan.

547 Michigan Street, suite #203, Victoria, British Columbia V8V 1E2 | 250-588-4534

Psychotherapy is a counseling process which helps you understand why the things that are troubling you have happened. I will ask you to tell me your story in detail and ask lots of questions to help you gain clarity and insight. This is not a quick counseling method but aims to be a thorough one. The goal is to support you in making the changes you need to make to improve your situation. We will identify your competencies and build on them with new skills. Psychotherapy can be an exciting experience for you as you learn to live your life more as you would like to see it. You may experience some discomfort as you confront issues you have avoided but you will see positive growth in yourself.

My approach to psychotherapy is to use a mindfulness based approach with people. I support and encourage them to stay present with their moment to moment experience, learning to be gentle and compassionate with themselves, as they work through the difficulties they encounter in dealing with present situations, or the ways in which they are "triggered" into old patterns, habits or beliefs from the past.

Many of us come to counselling feeling alone, frightened, and even ashamed. This is why it is so important to find a counselor who we can trust in our most fragile moments. It is also helpful to find a counsellor who can not only relate to our problems, but can also see our own unique potential for development and growth. I work to help clients better understand and relate to their problems, and discover new ways to move forward. Through facing into our own problems like this, healing is not only possible, but it is where life naturally begins to flow.
