   Hi, I am Gabrielle! I am born and raised in the Lower Mainland and taught French Immersion for the past 10 years in the Coquitlam school district. Currently, along with private practice, I am a school counsellor working with children, families, teachers, special education assistants, and administrators. Before teaching I worked closely training first responders and office staff. I completed my Master’s of Education degree in Counselling Psychology at the University of British Columbia. My goal for counselling is to build a strong therapeutic relationship and establish a safe, non-judgmental space where my clients feel comfortable to share.
    My first experiences with counselling were as a client and what I enjoyed about the process was the ability to talk through my problems, feel supported and learn more about myself. As a therapist, teacher, and human I am all about connection and relationships. My job is to create space for you to explore your experiences while feeling connected and supported. I know each person has their unique gifts, experiences, and challenges and I am here to be your companion on the road to discovery.
   I am vivacious and live by the principle “laughter is the best medicine”. I love meeting new people and it is always a priority of mine to try to put people at ease. I love a good conversation and have experienced that give and take of dialogue in therapy as a positive thing. I’m a straight talker who is going to be honest with you always while doing so in a caring and non-judgemental way.
   My therapeutic style is client-centered and I approach my therapy with an LGBTQA+ ally feminist lens. I have experience working with children, teens, and adults struggling with anxiety and depression. I have drawn on theories such as CBT (Cognitive Behavioural), DBT (Dialectic Behaviour), EFT (Emotion Focused), and Solution-focused therapy to help guide my clients.  It’s important to me to be always growing and learning from others and challenging myself to take perspectives I may not have previously considered. I am continuing to grow my expertise as a life-long learner and am flexible in my modalities and can pivot to what best meets my client’s needs.
I hope we can meet and connect to create a plan for your healing and self-discovery together.
