Benefits of Counselling: 
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with a master’s degree in Clinical Counselling and registered with British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC). I am passionate about helping people through trauma and am signed up for a trauma-specific training program called Somatic Experiencing in order to help people who with the effects trauma can have on them. We can work on symptoms you are experiencing that may be hindering you in reaching your goals in life so you are able to reach them. 
I can help you learn new strategies to building the life you want and learn about yourself more, which in turn can help you live your most authentic life. We can unlearn old habits that are keeping us feeling stuck, depressed and not living the life we want. By learning new coping strategies and having support in building new ways of being that are more in alignment with how we want to live, the closer we come to our goals.
My job is to work myself out of a job, to help you feel like you don't need counselling anymore. This may take a few sessions, a few months, or a few years. I got into the counselling field as I had my own journey of going through the healing work and was inspired by great counsellors who supported me into my authentic self. It can be a long and arduous journey but you don't have to go at it alone. 

My Approach:
 I believe people are the expert of their own lives and will work with you in accessing your own inner strength and knowledge. When people are living as their authentic selves, people will experience more joy, wellness and less symptoms associated with stress. I will support you in finding your inner strengths, develop new coping strategies and enrich your quality of life.
My goal is to help you learn about your authentic self through learning techniques and coping strategies to help you live your best life and feeling empowered.
