Journey Counselling

Victoria, British Columbia

I provide a down-to-earth, non-judgemental space where you can tell your story, learn to identify and engage your strengths and come up with solutions. My approach varies depending on your unique needs and circumstances. I work within a framework that is holistic, practical, strengths-based, and takes into account the complex world in which we live.  

What is possible for you?

  • Identify and use your strengths, discover options and resources to address what you're struggling with
  • Develop greater self-awareness and improve your relationship with yourself and others
  • Gain insight and a new perspective about the issues you are facing
  • Learn to identify and reframe ‘unhelpful'/distorted thought patterns and notice the positive impact this has on your feelings and behaviours and ultimately your relationships
  • Become aware of strategies, tools and resources (information/education, community resources) to increase your knowledge, skills, and ability to face life and its challenges in the best way possible.

     


About Me:

I provide counselling in my home, accessible for those with mobility challenges, in the Cedar Hill area of Victoria, British Columbia. I am a counsellor, a Registered Social Worker with a Master of Social Work degree with seventeen years of experience working with people experiencing a wide variety of challenges. There are many profound transitions we experience throughout life and we need not face them alone.

I am a mom of young children, a spouse, daughter, friend, sister and granddaughter. I enjoy working with adults of all ages. A significant aspect of my practice experience involves counselling individuals affected by a variety of issues including self-esteem, stress, grief and loss, life transitions, mental health issues, disability including acquired brain injury, chronic health issues and terminal illness including, not limited, to dementia. I have a special interest and vast knowledge and experience working with family caregivers. 

Issues I am Passionate and Knowledgeable about:

  • Stress Management
  • Anxiety & Depression
  • Grief & Loss
  • Relationships & Interpersonal Communication
  • Caregiver Burden & Burnout Prevention
  • Disability and Chronic Disease
  • Acquired Brain Injury
