I am motivated to understand and relate to people from all walks of life. I seek to support my clients in their journey of self-reflection and healing through fostering a non-judgemental therapeutic relationship while incorporating empathy, genuineness, reliability and unconditional positive regard.
I have been working in the mental health field since 2014 and volunteered for many years with CHIMO Crisis Line where I had to complete comprehensive training in counselling skills and other topics including addictions, mental health, abuse and crisis intervention. This invaluable real-life experience supporting a diverse population of individuals in distress provided me with a secure foundation to pursue and complete my Bachelors degree in Psychology and a Masters degree in Counselling Psychology.
I am inspired to make a positive contribution to the lives of the people I work alongside. It takes a lot of strength, courage and vulnerability to walk into a counselling office and I am honoured to meet my clients at whatever stage they are at. I sincerely look forward to meeting you and am humbled to be part of this process.
