I have been doing my Masters degree at City University for the past two years in Counselling Psychology, and am very excited to be doing my practicum at Shoreline for my final year of school. Although I am still a student, I have worked with some of the most marginalized and at-risk populations in the city for the past six years.
I have worked for Vancouver Coastal Health since 2009; many of those years were in the downtown east-side neighbourhood where I was a part of an outreach team. This experience formed the foundation of my work and inspired me to pursue a career in counselling. I approach my work from a strengths-based, person-centred, and trauma-informed lens, with an emphasis on empowering individuals to achieve their unique goals and aspirations. I realize it takes great courage to even recognize the need for intervention and to make an initial appointment, and therefore you can expect that I will receive you with a non-judgemental, warm, and welcoming therapeutic environment. I am looking forward to meeting and working with you!
