My name is Michelle, and I am a clinic intern at Shoreline. I feel very passionate about providing a safe and compassionate space for individuals to explore their inner worlds and emotions. I am currently in my masters of Counselling Psychology at SFU, and have worked in various mental health and support positions for 8 years. I feel honored to be able to walk alongside individuals in their healing journey and commend the courage it takes to start that process.
I like to work from an emotion focused and attachment focused lens, in which emotions are encouraged and explored within the container of the safe therapeutic relationship. I believe that turning inwards and beginning to process painful and stuck emotions in the body after developing a secure and safe therapeutic relationship can be transformational and life changing.
