Clinical Team Lead

Biography

I have completed my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Communication and Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology, both from Trinity Western University. My therapy style incorporates many of the styles I've been trained and certified in such as Existential Analysis (EA), Emotion-Focused Therapy, (EFT) Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Therapy (AEDP) and Observed Experiential Integration (OEI).

I consider it my deepest privilege to help another bear in the darkness, with safety, warmth, and compassion, to help them see light and work towards healing. My approach to counselling is personalized, collaborative, and accepting because I believe every person is unique and brings their own set of thoughts, feelings, and perspective to their experience of life. My hope is that in our meetings you will encounter my full and authentic self so that you are able to connect to your own authentic self.. Through empathy and meeting people where they are at, I work to come alongside people and support them in their journey of connecting to themselves and their unique position towards their experience of life, to help them not only heal, but to live a life they want. My passion is to see people thriving in life by being able to fully engage with themselves, others, and the world, in a manner that is authentic and fulfilling to them.

I love music, and when I'm at home I'm either playing drums or guitar. My self-care involves playing NHL and listening to podcasts. I love spending time with my friends, longboarding, and surfing. My fav tv shows are Arrested Development, The Office, Brooklyn 99, and Schitt's Creek.
