Experienced Counsellor and Art Therapist
A Registered Clinical Counsellor (#14856) and Professional Art Therapist, I bring expertise, passion, and skill to my practice with adult clients of diverse backgrounds and experiences. I practice from a place of compassion, non-judgment, curiosity, and respect, and strive to facilitate each client's innate capacity for positive growth and development. I hold that the relationship between therapist and client is the primary healing factor for individuals experiencing developmental, internal, and interpersonal challenges.
My goal as a counselling art therapist is to best understand and accept each client’s inner world to help them move towards healthier functioning. I predicate therapeutic objectives on the belief that self-expression within a safe, non-threatening and accepting environment facilitates the client’s natural processes for enhancement. Providing guidance and practical tools to effect change, I help individuals improve their communication skills, address self-defeating beliefs and behaviours, and overcome obstacles to personal growth and fulfilment.
Combining person-centred therapy, emotion-focused therapy (EFT), mindfulness-based cognitive behavioural therapy (MCBT), and expressive art therapy, I provide a confidential, focused setting to help individuals strive towards meaningful, lasting change. Whether coping with issues of disordered eating, body image, self-esteem, intimacy, communication, life transitions, or work-related stress, I offer a tailored approach to exploring and resolving issues according to the individual or couple’s goals and needs.
My clinical specializations include disordered eating, depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma, childhood sexual abuse, and interpersonal relationships.
I respectfully acknowledge the Songhees, Esquimalt and WSÁNEC people on whose territories I work and live.
