A few words about me...

I hated going to counselling.  I was maybe 8 or 9 years old and just dreaded it every single time.  How many times was she going to ask me "how did that make you feel?".  I just totally dreaded it.

 

Fast forward a few years, looking back to those Tuesday morning family outings at the therapist office, I can now appreciate what that therapist was doing.  Though at that age I may not have taken to being asked a bunch of questions, others would have totally loved it.  

 

My counselling style may be a bit different from others.  Of course, just like everyone else, I am non-judgmental, compassionate, understanding, strive to help others... you know, the same things that all the other therapists say.  But there is more.  I use sensitive humor.  I offer a no-nonsense, direct approach to the problems. I say it how it is.  My style is to challenge you.  To help de-clutter your thoughts and actions. To simplify your life.    I am highly focused on solutions.  Even if you are in the worse possible situation and feel like there is absolutely zero hope, trust me, I will find it.  And will help you find the right solutions that makes sense to you!

 

I graduated from a leading institute in Professional Counselling with specific training in Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Gestalt Therapy and others.    I have a certificate in EFT Couple Therapy from the ICEEFT,  approved facilitator for Prepare-Enrich and certified member of the Gottman Checkup Assessment for couples.  I have worked for several years as a Parent Therapist for The Children's Aid Society.  And have volunteered as a crisis worker for the local crisis help line.

I follow the code of ethics from the Canadian Counselling & Psychotherapy

Association.

 

And that's pretty much it for me.  I look forward to hearing your story!
