Announcement icon I offer both in-person and online. Online allows clients to stay where they feel comfortable and for who live outside of Nanaimo.
There are many reasons individuals seek counselling. Clients seek counselling when they are struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, or when they can't stop the negative self-talk about their self-worth and abilities. Individuals seek counselling when they are feeling stuck, worried, upset, frustrated, uncertain about their purpose, or experiencing a significant life event. Do you want to break patterns that are not serving you, step into your authentic self, and live from a place of abundance?
In a session, we will bring mindful attention and gentle exploration to your concerns and work to uncover your internal resources. We will examine limiting beliefs and suspicions of self that drive unwanted patterns and bring compassion to those places in order to return to the truth about self and others.
My passions lie in the intersections of hope, curiosity and courage. Hope is the seed that tended can blossom into a life transformed. Curiosity is the spark that lights the path, and courage is the strength to take the journey. My own experiences have cultivated the importance of a safe, judgement free and compassionate environment for exploration.
