Since 2009, my experience in mental health has led me to work with a wide range of issues, such as childhood trauma with men and women, sexual trauma in adulthood, depression, anxiety, addictions, and intergenerational impacts of residential schools and the '60s scoop on survivors and their families.
Making the decision to begin counselling takes courage and a willingness to explore change. Cycles of change in one's life are like seasons; unique, natural, in motion, and holds potential for growth and renew. At times, we experience periods in our lives where like seasons, are very challenging, seem slow moving, and evoke intense experiences. I appreciate having been taught at an early age how each season carries its medicines and I believe the seasons in our life also reflect this wisdom. My approach to the therapeutic process is collaborative, relational, and based on safety, trust, compassion, and confidentiality.
