Giving some prior thought about your expectations for counselling is helpful, especially the roles for helper and client and their working alliance, and your goals for the process. It's important to choose a counsellor that best fits you. I see my role as 'on your team', yet not the manager or coach. You are the expert on you. I prefer a ‘level playing field’, so I endeavour to keep things open and transparent as possible. Since I think you already possess skills and strategies to tackle challenges ahead, our work together is about uncovering strengths, strategies and making a game plan together so 'wins' are truly yours.
A Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) trained in brief solutions-focussed therapy, I also employ an eclectic blend of modalities such as feminist, narrative therapies, multicultural and spiritual (existential) counselling. My roots in feminist philosophy and inclusivity come from a masters in gender studies prior to a masters of counselling psychology.
Informed by Eastern wisdom traditions as long-time practitioner of meditation, self-inquiry, and self-awareness, I use these in practice along with with breath work. mindfulness and focusing. A lived experience of working in many cultures informs a culturally sensitive approach to those living in a cross-cultural context.

Professional Connections

Lisa is an insightful and very competent counsellor. Her gentle approach is highly trauma-informed. I have had the pleasure of working with Lisa in service of women, especially those affected by abusive relationships. Lisa is a counsellor of high integrity with a myriad of tools to share with her clients. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone seeking to support.
