Giving some prior thought to what your expectations are for counselling is helpful. How do you imagine these roles to be? Since the working alliance is significant, it’s important to choose one that fits for you. As a counsellor, 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. 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.

My roots in feminist philosophy sprang from a masters in gender studies, before doing a masters of counselling psychology. I am a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) trained in brief solutions-focussed therapy, though I employ an eclectic blend of modalities such as feminist, narrative therapies, and multicultural and spiritual (existential) counselling.

I am informed by Eastern wisdom traditions as long-time practitioner of meditation, awareness, self-inquiry and contemplation techniques. I use these in group work. Having the lived experience of working in many cultures abroad, I also offer culturally sensitive counselling to those living in a cross-cultural context, newly arrived or otherwise.
