Announcement icon I am offering in person and virtual counseling at this time. Virtually is either by video platforms or over the phone.
I have more than 15 years of providing therapy to diverse individuals from a wide spectrum of cultural, socio-economic, ethnic, educational and other diversified backgrounds. I work mostly with youth and their families, experiencing difficult life transitions, stress, anxiety, anger, substance abuse, trauma, emotional dysregulation and different forms of depression. My practice is person centered approach, trauma-informed, collaborative, anti-oppressive, strength based , multicultural, multiracial and multiethnic. I am Crime Victim Assistance Program (CVAP) approved counsellor.
I help clients to optimize strengths, build resilience and cultivate growth. I am committed to providing safe and non-judgmental environment and developing a therapeutic and trusting relationship. I work collaboratively with clients to help facilitate learning and understanding of self, to create positive change despite the circumstances that led to crisis
I bring international experience, a specialization in primary prevention of addiction, trauma informed training (DBT and CBT trained), a social justice lens and expertise with clients of diverse cultural backgrounds to my practice. I have had practices in the US, Canada and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
