About

As a former international teacher in Egypt, China and Korea, I bring cultural humility and a deep appreciation for cultural diversity into my counselling practice. Additionally, my learning from Indigenous peoples has contributed to my understanding of a holistic model of health; the interconnectedness, and necessary balance, between physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of one’s self.
With previous counselling experience in both private practice and non-profit agencies, my approach is collaborative between the client(s) and myself. Following the lead of the client(s), I am keen to understand the story and perspective held. In addition to office sessions, I also offer Outdoor Therapy and online sessions.
One of the primary underpinnings to my counselling approach is The Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT). In addition to Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) methods, I also incorporate mindfulness-based approaches and creative expressive therapies into my practice. I have also completed Level 1 Gottman training for the support of couples.
