Kia Ora and welcome. I am a down to earth counsellor, currently working with individuals (teens + adults) online most days and in person on Wednesdays & Fridays in Orewa, Auckland. I am originally from Canada but have lived in NZ for the past 12 years. I have a Masters degree in Counselling, along with a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling and Guidance. I have worked with young people and families in various roles in the community and in mental health services since 2003. I love to meet new people and find it is an absolute privilege to hear about different journeys and experiences people have in life.
I practice from a Pluralistic approach (not a one-size-fits-all) and collaborate with you to determine ways of working together. My therapy interests include narrative therapy, cognitive behavioural approaches, solution-focussed therapy, among others. I have also trained in Multisystemic therapy. I value Te Ao Māori but identify as tauiwi/Non-Māori.
I welcome enquiries and am available for an initial phone call to discuss your needs and to see if I might be the right fit for you. Ngā mihi nui, Shana
