Choosing to seek professional help when struggling with a personal challenge indicates readiness and courage. To achieve positive change, it is important to realize you have strengths to build upon. You also want to find a professional who is a good fit for you. So here is a bit about me......
My therapeutic style is unique; integrating creative experiential techniques with talk therapy to fit your needs and concerns. I strive to o create an environment where you can explore your own uniqueness, gain deeper insight and skills for change.
I approach my therapeutic work through my lens as a seasoned helping professional (years working in humanitarian aid, international education and social services) and my lived experience. I have learned to make sense of the link between doing meaningful work and burnout. I have explored my attachment to my professional identity as an aid worker and healed from compassion fatigue. In trying to process my own experiences as a humanitarian aid worker and facing some major life transitions, I have experienced how slowing down, paying attention and using creativity can help one open up to self-exploration, growth and practicing self-compassion. I bring this experience and understanding into my counselling with individuals (adults and adolescents) and couples and facilitating therapeutic support groups.
