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. It is also critical to find a professional who is a good fit for you. Here's a little about me:
I approach my therapeutic work with clients through my lens as a seasoned helping professional; years of experience in humanitarian aid, international education and social services. 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 struggle with the comfort-discomfort push and pull in my humanitarian career, I have experienced how slowing down, paying attention and using creative experiential processes can help one open up to self-exploration, growth and practicing self-compassion. I bring this into my counselling with individuals (adults and adolescents) and couples and support groups.
