Experience and Approach

I work with children, adolescents, and adults from various backgrounds. I have worked in various positions in the mental health field, such as: Crisis Counselling, Suicide Prevention Volunteer, and Crisis Responder Volunteer.  I have also been trained in Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (Canadian Mental Health Association), Clinical Traumatology (Traumatology Institute), Emotionally Focused Therapy (Dr. Susan M. Johnson training), and Narrative Therapy. I have an active responsibility to engage in learning opportunities in order to best support my clients.
My professional experience includes working with a wide range of therapeutic issues, including:
  • Depression*
  • Trauma and PTSD*
  • Anxiety*
  • Grief/Bereavement
  • Emotional management
  • Self-esteem
  • Cultural-specific issues
  • LGBTQIA+ specific issues
  • Life transitions
  • Issues of self-identity
  • Work stress
  • Relationship with food
  • Women’s Issues
  • Interpersonal issues
My overall approach is eclectic and I use techniques and ideas from different frameworks. Some of these frameworks include:
  • Mindfulness-based therapies
  • Bereavement/Grief Therapy
  • Trauma Focused CBT
  • Emotionally Focused Therapy
  • Solution Focused therapy
  • Culturally Sensitive and Multicultural Therapy
  • Dialectical Therapy
  • Compassion Focused
  • Interpersonal Therapy
My main frameworks are Narrative and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. My overall approach is to guide and support the client to look at the events, people, and experiences that have contributed to their story. Through understanding the history and different intersectional influences on the presented issue, the client and I will work together to process and productively find the appropriate course of action.
