My name is Andriana. Before becoming a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying), my journey in the helping profession began in 2011 as a Registered Nurse (RN). Working as an RN allowed me to witness major life transitions regarding one’s physical and mental well-being. The Nursing profession promoted me on a journey of continuing my educational studies by becoming RP(Qualifying).
I work with adults and seniors from a holistic lens by providing a safe, supportive, and non-judgemental environment. Being a psychotherapist and a nurse allows me to hold space for each client by understanding you on a deeper level by openly listening to your story, creating meaning and finding your inner strengths rather than focusing on just the medical diagnosis. This in-depth understanding allows me to access a wider set of tools and skills I have acquired from my experience and contribute this wisdom to each counselling session when working with you.
I offer services for grief and loss, chronic illness and pain, caregiver stress and burnout. I can help with anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, and emotional regulation. I look forward to working alongside you on this journey.
