I am a counsellor-in-training completing my Master’s Degree in Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University. Prior to completing my Masters, I completed a postgraduate certificate at Durham College for Addictions and Mental Health Counselling and an undergraduate degree in Psychology from Queen’s University. Throughout the course of my education, I had the opportunity to work in an inpatient addictions facility, where I gained exposure to different styles of addiction counselling. Including motivational interviewing (MI) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I utilize my own journey to mental wellness through struggles with mental health to relate to clients struggles and provide an empathetic approach to counselling.
By creating a safe space in a judgement free zone, I use a holistic, trauma-informed, client-centred focus to meet you where you are at. Through confidence and self-esteem building, we work together to create goals that will increase your personal reservoir of coping skills. We can identify patterns and improve positive thinking to create a sense of wellness.
