What to Expect

Ginger, Lemon & Honey Tea

We will work together to choose an approach or intervention that works best to help facilitate meaningful change. Some things you can expect when we work together:

  • I work in collaborative partnership with you because you are the expert of your life.

  • Counselling is a process and not a quick fix. We often require time to process and address our concerns and one session alone will not resolve an issue.

  • I work with people who have survived abusive experiences in their family or in their relationships. I have extensive trauma-informed clinical experience and professional training to work with these issues.

  • I work from a strength-based approach that encourages you to use your preexisting strengths and resilience to work through your concerns.

  • I use a variety of interventions and approaches that are customized to meet your needs. Some of the approaches are somatic focused interventions, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), Emotional Freedom Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Mindfulness, person-centered, Radical Exposure Tapping (Level 2 Advanced Practice trained by Laurie MacKinnon, October 2017), and grief recovery.

  • I help identify stuck points that may get in your way to achieving your goals.

  • We develop practical strategies that you can use in your everyday life so you can resolve your concerns when they arise.
