Most notably, I am a non-judgmental and compassionate counsellor. I am known as a transparent therapist which means that I share my information with my clients - no secrets. I encourage my clients to lead their sessions, and have open and honest communication with me so we can work together.
On a professional note - I received my Masters in Counselling Psychology in 2016 and began my private practice shortly after. I work with many presenting issues and use various models of therapy. However, my specialty is trauma-informed work which I have had extensive training in, including EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing).
On a personal note - I am the member of a minority and understand the challenges that this presents, and the importance of identity. My growing up environment was not always healthy, with several family members having addictions. My life journey has had many ups and downs but all of these are a part of who I am today.
I respect that no two people are the same and each person's journey is their own!
