Registered Counselling Therapist, MA, CCC, RCT-C
Hello, thank you for taking the time to check and see whether we would be a good fit to work together!
I received my Masters of Counselling Psychology degree from Athabasca University in September 2020. Prior to that I obtained a Disability Self-management Certificate from Dalhousie University, and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from Saint Mary’s University in 2014. I am currently a Registered Counselling Therapist Candidate (RCT-C) with the Nova Scotia College of Counselling therapists (NSCCT). I am also a professional member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association.
I would describe myself as warm and client-centred. I strongly believe that you are the expert of your own life. I work from a feminist trauma-informed lens and I believe that creating a safe and non-judgemental space for you to open-up is critical to begin the healing process. I tend to incorporate aspects of Solution-Focused Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, and Narrative Therapy into my practice.
I have experience working with youth and adult survivors of sexual abuse, I learned a great deal from this experience and loved my time working with youth! My areas of interest include trauma and PTSD, anxiety/depression, and self-esteem issues.
I have always had a passion for helping others; I have several years of experience volunteering in non-profit environments. A few of the organizations I have been involved with include Ronald McDonald House, Best Buddies, and on a sexual violence crisis line.
On a personal note, I just moved back east in September 2020, and I could not be more excited to be back! I am a homebody and enjoy spending quality time with family, friends, and of course my cat!
Please feel free to book a free 30-minute consultation where we can discuss how I can best support you in your healing journey.
