Questions

Whether you’re curious about therapy, need counselling for trauma, or would like a brief consultation, I’m here to answer your questions. Contact me to arrange an initial free consultation to answer questions and get to know how the therapy process works. A brief initial consult is an excellent way to alleviate concerns and find out if my approach is right for you.

Quality Service

I believe that every person is capable of change and growth and that each individual has the internal resources required for change. Everything you need is within. I believe that each person is deeply loved and valued as a unique individual. You are loved and cared for just as you are, unique and beautiful, apart from what you do, and, in spite of what you do.

My Approach

I provide a non-judgmental, affirming, supportive, safe environment for clients to tell their story. IFS coupled with a person centered approach and narrative practices empowers people to take charge of their own lives. I respect client values, beliefs, preferences, culture, and needs. I provide emotional support in a non-blaming, non-pathologizing environment.

Supportive Care

I provide compassionate, caring, affordable counselling to Comox Valley and Vancouver Island through in person and virtual sessions. You will find a safe and welcoming atmosphere to work through your concerns and move towards healing.

FAQ

Your counsellor will provide a safe environment for you to explore thoughts, feelings, or issues that you wish to discuss. The session typically takes place in person or over zoom with the client and therapist facing each other. Your therapist will ask questions and typically the client will do most of the talking. Think of therapy as a specific kind of conversation that allows you to see things more clearly and honestly.

I use an integrated approach that incorporates narrative therapy, family systems, psychodynamics, and mindfulness practices which are informed by IFS.

This depends on your needs and availability. Most people find weekly or bi-weekly sessions the most helpful but there is no requirement to follow a particular schedule.

I am currently working as a therapeutic counsellor in private practice and I am a professional member of the CCPA in good standing. I hold a valid Certified Canadian Counsellor designation with the CCPA. I have advanced training in Internal Family Systems with IFSCA and I hold a master of counselling degree. I am under supervision with Barb N. Aronchick-Zachernuk to ensure the best possible care for my clients.

What we talk about in session is strictly confidential with a few exceptions. I discuss client treatment with my supervisor who is also bound by ethical standards that require the same level of confidentiality. I am also required to ensure the safety of my clients and others in the event of possible harm. In other words if I become aware of a threat to you or another person in the course of treatment I am required to report it to the relevant agencies, just as every therapist in Canada is required to do.

If a client’s concerns fall outside my area of expertise I will refer them out to another therapist that deals with their specific concerns.

I have a flexible schedule and can meet clients on evenings and weekends.
