Welcome to Revive Counselling Services. I'm so glad you've taken the time to seek out counselling and hope I'm able to assist you in your journey. It is my passion to help you heal!
Over the last 10 years working in the mental health field, I have served hundreds of individuals struggling with issues such as anxiety, depression, anger, addiction, relationship problems, chronic pain, abuse, self-esteem, and trauma. It is my joy and privilege to journey with each person through their struggles and pain and to see the amazing growth that results from each person's counselling process.
Many clients have shared that they feel heard, understood, and greatly helped during our sessions. I believe that having gone through my own process of counselling and working through my painful life experiences has equipped me to really get what's helpful and not helpful in therapy.
I know the frustration and hopeless feelings of being stuck in pain and anxiety and not getting anywhere. Yet, I also know that there is healing on the other side, and this is what I want to offer you!
I am a Clinical Traumatologist and hold a Master of Arts Degree in Counselling Psychology from Trinity Western University. The Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association has certified me in good standing as a Canadian Certified Counsellor.
My approach largely draws from sensorimotor psychotherapy, internal family systems, direct neurofeedback, EMDR, and mindfulness-based approaches. All of these approaches I have found to be revolutionary in working with many stuck issues. Much of my practice is informed by the latest research in interpersonal neurobiology.
