Beliefs and Values
Adversity can make you flounder. You can choose to flourish. You are not alone. Help is out there. I see clients as the expert of their lives and as such my work is tailored to fit the needs of my clients. I truly believe every individual is unique, resilient and has the capacity to grow and reach their full potential given the right supports. My theoretical orientation is trauma informed and primarily Cognitive-Behavioural theory based. I strongly believe in a collaborative and client-centered approach, and we will closely work together on your journey to healing. In order to make quality counselling affordable. I offer a sliding scale if finances are a barrier.
