I am a Licensed Counselling Therapist Candidate offering bilingual, in-person and online counselling services to adults and adolescents in the Sackville, Dorchester, Memramcook, and Greater Moncton areas. My office is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Sackville, NB - a short 5-minute walk from Mount Allison University.
I have over thirty years experience working with adolescents who struggled with low self-esteem, peer pressure, academic stress, bullying, social anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, grief, and self-harming behaviours. I opened my private practice to extend my training and professional experience to adults and to provide a more tailored approach to personal growth.
My approach to counselling stems from a deep compassion for the human condition. My mission is to help adolescents and adults become more attuned to their true self and to help them decipher core issues that inhibit their growth and their sense of well-being.
I draw on various evidence-based methods, techniques, strategies, and interventions within a client-centered and holistic framework. To help clients increase their self-awareness, I have trained and hold certifications in Guided Imagery, Meditation, Focusing, Paths into the Unconscious, and Reiki II.
I strongly believe that trust is the foundation of an effective client-therapist relationship. Sincerity and mutual respect increase the likelihood of a successful therapeutic journey. Therefore, I will strive to hear, validate, and understand you. Confidentiality is at the core of my ethical beliefs and my professional obligations.
Our Therapeutic Journey
Your life-story, the pain that you feel, and your daily struggles are unique to you. Therefore, your therapeutic journey with me will be unique as well.
Whether you prefer an in-person or an online session, I will provide a welcoming, safe, empathic, and non-judgmental environment. Together, we will address the barriers to your emotional well-being such as the feelings of anxiety and depression that overwhelm you, the inner turmoil that you are feeling during this life transition, the procrastination that impedes your ability to move forward, or the sadness that clouds your everyday life. While we address the obstacles that decrease your sense of purpose and your inner strength, we will negotiate a suitable course of action to ensure that you quickly begin to see progress in your everyday life.
