How do you believe counselling can help?
I believe counselling provides an opportunity for self-reflection, different perspectives, and to discover possibilities students may not have been seen before.

Your approach to counselling:
My personal approach to counselling is motivational interviewing and person-centered. I use techniques from a variety of therapies including narrative therapy, music therapy, mindfulness, solution focused, and cognitive behavioural therapy. My goal is to guide individuals through the change process by making them feel engaged, empowered, accepted, and understood.
