Languages: Sign Language
I am highly motivated, compassionate, empathetic, and dedicated to providing exceptional care to my clients. An experienced professional with a background of more than 15 years in the service industry, has exposed me to the needs of individuals experiencing challenging circumstances and served to cultivate a passion to help those who seek guidance to navigate the complexities of personal life and mental health challenges.
Trained in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Family Systems and Solution Focused Therapy, I emphasize a client-centered collaborative approach that seeks to ensure that each client will find a safe and non-judgmental space allowing them to feel heard, seen and supported. Clients will feel empowered to tap into their inner strengths which will help to facilitate change and overcome challenges. I strongly believe in self-compassion, being kind to oneself. “In order to love who you are, you cannot hate the experiences that shaped you” Andrea DyKstra
