My Style/Approach to Coaching & Counselling
I was born and raised in Brantford and have dedicated my career to helping people in my community overcome life’s challenges and lead happier and healthier lives.
What makes my approach to coaching and counselling unique is how I bring my personal and professional backgrounds together. My experience with overcoming personal struggles as a young adult, coupled with my education and passion for helping others’ are all reasons why I am able to bring such a unique and dynamic skill set to my practice.
I use a holistic, solution and client focused approach in helping my clients, and organizations, not only achieve goals and make positive changes, but learn how to better navigate life’s obstacles. It is my hope that my clients not only learn how to feel more inspired each day, but also how to be more accountable and honest with themselves in a gentle and empathetic way.
As an ‘Empath’ or HSP (Highly Sensitive Person), I treat each client and organization as an individual and tailors my approach to them as exactly that, individually, looking at their personality, how they ‘operate,’ their self-narrative (the words one uses/how someone ‘speaks to themselves’), their current relationships, communication style(s), patterns, habits and behaviours. It’s my belief that if a professional does not consider all of these aspects of their clients’ lives, they won’t be able to assist them in producing positive, ‘real’ and long-lasting changes.
I have a background as a clinician (counsellor/clinical therapist), and have also worked in vocational rehabilitation and career coaching/consulting. I hold a Master of Arts in Counselling from Yorkville University and a Bachelor of Arts (Hons. Double Major – Social Sciences) from Wilfrid Laurier University.
I also aim to soon register with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) and specialize in helping clients’ experiencing anxiety and depression.
