My Approach to Helping

My work has focused on clients experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, boundary setting issues, managing expectations, self-esteem, stress and burnout, spiritual issues, substance abuse, and dissociation. Anxiety and depression have increased dramatically in the past few years, particularly during the pandemic, and it is my passion to assist clients in navigating the new “normal,” by listening to their stories and struggles.

I lean towards an integrative and trauma-informed theoretical approach to counselling, to gain and maintain a therapeutic relationship with the client. I strive to create a safe, judgement free, and inclusive environment. My areas of particular interest include art and expressive arts approaches - where creativity can be utilized to encourage healing and growth - interpersonal neurobiology, attachment theory, narrative therapy, internal family systems, solution-focused, and strengths-based therapy and I will incorporate the modality that fits the client and their situation.

I also use a collaborative approach; allowing clients time and space to explore, gain insight, and process, while leaving them with resources and tools to utilize and work on between sessions. I believe in empowering people so that they are able to reach their full potential through a deeper understanding of themselves and others.

More Info About My Practice

Rooted Counselling services came to fruition with the idea of helping individuals establish a strong foundation in one's self, in family, and in community, where peace, confidence, and joy can be found. I am passionate about self-care - not just physically, but emotionally, mentally, and spiritually as well. I enjoy “sitting in the moment” with people and working through their stories and it is my passion to help clients bring change to debilitating deep-rooted thoughts, beliefs, and behaviours. I work primarily from a strengths-based approach. Meaning, that I want to set my clients up for success and that looks different for each individual. Maya Angelou once stated that, "Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it." By empowering my client, we can work together to further their goals and make choices that are of interest to them.
