My Approach to Helping
Hello and welcome to Sunburst Counselling! If you are here, you are likely considering finding some support for what may seem like another one of life's never ending challenges. I can support you with that. You have already taken the first step. All you need to do next is reach out and book a free consultation with me so we can discuss what it is you are looking for. If you decide I may be able to help, we can move forward and book you in for a full session.
A summary of my education and practice. I am a Registered Clinical Social Worker with the Alberta College of Social Workers and Certified in EMDR. I hold a Master of Social Work Degree from Dalhousie University and a Bachelor of Social Work Degree from the University of Victoria. I am a member of CASW (Canadian Association of Social Workers) a registered member of EMDR Canada and a registered member of EMDRIA (EMDR International Association). I have been a practicing Social Worker in Alberta for over 20 years in various capacities. I am trained in Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Ego State Therapy. I put a strong focus on client centered practice from a strength based perspective. I pull from multiple theories of practice including biopsychosocial theory, systems theory and social learning theory when determining the best therapeutic approach for successful client outcomes.
It would be my privilege to hold some space for you and to support you through further exploration of the challenges you may be facing in your life today. I look forward to meeting you!
