- I am registered with the Crime Victims Assistance Program (CVAP).
- I am a contract counsellor First Nations Health Authority Benefits, please inquire with your band if this applies to you/your family.
During the first session, we review confidentiality, discuss your reasons for counselling and set up a mutual treatment plan tailored to your needs.
Therapy is completely private – with the exception of certain situations – as a client, you can speak freely about things you are afraid of, things that might embarrass you or stir up other emotions.
As a counsellor, I am trained to see patterns that are good and patterns that are not working. I am trained to safety address these patterns to you, then together we can employ strategies to identify and avoid patterns that are not working.
I may have ideas or recommendations about strategies, but primarily I will help you figure things out for yourself. I can help you discover your own solutions and teach you to remember that pathway so you can find it when you need it again. I will encourage self-reflection and empower your strengths. In treatment, you get safe and supportive feedback while discovering new skills and reflections at your own pace.
Overall, therapy is an active process; this process requires courage, openness, and discipline. For example, as a counsellor I can share relevant strategies with you to overcome anxiety, however if you choose not to practice them you may not see results.
