Counselling

Counselling in the Fraser Valley (Chilliwack)

Have you ever wondered what to do next? Have you ever been stumped by life and felt paralyzed? You may feel caught in the pull of different parts of yourself. Perhaps you are feeling it now. There are parts of you that are more trustworthy, more essential and more core to your very being. Empowering those parts of yourself is central to my work with clients who are guided again and again in turning towards essence. Teasing these essential parts of yourself from the others often brings with it new possibilities and new directions.

With a Masters Degree in Counselling, a Bachelors Degree in Psychology and advanced training in imaginal psychology and spiritual guidance, I work with clients facing a variety of issues including:

RCC-logo-Black

A designation of BC Association of Clinical Counsellors

Relationship issues

Anxiety, Panic and Stress

Depression

Trauma

Parenting Issues

Spiritual Development/Spiritual Crisis

Life Adjustment Issues

How I work with clients

Whether you are coming to me seeking help with concerns about anxiety, depression, relationships, etcetera, my approach will vary based upon your specific goals and your specific situation. But consistently, my approach to people is a relational one. When you feel that someone is really with you, that they care about you and they can relate to your situation, you will instinctively feel less alone, less isolated, and less hopeless. When someone can see, validate and honour your experiences, new possibilities emerge. This holds true if you are struggling with a relationship, anxiety, depression or other ailments.

When you are in the company of someone who really relates, this capacity to relate also expands within you. When you are in the company of someone who is less reactive and more accepting of emotional states, you too reduce your reactivity and become more accepting of emotional states, of yourself, of others and of life circumstances. It is also possible for new strategies to emerge when relating to other people and their states. I can help with this too, but ultimately, you will be empowered to take more charge in your life and make the best of the decisions and opportunities that will emerge through our work together.
