“I am forever amazed and inspired at the strength and resiliency of those I have had the honour knowing. Engaging in life struggles leads us to a deeper understanding of who we are and what we want in life. I believe that when we begin to honour and own our struggle we can engage in a richer and more fulfilling life that we deserve.”
I believe in a collaborative approach to counselling where I will always respect and look to you as the expert in your life. I will journey alongside as an ally who will remain curious creating a safe space that is warm and welcoming to be real, raw and free from judgment, expectations or advice. I will ask some hard questions to challenge the current perspectives that are leading you.
It takes courage and strength to dig into life’s struggles and with authenticity, humour, compassion, empathy, curiosity and support; we will renegotiate a path that will foster meaning, understanding and hope for the future.
“Our job is to not deny the story, but to defy the ending- to rise strong, recognize our story, and rumble with the truth until we get to a place where we think, Yes. This is what happened. This is my truth. And I will chose how the story ends. “ Brené Brown
