Designation and Experience:
I am a Certified Canadian Counsellor (Qualifying) and have completed a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology in March 2020. Prior to my transition into counselling, I obtained the Chartered Accountant designation.
My practice is focused on promoting health through the use of the Bio-Psycho-Social approach to wellness. My goal is to help my clients develop and achieve meaningful goals. Along the path of life, each person will encounter roadblocks and challenges - my mission is to help my clients determine the best strategies to remove them.
When walking with my clients on the path toward healing and growth, I tend to use tools based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Internal Family Systems. In addition, alongside mental health, I also believe in the vital importance of both physical health and healthy interpersonal relationships. While working together, these three aspects of health will be discussed and improved upon.
What inspires you?
Growth and holistic well-being. I believe that no matter our background or where we currently find ourselves in life, each one of us is capable of making meaningful progress toward improved mental, physical, and relational health. I am constantly inspired by the people around me who face up to the challenges of life despite the setbacks that inevitably arise. Though the path toward holistic health and well-being is not always easy, it is surely a worthy one! I salute anyone and everyone who has courageously chosen to walk that path!
What are your proudest accomplishments?
I am most proud of my decision to leave a ‘safe’ career in order to follow the intuition that I was meant to be a counsellor. Though the process was a challenge, my intuition proved to be correct. I have found a home at the Eckert Centre as a counsellor, and I couldn’t be more proud of myself for that!
What are your Hobbies and Interests?
Outside of work, I love physical activity. Whether it’s paddle boarding, climbing, cycling, running, or just simply going for a walk. On most days, you can find me outside somewhere. I also love to read books and listen to podcasts that focus on health-related topics. Throughout my life, I have accumulated a wealth of knowledge and practices that can be used to promote healing and growth – I can’t wait to share them with you!
Why do you think people should choose Eckert Centre?
The Eckert Centre is staffed with capable and compassionate professionals that focus on positive outcomes for the clinic’s clients. The longevity of the office speaks for itself. I can’t recommend the Eckert Centre enough to anyone seeking healing and growth.
