There are many techniques used in individual and family counselling. At Lumina Counselling, I use the most current and effective interventions based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, within a holistic approach. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is an evidence-based non-drug type of therapy. As your therapist, I am keenly aware that one of the keys to success is the connection between client and therapist. I endeavour to build strong therapeutic alliances with my clients and then apply the most suitable technique or techniques. I strive to provide counselling sessions that are dynamic, collaborative, and results oriented. In addition, I elicit continual feedback to ensure that you are receiving premium and effective service.
I have Bachelor of Science degrees in Psychology and Biology, with an emphasis on Pharmacology. My graduate degree is a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology. My clinical experience in Psychiatry and Psychology began in 1996 and is very diverse and extensive. I am also a Registered Psychiatric Nurse and a Canadian Certified Counsellor. My training and experience allow me to assist with a variety of disorders, including the following: depression, anxiety, phobia, obsessive-compulsive tendencies, chemical and behavioural addictions, anger regulation, and stress control. Moreover, a large portion of our clientele benefit from counselling to do with marital or couples’ issues. I have been in a private practice since 2009 and have 20 years of experience in the field.
