At some point in our lives, we will be impacted by loss, adversities and change; this is inevitable. These challenges leave us vulnerable to internal and external struggles, which can manifest as anxiety, depression, relationship issues and even physical illness. I believe we are all on a journey towards healing, integration and connection, which can be difficult to navigate alone.
Serenity Counselling provides a compassionate, non-judgemental environment to express and understand your emotions, thoughts and behaviours. You are the expert of you, my aim is to help guide you through this journey in a collaborative, client-focused approach. Together we can learn how to confront challenges, move past traumas and develop self-compassion to enhance your life, move toward your goals and develop self confidence. I use elements of a variety of therapeutic approaches, such as narrative, attachment and mindfulness, to help you to understand why you are struggling and techniques to help you heal and move forward.
I obtained a Bachelors in Psychology from MUN and a Masters in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University. My interests are in how the body stores and releases trauma, attachment and mindfulness.
I have completed additional training in the area of shame, neurobiology of trauma, and applied behavioural analysis.
I have worked with adults and children in a variety of capacities including counselling, child youth care, developmental skill teaching and applied behavioural analysis.
