Now as a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor, Christina gets to make that dream a reality for her clients. Many years of work with youth and young adults, obtaining a bachelors in psychology from UBC, and going through an experiential counselling program has allowed Christina to experience counselling from many angles. This has led to her belief in a holistic approach to healing and a recognition there is no cookie cutter fix. One thing she believes is universal is the need for safe relationships in order for us to grow. To create change in our lives we need a safe base to draw support from. Christina’s love of learning means that she is always looking for new courses, ideas, theories and modalities to better help her be there for her clients and support them in their growth.
But how can I help you?
Perhaps you find yourself surrounded by people, and yet still feeling disconnected from others and maybe even yourself. Do you find yourself trying to make up for that feeling in different ways? Maybe by making yourself small and unseen, or making sure you get recognized by dropping everything for others. It may even help you feel connected for a while. But this ultimately comes at your own expense of time, energy or even money. While it may look like you have it all together on the outside, something inside is missing and you know life could feel more fulfilling or meaningful. Sometimes we look outward for so long, we forget to see what is going on for us inside ourselves. I work to create a safe space for you to bring the focus back to you, see what is holding you back and where you want to move forward.
