About Me

Happiness Life Coach🌹Registered Clinical Counsellor🌻 Results Focused

Hi I am Claire, a life coach and Registered Clinical Counsellor.

I help clients return to love❤️Focus on Career&Relationship&Self-care. 

I value our time together, and this is an investment for change. This is why I encourage forming goals that connect with your values.

I specialize in helping people identify and achieve their personal goals by coping with the issues that are causing them distress, anxiety, and stress.  

The most important factor towards creating meaningful and sustainable change is through a relationship based on a strong connection. There needs to be trust, respect and understanding. I like to offer a free 15-minute phone consultation to see if right fit for you.

I consciously incorporate curiosity, creativity and compassion into my work. I enjoy infusing art into counselling as art-related education like interior design and culinary arts. I believe we are all capable of developing meaningful lives even within struggle and hardship. I seek to work with clients to explore their concerns and strengths while supporting them in developing new skills and setting goals to achieve positive change. I look forward to collaborating with clients to find the best route to promote growth for them as individuals. I am providing support that is tailored to the client’s unique needs. My current areas of focus include anxiety, depression, anger, stress management, self-esteem, relationship, life transitions, career, culture and physical and mental health issues. I am into arts, fitness, tennis, golf, dance, music, movie and travel. I have lived in Shanghai, New York, Montreal and Florida.

During my MACP degree, I worked my practicum at Moving Forward Family Services in BC. Here I had the opportunity to conduct intakes, suicide risk assessments, basic self-report assessments for both anxiety and depression, and conducted individual, couple and family counselling sessions. I experienced a wide range of clients including children, youth, and adults, from various socio-economic backgrounds, locations, and cultural diversities. I also had the opportunity to work with clients with diverse needs (grief, depression, anxiety, trauma, personality disorders, and severe psychiatric disorders). The clients I have worked with also ranged in severity, from recently released from in-patient programs to mild depressive episodes.
