Holistic Counselling

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

― Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of "A Course in Miracles"

Hello

Thank you for visiting my website and know more about me.

As an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) bipoc counsellor, I provided immediate telephone or chat crisis counselling/interventions to employees and family members across the country and the world. Taking care of clients by evaluating needs, assessing risks, crisis containment, and providing necessary resources to resolve challenges. I am honoured to get Clinical Excellence Award Recipient 2022, a special award to Counselors who have fully met, and gone above and beyond.

During my MACP degree, I worked my practicum at a Nonprofit organization 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 worked 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.
