Hi there, I’m Carissa,
Are you looking for support or someone to talk to in a time of stress or transition? Do you have life goals that seem unattainable or are feeling overwhelmed? I am here to listen and to provide you with a compassionate, safe, non-judgmental space as you process and work through the things that may be bogging you down or holding you back.
I began my helping journey as a Naturopath in Australia. Through my training and practice, the wholistic approach to treating the whole person included one’s mental health, which is an important piece of our whole health puzzle. Feeling that I lacked training in this area of support, I decided to further my studies to provide greater support for my clients and I quickly found my new calling, counselling.
My approach is warm, wholistic, client-centered, and culturally sensitive; working with your needs and understanding to help you navigate you.
With therapeutic approach styles encompassing elements of Person-Centered therapy, Solution-Focused therapy, Mindfulness Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral therapy, Play therapy, Expressive therapy, Experiential therapy, and Somatic therapy; we have many ways we can navigate your healing journey together.
I work with adults, youth, couples, families, and seniors, with focus areas of past trauma, stress management, life transitions, loss, depression, anxiety, burnout, and goal achievement.
I am accepting in-person and online sessions currently and “walk and talk” sessions in the summer months.
