Hello! My name is Melanie, and I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor designated with the BCACC. My passion lies in supporting others in reaching their fullest potential. I view my clients as the experts of their own lives and use this to define my role as someone who is walking alongside you rather than pushing or pulling you towards something else. We will work together to stimulate positive change in your life. It may take a lot of effort, but we will do it as a team! Through therapeutic collaboration my focus is to support you in learning the skills that lead to desirable outcomes which align well with your goals. My aim as your therapist is to help you feel understood while at the same time supporting you in developing a greater understanding of yourself. In response to therapy, we will work together to in still confidence in overcoming any current and future adversities.
I am committed to providing my clients with a safe, non-judgemental environment where your concerns will be addressed with warmth, respect, compassion, and care. I have a deep appreciation for working within a multi-cultural lens which provides me with an understanding that people view their world through different lenses, and therefore experience unique internal and external worlds. While the foundation of my work stems from cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), we will pull from a wide variety of techniques that are tailored towards your needs. Within my practice, I am committed to the ongoing nourishment of my knowledge and strive to engage in unceasing professional development. It is through this example where I can continue to engage with my commitment to strengthening the health and well-being of others.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with family and friends, taking walks, dancing, and eating. My favourite time of the day is nighttime when I get to wind down on the couch, watching shows that make me smile, and completing my self-care routine.
