How I work with people

I put you in the driver’s seat and, together, we will explore past and present factors complicating your life. Using techniques from narrative to gestalt to genograms, we can find a path that moved you toward who and what and how you want to be.

With person-centered, solution-focused, and goal-driven methods, we can work together to find a way through the pain, confusion, trauma, and uncertainly. Together, you and I will leverage the tools and gifts you already have to move you forward toward your short and long-term goals.

Potential risks

Counselling has many benefits such as greater self-awareness, improved inter-personal relations, and reduced stress and anxiety. There are also potential risks. Counselling conversations may trigger strong, painful feelings and memories. Please tell me about any stress, fear, or reservations you may be feeling as we talk. If you are in crisis and cannot reach me, please contact 24-hour crisis line support at 1-888-494-3888 in BC or a 24-hour crisis line in your area.

Our goal

The goal of counselling at The Road Ahead is to support and assist you in reaching your own goals, however, your success depends primarily on your own effort, motivation, commitment and follow-through. I cannot predict and do not guarantee that you will attain a particular result and, as such, you accept and understand that results differ for each individual. Each individuals’ results depend on his or her unique background, dedication, desire, motivation, actions, and numerous other factors.
