Growing up in Russia and educated in Canada, I have had the pleasure of volunteering at the immigrant center where culturally diverse and unique stories have guided me into the counselling work. Initially working with individuals of various physical, psychological, emotional and mental needs, learning about the meaning of life and finding resilience in the most difficult circumstances.
I have spent some time working with elderly and absolutely fell in love with the wisdoms and great experiences of all walks of life.
While finishing my graduate degree, my life brought me to the world of addictions treatment and while I loved the work, circumstances pulled me further into the very broad mental health generalist role where I work now for AHS. Over time trauma work became my focus and area of curiosity and continuous professional growth.
Utilizing body, attachment and EMDR approaches, with various modalities coming before those in my training, my main aspiration is to speak the same language as those I come in contact with and help tolerate and integrate what is painful in order to learn and heal and possibly even reclaim personal power through this experience.
I feel my role is to help in understanding the unique experience of each person, couple or family unit and from that, new possibilities become available. My hope is that this journey prepared me to help your unique and specific needs and to embark on the journey of life worth living.
To help balance my personal and professional life I love travelling, yoga, snowboarding, mountain biking and paddle boarding. Being in and around water, nature, animals with my loved ones fills me and recharges me in the most amazing ways.
What all the people I have encountered taught me is that when shared in a safe and non-judgmental space somehow even most painful and difficult experiences become possibilities for growth.
