Hello! My name is Amy and I am excited to connect with you through Wellin5. Throughout life we develop patterns of meeting our needs, responding to our emotions and responding to others. Expectations that others have for us may become expectations we have for ourselves and lead to living an unfulfilled life. Over time we can find ourselves stuck in these cycles that are no longer serving us and are getting in the way of living an authentic and meaningful life. This is when we may potentially experience stress, anxiety, depression, overwhelm and difficulty in relationships.
While the process of deepening your understanding of yourself can be scary, there is also space for excitement, healing and hope.
I come to this work with compassion, curiosity, warmth, and a non-judgmental approach. You are the expert on your own life, but an additional perspective may increase your understanding of yourself and your needs. Together we can acknowledge and learn about these patterns and identify the areas you see space for growth and healing.
I chose to become a counsellor as I moved through life and learned how capable humans are of change, but how many barriers there are between us and experiencing change.
I have a Master of Counselling degree as well as a Bachelor of Music Therapy Degree. Throughout the past ten years, I have been privileged to have jobs supporting individuals in settings such as shelters, hospices, schools, treatment programs and family counselling settings. I view the human experience through an attachment lens and use interventions from emotion-focused theory and narrative theory, sometimes implementing creative arts as a different form of expression. I have a strong passion for working with youth and young adults, as well as adults, couples and families.
In my spare time I recharge my batteries by spending time outside, hiking, camping, paddle-boarding, cooking, travelling and spending time with my dog, Rigby.
I look forward to connecting you as you take the next step towards living a more fulfilled life.
