Melody’s Treatment Philosophy

I believe that with the right support, we can become more centered, resourceful, balanced and confident. We can improve our ability to be more accountable for our life, our choices, and our relationships. We can build the skills and tools needed to help us focus our energy and time on what truly matters, including ourselves. We can have the freedom to choose how we want to be in the world. It can authentically come from a place of vitality, wisdom and generosity of spirit.

I practice from an anti-oppression, justice oriented, feminist and relational perspective. I draw on my own personal experience, my background in teaching and my professional training. I believe in a holistic approach to counselling, drawing on several perspectives based on the individual needs of my clients. My intention is to provide a safe space and emotional support as you move toward your own personal growth and healing. A compassionate facilitator, I am here to encourage, support and challenge you as we work together to reach your goals.
