As a Registered Social Worker and the founder of Aworie, I focus my personal counselling practice on LGBTQ+ issues, body confidence, trauma/PTSD and self-esteem improvement. Some of the areas I address in individual counselling include how to maintain and strengthen self-confidence, enhance self-compassion, and improve relationships.
I understand that seeking help can be difficult, so I endeavour to make my clients feel as comfortable as possible. In doing so, they are able to explore the challenges they face in a safe and supportive environment.
I am passionate about providing affirming space for LGBTQ+ folks and helping them feel seen and heard. I have experience working with LGBTQ+ individuals of all ages. As a member of the LGBTQ+ myself, I'm keen to address difficult queer and trans topics like, intersectionality, disclosure readiness, relationship difficulties, and more.
I have experience working with clients who want to lose or gain weight, as well as those who experience weight stigma or discrimination. My approach is trauma-informed, client-centred, racially/culturally sensitive, and strengths-focused.
My hope is to support my clients as they strengthen the relationship they have with themselves. By addressing the issues that contribute to negative self-talk and internalized body shame, we can work together to build a foundation of self-acceptance and empowerment.
I am a therapist who uses an integrative approach guided by psychodynamic therapy, emotional focused therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, and neuro-linguistic programming. I work to help clients identify their deep-rooted core beliefs, develop strategies to alleviate their negative symptoms, and strategize ways to move forward into a more fulfilling life. My goal is always to provide hope and healing for my clients.
