More about Roxy

Relational. Inquisitive. Dignity Driven.

I have been journeying alongside people throughout my adult life as a teacher, intern supervisor, mentor, mountain guide, group facilitator, youth worker and now counsellor. I find that, in the context of safe and loving relationships, people continually find the tools, resources, strength, and insight within themselves to steer their lives in new, life-giving directions.

My counselling is informed and supported by constructivist modalities, where an individual is seen within the context of a greater social and cultural landscape. I see how the broader world impacts individuals and also how working with individuals, couples, families, and communities impacts the broader world.

I currently hold a masters degree from City University of Seattle in Clinical Counselling, and have had education or training in a number of modalities and theories for various issues. Some of these include:

~ Mindfulness and Meditation

~ Experiential Art Therapy

~ the Enneagram Theory of Personality

~ Attachment Theory

~ Internal Family Systems

~ Narrative Therapy

~ The Developmental Model of Couples Therapy

~ Gestalt Therapy

AntiBias and "White Awake" Training 

~ Queer and Feminist Theory

I am constantly looking for new ideas and insights to enhance my therapy practice.

 

While I tend to include mindfulness, experiential art practices, and somatic (body) attunement in therapy, I also work hard to find the therapeutic style that works best for my clients.  I foster a welcoming space for people from all walks of life, find delight in diversity, and work hard to affirm the dignity of all people. 

My family and I now gratefully live, work, and study on the traditional and unceded territories of the Lekwungen Speaking-peoples, also known as Victoria.
