Hi, I'm Cara.

I'm a Registered Clinical Counsellor in Abbotsford and Chilliwack, BC, a graduate from Yorkville University with a Master of Arts in Counselling and Psychology, with an undergraduate in Applied Leadership Studies.

I am passionate about helping you find your most authentic self, and to live in the power of that reality. Being a counsellor allows me the privilege of walking alongside others as they navigate the deeper aspects of life.

Emotions

If you are experiencing anxiety, depression, difficulties with emotion regulation, or relating to your emotions, therapy can help!

Spirituality

Spirituality is such an important aspect of life for many, and counselling can be a safe space to explore your spirituality without judgement.

Relationships of all kinds have their difficulties and benefits. Counselling is a space where you can learn skills to communicate and relate to others in a way that positively builds into your relationships for them to thrive.

Relationships

Who can Benefit from Therapy

If you are someone who is experiencing anxiety, depression, difficulties with life changes, self-worth, relationships, emotion regulation, personal development, or setting boundaries, counselling may be a helpful resource for you. I work with male, female and LGBTQIA+ community youth, young adults, and adults in individual therapy.

What to Expect from Therapy

You can expect a person-centered, trauma-informed, culturally sensitive approach in counselling sessions with me, which means there is an understanding that you are the expert of your own experience and we can work together to find a path forward. Here, we seek to find what approach resonates with you as the client, making it unique to you and providing space for the complexities of your life experience. 

Cara as a Person

I prioritize enjoyment of all aspects of life, within and apart from work. I enjoy being in the outdoors, whether that be hiking or swimming (or cold plunging!), road cycling or walking with a friend, all of these forms of movement bring me joy and a grounding energy. I also love a good book, whether that is getting lost in a novel or learning about psychology and spirituality, my adopted bunny is always nearby keeping me company. If you ask me, I usually have a few different types of creative projects on the go such as sewing, crocheting, baking, or some other new creative outlet that allows my artistic expression to flow freely.
