Rather than being your thoughts and emotions, be the awareness behind them.

A Holistic Approach

Alexandra's Vancouver and North Vancouver-based counselling practice focuses on supporting individuals and couples on their journey to wellness, healing, and growth.  Her aim is to engage in meaningful work, to empower individuals in discovering their own ability to heal, and to guide individuals in the discovery of their inner wisdom.  Her holistic mind-body approach brings a unique perspective to the therapeutic process, when available she draws upon biological, social, psychological, cultural, and spiritual influences.  

Alexandra has an empathic and non-judgmental approach, which helps put clients at ease.  She puts in the extra time and energy to create a welcoming environment and aims to make the counselling experience one that is rich and full of discovery.
