Level 1 (Foundation) Accreditation as a CBT Practitioner.
My background is rooted in education and counseling. I have been involved in education for almost twenty years, specializing in special education support and counseling. I have worked with students with various issues, including emotional challenges, autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, and learning challenges. I worked with at-risk teenagers to help them succeed educationally and socially in these areas. I developed outreach programs for schools to allow students with severe anxiety and attendance problems to gain their high school diplomas. I have also worked at an administrative level in schools.
For the last ten years, I have focused on counseling and worked with adults and teenagers with anxiety, depression, cultural challenges, and bullying. I have also worked in educational counseling, focusing on university applications, international schooling in Japan, and career guidance.
My focus is on the following areas:
Sexuality and gender identity
Special Educational Needs
My therapeutic training focuses on cognitive behavioral therapy and choice therapy, and I continue to work on professional development to ensure that I can maximize my skills for my clients.
I look forward to getting the chance to work with you, whether it is for mental health, special needs consultation, or educational needs.
