MEET Roz (She/Her)
Welcome! I am glad you are here.
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with the Britsh Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors at Solidarity Therapy.
I have a Master’s in Counselling Psychology from Adler University as well as a Certificate in Addictions Counselling.
In my spare time, I love to play hockey and other sports and enjoy outdoor activities such as kayaking and walking in the wilderness. I enjoy reading and listening to music which comprises part of my self-care. Meditation and my own personal growth are also key components of my self-care.
I use the pronouns she/her and identify as a queer woman and am a visible minority which puts me in a unique position to understand and work with individuals with various intersectionalities not only using my academic knowledge but also my lived experience to help guide therapy and assist others in growth.
My primary goal is to create a safe space for my clients which fosters change and growth. My main modality is Narrative Therapy however, I use a variety of interventions and techniques in my work from various modalities where needed to help clients on their journey, such as DBT, CBT, Mindfulness, Attachment theory, Gottman’s theory for couples counselling and Family Systems Theory when working with families.
I enjoy working with youth and adults, inclusive of all genders. I operate from a trauma-informed approach and have a great deal of experience with addictions, trauma and mood disorders. My primary goal is to create a safe space for change, growth and healing.
