Q & A With our Staff

A little bit more about me

Education?

I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts from UBC in 2021, with a major in Psychology and a minor in Health and Society. In the future I plan on attending grad school and pursuing a career in either Clinical or Counselling Psychology.

Something you’re proud of (challenge you’ve overcome, etc.)?

Graduating from university during the COVID-19 pandemic!. Transitioning to virtual learning was not easy, and I am proud of myself for being adaptable and completing my degree during such challenging times.

What led you to counselling?

I always knew that I wanted to work in a helping profession of some sort, but didn’t know exactly what that would look like. Once I started university and began taking psychology courses, I immediately knew that this was the field where I was meant to be!

What/who inspires you?

Brené Brown, and specifically her TedTalk The Power of Vulnerability. I love all of Brené’s work, but that first TedTalk had the most profound impact on the way I live my life.

Favorite things to do?

I love spending time with my friends and family, and being outdoors – swimming in the summer and skiing in the winter!

Favorite book and why?

My favourite book is It’s Okay to Laugh (Crying is Cool Too), and it’s sequel No Happy Endings by Nora McInerny. In these memoirs, Nora uses humour to tackle difficult topics such as illness, grief and loss in an incredibly eloquent and uplifting way. These are books that I have read over and over again, and I learn something new every time.
