Sacha (she/her) believes in creating a safe and inclusive space for clients to communicate their feelings and experiences without judgement. Through her open and empathic approach, Sacha helps clients navigate concerns, identify and build on their existing strengths, and work collaboratively to gain insight and tools for growth. She values the diverse identities and experiences of each client, and provides support through an anti-oppressive, trauma-informed lens.
Sacha has a background in Child and Youth Care, and has experience working with children, youth, and their families in mental health and behaviour intervention settings, including those who require additional support for neurodivergent needs. Additionally, she has extensive training and experience working with LGBTQ2SAI+ clients of all ages, and has a passion for helping clients work through gender and sexuality-based concerns.
Sacha’s approach to counselling is primarily informed by Feminist Therapy. She is flexible to the needs of the client and also integrates aspects of Attachment Theory, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Emotion-Focused Therapy. She holds a Bachelors in Child and Youth Care from the University of Victoria, and is currently completing her Masters of Counselling Psychology at Adler University with the goal of becoming a Registered Clinical Counsellor. When she isn’t busy studying or working with clients, Sacha enjoys drawing, spending time outdoors, and hanging out with her therapy dog in-training, Crumbs.
