Student Counsellor providing free counselling services
Tricia is a kind, compassionate, and intuitive individual who has a passion for working with people. Her open and warm demeanor contribute to her ability to connect with her clients, and to build a safe and non-judgmental relationship. Her goal is to accompany each client on their own unique journey, supporting them towards deeper personal insight, self-discovery, and enhanced well-being.
Tricia began her educational journey by attaining her Bachelor of Arts, with majors in Psychology and Sociology, from the University of Guelph while spending one year as a visiting student with the University of British Columbia. In the years following, she chose the study of people through a different lens as she completed her Photography Certificate and entered the world of professional photography on the West coast of Canada. More recently, she completed her coursework for her Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology with Yorkville University, and is now completing her practicum requirement under the supervision of Dr. Laurie Ponsford-Hill at The Counselling House.
Tricia looks forward to working with individual and couples with a variety of experiences including anxiety, depression, low-self esteem, and relational issues. Tricia is also an ally of the LGBTQ+ population. She is pleased to offer her counselling services for free throughout her internship at The Counselling House.
