Hello, I'm Ella!
Registered Therapeutic Counsellor
Clients come to me to me with a desire to reclaim parts of themselves that are buried under trauma, anxiety, and self-judgement. They feel as though the fundamental spark at the core of their being is lost, tarnished, and far out of reach. They rightfully long for the fullness of their being.
As a trauma-informed Registered Therapeutic Counsellor I assist my clients in rediscovering and reclaiming the fullness of who they are. To do so, we compassionately unpack, re-examine, and release shame, self-judgement, and the weight of traumatic experiences so you can reclaim the spark that makes you, you.
I work closely with my clients' core and limiting beliefs to facilitate this growth and change. My hope is that through our work together, you'll develop a better understanding of your life experiences, emotions, personal goals, and values—leading to personal growth, enhanced relationships, and an improved ability to cope with stress and change.
I Support Clients With...
Inner Child Work
My work is trauma-informed and client-centered. I am informed in Cognitive Behavioural, Narrative, and Dialectical Behavioural therapy and center my approach around Inner Child Work .
'Allora' is an Italian word integral to story-telling. It is most frequently used to denote the relationship between past, present , and future events; think "at that time" "so, then..." "because of that..." "ever since".
Making meaningful connections between a client's past traumas and their present experiences is the foundation of my approach to counselling. Clients come to me with meaningful and vibrant life stories, looking to better understand themselves, their pasts, and their path forward. They feel lost, shut down, and in search of their inner spark and pieces of themselves that were previously thought to be lost.
Through our time together, I help clients better understand the ways in which their choices, behaviours, thoughts, expectations, and sense of self-worth are tied to years of formative experiences and assist clients in rediscovering the fundamental pieces that make them who they are.
Through the ethos of Allora, we can bridge what you've experienced with what you want for your future, and by doing so, rediscover and reclaim your unique inner spark.
