Alia is a registered psychotherapist with a Master’s degree in Counselling and Spirituality. Her therapeutic work is rooted in compassion and centred on the relationship between herself and the client. While Alia has experience in cognitive behavioural, cognitive processing and dialectical behavioural therapy, her approach draws largely upon experiential based therapeutic modalities including Internal Family Systems, EMDR, and the weaving in of various mindfulness, somatic and embodiment interventions.
Alia specializes in working with clients who struggle with traumatic experience; acute, intergenerational and complex. She also works with a wide range of clinical issues including anxiety and depression, as well as relational difficulties, spiritual and faith crises, and grief. Alia identifies as a queer woman and enjoys supporting clients in exploring issues related to gender-identity, sexual intimacy, and sexuality.
Alia brings warmth, presence, and deep respect to her relationship with clients and feels it is a privilege to be able to do this work. She believes in the transformational power of a secure, supportive relationship, and would love to create one with you
