Meet Tiffany Kusnezov, Registered Clinical Counsellor
Tiffany believes that as humans, we all have an innate capacity for and pull toward healing, health and expanded, creative living. When things are not moving in this direction, Tiffany believes that counselling and therapy can by immensely impactful. Inevitably, along our life’s journey, we experience phenomena, events, relational dynamics, losses, to name a general few,
which can become ‘sticky’, and ultimately, oftentimes out of our awareness, diminish our capacity for “living our best lives”. Instead, this reduction in capacity may result in diminished everyday functioning presenting as any, or many, of the following: consistently feeling flat, powerless, lackluster, small, numb, fearful, agitated, hypervigilant, worried, stuck, trapped, hopeless, overwhelmed, exhausted… the list goes on. Enter counselling and therapy: in the presence of an attuned other, in this case, a therapeutic relationship, intentional space is provided for difficult experiences, problems or patterns to be acknowledged and gently witnessed, held, examined, and metabolized. The result may be that degrees of ease and empowerment return, increasing one’s capacity to participate more fully in life once again.
Tiffany has worked with youth and their families in the public school system for over 20 years, both as an educator and a school counsellor, in secondary school and alternate school settings.
Tiffany graduated with a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology in 2012 from the University of Victoria.
