ABOUT

After working as a medical doctor for over 15 years in different specialities and different countries, Alita made a career change to counselling as this is where she feels she can best apply herself to make a difference in the lives of others. She is currently a student at Adler University where she is focusing on individual, couples and group counselling for adults, and doing her thesis on how Vancouver seniors experience and cope with loneliness.

Alita’s personal life experiences supplement her professional experiences. To name a few, she understands the challenges of immigration, career change, parenting and relationships.

Alita’s mission is to help clients achieve wellness, harmony and balance. She strives to do this by helping clients learn new coping skills, develop courage and increase resilience. She encourages growth and transformation. She empowers clients to reclaim their clarity, their integrity, their competence and their ability to overcome challenges, form meaningful interpersonal relationships and contribute to society.

Alita respects diversity. She welcomes people from different cultures and people with any sexual orientation and gender identity.
