Michelle Lim has a Master of Social Work degree, and is a Registered Social Worker with the BC College of Social Workers.  With cultural humility, she strives to foster a welcoming, caring, and trauma-informed space where people can express themselves and feel heard.  Her counselling approach emphasizes the mind-body connection and integrates various therapeutic approaches, including solution focused brief therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, and dialectical behavioural therapy.
