Certified Athletic Therapists (CAT) are skilled healthcare professionals that specialize in providing care for orthopaedic injuries, whether acute or chronic. Furthermore, CAT’s are experts at injury assessment, treatment, rehabilitation, reconditioning, and prevention.

Athletic Therapy treatments are based on the Sport Medicine Model, an rehabilitation approach with an objective to find and treat the cause of conditions and not just the symptoms. This method also encourages the patient to follow an active approach to rehabilitating an injury or condition, rather than a passive, therapist-dependent approach with reliance on modalities. This leads to faster recovery, decreases risk of re-injury, and reinforces treatment outcomes.

Certified Athletic Therapists also are first responders, providing sideline emergency care for sports organizations

Isabel feels honoured to support her patients in addressing important issues such as anxiety, depression, trauma and chronic pain that have brought them to her practice. As a woman of Brazilian heritage living in Victoria, B.C. she has come to learn the importance of being inclusive and to welcome and celebrate diversity in her practice. She is especially inspired to support issues linked to feelings of low self-worth, inclusion and belonging. A counselling session with Isabel is a collaborative approach where respect, safety and well-being will always come first.

Isabel’s approach to clinical counselling is emotion-focused, experiential and relational. She is passionate about holding a safe space for her clients to explore the interconnectedness of their body and mind which fosters adaptation and well-being. Finding inner balance is most effective when the client is able to develop strategies that connect talking about their feelings and the related experiences that are present within their bodies. The relational work that Isabel offers helps her clients to feel less alone in their journey while building a trusting and respectful relationship which fosters the opportunity to develop openness and enthusiasm for ‘biting’ into life’s pains and challenges with greater taste and strength.

Isabel earned my MA in Social Psychology, aiming to explore how the cooking experience facilitates the individual towards the development of self-understanding and connection to others. In addition to counselling, she has a deeply rooted background in the kitchen and enjoys sharing pleasurable moments with people around the table and food. After several years working as a psychosocial researcher in Brazil, she decided to pause her academic path in psychology to begin cooking professionally. The integration of cooking and counselling has always been an area of interest for her.

Isabel is a BC Registered Clinical Counsellor, and is committed to BCACC’s professional standards of practice and their code of ethical conduct.
