In my practice, I firmly believe that you are the expert in your own life, and that it is not my place to decide what is best for you. You bring your specialty knowledge on what has worked and what hasn’t worked into your counselling experience, and it is our job to work together to access your own inner wisdom and to help you find the best path forward.
As your counsellor, it is my goal to come alongside you to support you in learning how to resolve, manage, or accept the various challenges that life brings. I aim to create a warm, judgment-free professional relationship where you may feel safe to explore your thoughts, feelings, memories, relationships, and behaviours more deeply and authentically, with the overall goal in mind of creating lasting change for a more balanced and resourceful life.
First, a bit about me. I completed a Master’s degree in counselling in 2010 and am a Certified Counsellor, registered in good standing with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. My background as a parent, teacher, mediator and advocate inform my counselling approach.
I work with diverse populations: 2SLGBTQIA+, adults, adolescents and families as well as women experiencing reproductive challenges, post-partum depression and menopause.
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor in good professional standing with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors. This means that I hold a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology and have completed the requisite clinical training and supervisory experiences necessary to practice clinical counselling with this designation in BC.
