My commitment is to help you through confusing and difficult times. You do not have to do this alone...

I offer counselling and therapeutic services for individuals, couples and groups. I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with a Master’s Degree in Counselling Psychology from UBC. 

My areas of specialization include Trauma, EMDR, Anxiety, Depression, Prenatal and Postpartum issues, and Crime Victim Assistance. I also have experience helping clients struggling with a range of other difficulties including but not limited to Stress, Life transitions, Addictions, Chronic pain or tension, Self Esteem, Loss/grief, Interpersonal/Relationship problems as well as Couples therapy.

My Approach

When you feel safe, you can begin the journey of change and healing. When you feel encouraged and supported without judgment, you can continue creating the life you want and need. I work to empower you with the tools for overcoming your difficulties.

Depending on your needs:

I offer a therapeutic approach incorporating mind and body in order to work through deeper issues that feed your current challenges. Modern techniques such as EMDR facilitate the healing process quickly, allowing you to experience positive results much sooner than traditional therapy.

I also offer solution-focused counselling focusing on your present concerns using a problem solving approach.
