I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with the BCACC (#21395). I have more than 20 years of experience supporting youth, adults and families resolve conflict and develop a toolbox of skills to navigate life’s obstacles. I have extensive experience working with individuals dealing with anger management, anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, disrupted attachment and substance abuse.
I believe the foundation of success lies in the development of the therapeutic relationship. I am dedicated to fostering a supporting and healing space for individuals, couples, and families. I would describe my approach to therapy as one that is collaborative, eclectic, and individually tailored to meet the needs of my clients.
I use an individualized approach in therapy, combining cognitive, mindfulness, and acceptance-based theories to help clients identify obstacles and achieve their goals. My primary therapeutic approaches include Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Alderian Play Therapy, and Emotion Focused Family Therapy.
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with BCACC (#21447). I am here to support you in becoming the truest, healthiest version of yourself. I use a gentle, compassionate approach to guide you towards deep self-reflection and growth.
Seeking help takes courage and I offer a safe, non-judgmental space to support you in your journey. I draw from a variety of approaches, including CBT, DBT, ACT, Motivational Interviewing and Mindfulness.
Together we will develop a treatment plan that is unique to you.
I have experience working with adolescents and adults. I specialize in anxiety, depression, perinatal mental health, intimate partner violence, substance use, grief and trauma. I have close to thirty years of nursing experience, having worked in pediatric community care and public health.
I believe that pain is an inevitable part of life, but suffering is not. I invite you to reach out to connect with me so I can support you through life's challenges.

Kids, Teens, Adults
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with BCACC (#20087). I have over 20 years of experience helping people reach their full potential; be it as a personal trainer, coach, or therapist. I have coached and counselled people at all stages and places in their lives, from teenagers with low self-worth to elite athletes wishing to gain a mental edge in their sport.
I view every client as unique and use an integrated approach to therapy. This may include taking a client-centred, non-judgmental, and strength-based approach.
The relationship between counsellor and client is critical to success; therefore, mutual trust, understanding and respect are the cornerstones of my practice. I take a practical, action-orientated approach that often challenges and pushes clients out of their comfort zone. I use an integrated approach in therapy using a combination of Solution Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Positive Psychology, and logo therapy, depending on the client’s needs and preferences. Generally, I use a non-judgmental strength-based approach.
I became a clinical counsellor because I love helping people achieve their goals, overcome challenges, and move closer to their potential. My goal with every client is to get them to a place where they no longer need me.
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with the BCACC (#19942). I have more than 15 years of experience counselling children, teens, adults and families moving through life’s challenges. Counselling is a collaborative approach, and I will work hard to create a strong alliance with each client and a safe space for learning and growth.
I have worked extensively in the areas of anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, behavioral issues and AD(H)D.
Therapeutic approaches include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy CBT, Solution Focused Therapy, Art and Play Therapy, Mindfulness, Emotion Focused Family Therapy EFFT, and Trauma Informed Approaches.

My goal is to provide you with respect, support and guidance to help you reach your full potential.
