I am a registered, licensed clinical/therapeutic counsellor since 2008. I returned to school later in life to obtain M.A. in Counselling. I have worked in the mental health/social service sector successfully for 20 years (part time while raising my kids) and have experience working in the court system and up north in remote, fly in only 1st Nation reserves. I am a Certified Educator for Positive Discipline and Gottman 7 Principles Program and Gottman Method Couples Therapy.
To become your “best you”, I offer a safe, empathetic, respectful environment towards your growth, wellbeing & enjoyment of life. I believe in resilience, a healthy sense of humour & the potential in oneself. By being aware of our thoughts about ourselves and the world around us, we can learn to modify them and create a healthier belief system and emotions . In quoting one of my respected professors, Candace Curry, “you will be in the drivers seat and I ride shot gun” providing guidance, compassion, effective active listening and evidence based research strategies towards making informed choices. With my positive energy, healthy sense of humour and focus on your overall wellness, you will be encouraged to attain your achievable goals.
I regularly attend professional development courses and am one course away from becoming a Certified Gottman therapist. I take many professional development courses from wide spectrum (ie addictions, trauma – EMDR, child/youth and family, neurobiology and others). I have expertise in child, youth development, family dynamics, addictions, grief and loss, navigating school issues and couples work.
I am approved for Victim Services, First Nations Health Authority, Vancouver Family Services, Solareh.
