I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor and Adjunct Professor of Counselling Psychology at UBC. I focus on both couples/relationship counselling, and areas of individual counselling. For couples counselling, I concentrate on helping you learn how to communicate constructively, foster a greater understanding of each others implicit needs and emotions, and relate in a more nurturing way to increase validation, connection, and satisfaction in the relationship.
For individual counselling, I help with mild-to-moderate anxiety, stress, depression, and phobias. I also provide self-development/personal growth counselling that includes areas that address stress management, self-exploration, emotional resilience, mood management, and how to form more adaptive core emotional beliefs to enhance happiness, self-esteem, and peace of mind in life.
My therapeutic approach is an integration of evidence-based therapies designed to address the root of the issue - not only the symptoms. I often provide practical knowledge and skills about how the brain and mind work, how this influences perceptions and behaviours, and strategies to better manage this.
I have found that the biggest factors that lead to positive change in counselling are: 1) An open-mind to seeing your self and the world in a different way; 2) A willingness to try different approaches; and, 3) Putting in effort to incorporate and apply the knowledge and tools learned in counselling into your life.
