Thank-you for visiting my page. I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) Psychotherapist and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapist.
I support people in Vancouver/Richmond and communities in the Lower Mainland area.
I am grateful to the ancestors who have cared for their land that I currently occupy. I am committed to being here respectfully, increasing my understanding of the impact of colonization, contributing to healing, and to take action against racism.
I aim to create a safe environment for you during our counselling sessions. A place where you feel connected, safe, and free to be yourself. I honour your truth and your story, I respect your openness and vulnerability.
I am excited to learn what makes you a unique person. My goal is to create a therapeutic connection based on empathy, nonjudgement, care, and kindness. Your mental health, wellness, and resiliency are my priorities.
I listen, I challenge, and I empower. It is important to me that you are heard and I will listen to your truth. Where appropriate, I may challenge you with kindness so that you feel inspired to make changes towards personal growth and overcoming obstacles. Your life experiences hold wisdom. Your wisdom and strengths contribute to your healing journey and personal transformation.
My clinical specialties include supporting adults/youth (16+years) who identify as LGBTQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, +), Adult Children (16+ years) of Alcoholics (ACOA), Adults/Youth (16+ years) involved in Crime/Gangs, and persons (16+ years) who struggle with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) and difficulty regulating emotions.
I also support folks in other areas of clinical practice as listed: depression, anxiety, relationships, communication and boundaries, and self-esteem.
I welcome you to reach out to me if you have any questions or would like to explore the possibilities of working together.
