It takes courage to reach out for support and to picture yourself sharing personal thoughts and concerns with a stranger. Knowing this, my priority is to create a safe, confidential and respectful space within which we can work together to identify and resolve current issues you are dealing with. I specialize in providing support with workplace related issues, such as stress, burnout, low motivation, performance anxiety, career assessment, interpersonal conflict, and bullying. However, I also see individuals for non-work related issues, such as relationship challenges, anxiety, mood disturbances, behavioral difficulties, and sleep difficulties.
My approach combines evidence-based theory and practice with practical strategies you can start implementing straight away. The paradigms I draw from include CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), EMDR, Coaching, Mindfulness and Solution Focused Therapy.
As a certified third party mediator, I regularly provide interpersonal conflict resolution, which can take the form of individual coaching and/or a mediated session between two or more parties in conflict. I also specialize in leadership development and helping individuals facing challenges associated with being responsible for others.
I spent the first five years of my career as an Army Psychologist with the New Zealand Defense Force where I had the opportunity first hand to witness the resiliency of the human spirit. This belief in every individual's ability to meet and rise above life's challenges is something I continue to bring into every session and that guides my practice. In the ten years I have been living and working in Vancouver I have had the privilege of working with people from a diverse range of different backgrounds, ethnicities, and cultures, and I welcome individuals from all walks of life into my practice.
I am a Registered Psychologist in BC and New Zealand and have been in practice for 15 years. As part of my ongoing learning and development I am currently enrolled in a doctorate program. My office is located in Downtown Vancouver and my office hours are 9am-4pm.
