Hello, I am a Registered Psychologist in Vancouver, British Columbia. I’ve had the privilege of working with many people with a range of life struggles. It is very important to me to have a practice that is respectful and inclusive with respect to all of the ways that we as humans are different (e.g., culture/ethnicity, physical ability, sexual orientation, age, gender). I try to be straightforward and genuine and to give you the space you need to work on what brings you to my office.
Some people who seek my help are dealing with current issues -- like their relationships or their work. Others may be dealing with a significant loss or change in their lives (such as the death of a partner or a companion animal or a change in health status). Some are trying to make important life decisions for themselves related to careers or relationships or life transitions such as retirement. For others, childhood and adult injuries (emotional, physical, sexual) have had long-lasting effects on who they are and how they feel in the world and they want to work on feeling better about themselves and moving on with their lives.
I provide individual therapy to adults. I also offer supervision/consultation for therapists/counselors looking to deepen their practice and/or seeking additional consultation. I am also very aware of the need for self-care and balance in my own life and I offer consultation for other clinicians as they seek this necessary foundation and support.
As a registered psychologist, my fees are usually partly or fully covered by extended health plans or employee assistance plans. For clients who have qualified for assistance from BC’s Crime Victim’s Assistance Program (CVAP), I can bill that program directly. I am also a provider for First Nations Health Authority and am able to bill them directly as well. Psychological services are also eligible health care expenses for income tax purposes. Please feel free to call me and ask me about my practice and whether I would be a good match to your needs. If I can’t help, I’ll try to help you find another professional.
