Life can be complicated no matter what your age is. Managing life transitions such as becoming a teenager or young adult, a parent, or change in any life routine can be difficult. You may be experiencing stress, anxiety, addiction, or relationship issues. Traumas and life stressors we experience can affect how we feel, think, and connect with others. I aim to help you connect with yourself and others in a way that makes you feel more content and confident in life.
I've been a social worker for 14+ years, with a passion for child, youth, and family development. I currently work at VCH in a youth concurrent inpatient program. The variety of past counselling roles has provided me with extensive knowledge of mental health, addictions, ADHD, FASD, trauma, parenting, and family dynamics.
My approach is strength-based, client-centred, non-judgemental, and compassionate. I aim to understand people within the context of biology, trauma, and family systems.
I offer in-person and virtual counselling to individuals aged 13 years +. Must be a resident of BC. I'm also an approved mental health provider through the First Nations Health Authority. Please visit my website for more information.
Currently I am offering sessions primarily on Fridays. Starting February 2023 I will be opening up a full Tuesday of session availability.
Client fee individuals:$160 per 50 minute session
