Thank you for visiting my page. My counselling practice is mainly focused on working with people who are experiencing difficulty with alcohol and/or drug use and addiction. As alcohol and substance use issues exist on a spectrum, my practice is open to those who may be questioning their use, to those who know they have an issue and wish to explore managing or stopping their use. My approach is rooted in a bio-psycho-social-spiritual perspective, which recognizes that addiction is a complex result of a number of factors. Addiction can develop in part due to our biology, brain chemistry, our family history, life experiences, and our beliefs. Because the roots of addiction are varied, recovery can look different for each person. My aim is to work with people to create an individualized plan, one that addresses your unique needs as a whole person. I believe that each person can achieve recovery and freedom from substance use issues.
I hold a Master's degree in Social Work from the University of Victoria, and I am a Registered Social Worker in BC (#11514), and currently work in the healthcare field. I also hold a certificate from the Justice Institute of BC in Substance Use as well as a certificate in Professional Recovery Coaching from the International Association of Professional Recovery Coaches. I have studied addiction extensively over the years and continually learn about new developments in research and evidence based practices. My practice is influenced by motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioural therapy, mindfulness practices, solution-focussed counselling and coaching techniques.
I hold in-person sessions in Vancouver on Tuesday evenings, and I am happy to offer distance sessions via Skype on other evenings or weekends.
