Please note, I am at full capacity and am not currently accepting new clients.
Each of us goes through difficult times in our lives and you deserve support, compassion, and understanding. I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (#18902) who is passionate about supporting individuals, relationships, and families to heal, grow, and thrive. I offer a non-judgmental, collaborative, and trauma-informed space for you and the people in your life to navigate life’s difficulties, cope with distress, and create well-being & change in ways that are important to you. Counselling is a space for you and your unique concerns. You are the expert in your life and I am here to offer process expertise, resources, and support in you meeting your goals.
Counselling can help deepen self-understanding, enhance relationships, manage anxiety and worry, rebuild self-worth, and more. As a counsellor, I work to meet each client where they are at. This means seeing my clients in their struggles and their strengths and in collaboratively ensuring that our work together is relevant and meaningful for you. I bring a relational and anti-oppressive approach to our work so as to recognize and honour the multiple and complex aspects of your identity and experience. My approach draws on a number of therapeutic modalities to meet each client's needs, including narrative, emotion-focused, attachment-based, and somatic-based therapies. I offer queer and trans positive counselling, and non-monogamous/poly-affirming counselling.
I hold a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology and a PhD in Philosophy of Education from Simon Fraser University. Additionally, I have specialized training and certifications in the following areas:
- Narrative Therapy Level 1 (Vancouver School of Narrative Therapy)
- Emotion-Focused Therapy for Individuals Level 1 (Vancouver Couple & Family Institute)
- Emotion-Focused Therapy for Couples Level 1 (Vancouver Couple & Family Institute)
- Introduction to Play Therapy
- Telepsychology Best Practices 101 (American Psychological Association)
It's a big step to reach out for support - many of us delay reaching out because of fears or because it is a new and unknown experience. I recognize that choosing a counsellor can be difficult. I offer complimentary 15-min phone consultations to answer your questions and figure out how we might best work together. I look forward to connecting with you.
