I provide warm, collaborative and client-centered counselling services from my office located in the Gorge area of Victoria, and across Canada by phone or video chat.
I specialize in pregnancy and postpartum counselling. I have over 20 years of experience working alongside families in providing non-judgmental support during this important time of life. Common concerns include mood issues, relationship changes, birth trauma recovery, excessive fear, identity shifts and pregnancy loss. As a survivor of postpartum depression, I understand the crucial role of emotional support during the challenging years of early parenting.
I also have expertise in helping clients with other issues including depression, relationship challenges including separation and divorce, self-esteem and life transitions. I have a special interest in assisting clients to find clarity regarding career decisions and direction. I am knowledgeable on how experience with trauma can effect a person and provide counselling in a way that protects a person's feelings of safety and builds on their inner resilience. I use a narrative approach, focusing on a person's strengths to support lasting change.
I am committed to providing safe care to diverse families including single parents, LGTBQ, co-parenting and other non-traditional arrangements. Outside of work, I enjoy yoga, swimming, nature, travelling and spending time with family and friends.
I have a Masters degree in Social Work from the University of British Columbia and am registered with the BC College of Social Workers.
Finding the right fit in a counsellor is crucial. I offer a free no-obligation consultation to discover if we are a good match.
