It is my true pleasure and passion to connect with and guide individual adults and youth, couples, families and groups in working through challenges and towards growth. Our time spent together will be safe, confidential experiences where we work collaboratively, with compassion and curiosity, to meet your needs. My approach is very open and accepting. No matter what you are struggling with or how taboo you feel your concerns, you will find that I am an accepting and non-judgmental listener and support. I strive to create an environment where everyone feels comfortable sharing and exploring.
As a counsellor, I believe in the connection between our physical, mental, social and emotional aspects. In my work with individuals, I encourage considering all of these aspects of one’s well-being. Each of us is our own expert in knowing what is truly best for ourselves. My goal is to help my clients reach a place where they have clear and confident access to that sense of knowing, so that the counselling experience goes beyond the counselling room and the wisdom gained becomes a part of everyday living. This is often achieved by getting to know our genuine selves through honest and safe exploration of the beliefs that have been planted and have grown throughout our lives. Gaining increased awareness of our beliefs about ourselves, the world, and relationships offers us the opportunity to observe and transform those beliefs.
I feel very lucky to be able to enjoy an incredibly fulfilling career as a counsellor and founder of Peak Experience Counselling. For the last 15 years I have worked as an educator and counsellor, developing my skills in connecting and guiding others. I am an experienced couples and relationship counsellor and have many years of experience working with individual adults, youth and families.
Please reach out by phone or email and I will be happy to answer questions, share more and possibly move forward in working together. Online booking is also an option through our website. I look forward to chatting!
As we navigate the situation with COVID-19 together, we want to be communicative with our operating procedures. In adherence with the recommendation from the provincial medical health officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry, we are temporarily unavailable for in person counselling except in emergency situations.
Peak Experience Counselling remains available. Encrypted video (and phone) counselling that meets PIPEDA standards, is how we are continuing, or beginning to support you during this time. We are using a compliant program called doxy.me. Prior to your session you will receive an email with a link to connect. Follow the link and we will connect with you when we see you online. Please note that Google Chrome offers the best connection.
E-counselling is proven to be effective and meaningful and an excellent alternative to in-person counselling.
Please book online as usual or reach out to your counsellor. If there are times that you prefer to book that aren't available online, please reach out and we will arrange a time that does work. If you are a first time client, please book online or reach out by phone, text or email. We will be happy to connect with you.
Payments are via e-transfer or we can take credit card information over the phone.
Should you have questions or concerns, please contact us. Supporting our clients is our priority. Thank you very much for your understanding as we all navigate this challenging time.
