Are you struggling with anxiety?
Are you experiencing difficulties in your relationships?
Are you hard on yourself?
I can help.
I offer a compassionate and grounded approach with real solutions to help promote the positive change I know you're longing for in your life.
In working with me, we work as a team to clearly identify your problems and your goals. I'll invite you to work with me to help you break free from the ways you get in your own way. In that process together, I'll be direct, compassionate, and respectful to you.
I welcome the ethnic, cultural, sexual, religious/spiritual diversity of the people I work with.
My work is informed through my training and clinical experience as well as also through the wisdom of my own life experience. I believe I'm able to offer better service to people I work with because I know, firsthand, what it feels like to be a client. In other words, I'm not just working from a textbook.
I've been a Registered Clinical Counsellor since 2006. I'm a life-long learner and I'm currently training in ISTDP.
I also apply my training in these amazing research-based approaches to working with couples: Gottman Therapy and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy
I completed my Masters of Education in Counselling Psychology at UVic and my Undergraduate degree is in Cultural Anthropology.
