Please note: I am currently not accepting new clients, but would love to connect with you in early August, 2021.
I'm a Registered Clinical Counsellor in Victoria, BC (BCACC #11659). I work with children, youth, adults, and families. I use a strength-based approach, and draw on the theories of narrative, response-based, internal family systems and emotion focused therapy in my work. I also specialize in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), a proven and effective therapy approach for the treatment of trauma and many other mental health challenges. I employ arts-based approaches, incorporating music and visual arts, especially when working with children and youth. When I am not working, I love playing and listening to music, singing, hiking, lake swimming, reading and spending time with my family.
I believe that human beings are resilient and have the capacity to change. It is through life's challenges that we grow and become stronger, more integrated individuals. As Rumi wrote: “The wound is the place where the Light enters you.”
Counselling can help in times of challenge or crisis by offering a space to be heard without judgment, to explore solutions, and to expand perspectives on healing and wellness. Essential to my practice is the belief that you as the client are the expert on your life and experience. As a counsellor I aim to help you on your journey toward achieving your goals.
