I have an office based in Port Moody and Vancouver and meet in person, I can also meet virtually with someone who lives outside the Lower Mainland.
Do you want to build a life that is worth living, filled with healthy balanced relationships with friends, family and important people in your life? Do you want to build a stronger understanding of yourself and navigate things that get in the way of you living the life you want to lead? Do you want to challenge your anxiety, anger, sadness and other intense emotions? Do you want to address issues such as self-harm, unhealthy eating habits, feelings of loneliness and disconnection. Do you want to work towards goals that create connection and meaning in your life?
You have come to the right place, it is possible.
I'm a counsellor with extensive experience and training, which includes Dialectic Behaviour Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Emotion Focused Family Therapy, Radically Open Dialectic Behaviour Therapy as well as others. I have a Master in Social Work and am a Registered Social Worker from the BC College of Social Workers.
You have come to the right place to start making positive changes in your life. It is possible.
I always start with the relationship and meet you where you are, so we can work together to best meet your needs. I have a warm, compassionate and genuine style. I am passionate about helping people build strong relationships.
With counselling, fit is important. Its also hard to reach out and talk with someone. Please feel free to call or email me. I'd be happy to talk with you about my services, approach and answer any questions you may have. I can also give you an outline of what counselling can look like.
