What does thriving mean to you? I’m a Registered Clinical Counsellor operating from Victoria, BC. I offer in-person sessions in a beautiful office in central Victoria, as well as telehealth appointments.

I specialize in helping clients working through challenging emotional states (anxiety, depression, and grief), processing trauma, improving relationships, men's issues, feeling stuck and overwhelmed, and more. However, therapy is about more than just alleviating problems; in the process we explore what kind of person you want to be, and what it means to live in alignment with your values. Through our work, you learn to be the author of change in your own life.
A strong, trusting therapeutic relationship is at the heart of effective counselling. My priority is to understand you, and then to be direct as possible in helping you understand yourself. Although empathetic listening is important, my approach goes beyond that in offering honest, straight-forward feedback backed by research and clinical experience.
I draw from multiple theories in my work, tailoring my approach to your specific personality and circumstances. I draw heavily on Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (an evidence-based therapy with over 800 randomized control-trials), as well as Internal Family Systems, Emotion-Focused Therapy, and Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy I work from a trauma-informed lens, meaning I keep awareness of the impact of trauma on current patterns and the process of change. Each client is unique, and pulling from many different resources has been crucial to their progress.
My Master’s degree was focused in the science of human flourishing, thus rather than simply focusing on alleviating symptoms for clients, I am interested in fostering their inherent capacity to thrive in their lives. I have completed over 100 hours of direct clinical supervision, and two internships in diverse clinical settings, and specific training in the ACT model of therapy.
I'm glad you're taking the next step in prioritizing your well-being. I'd be honoured to help you on that path. If you're feeling a connection to my page, book a free 20-minute consultation to see if we'd be a good fit.
