 A little bit about me...

Welcome!

If you are feeling overwhelmed, stuck, or just can’t see a path forward, I am here to help.

I’m a Registered Clinical Counsellor helping clients all over British Columbia transform into their more content and confident selves.

In therapy, you can expect me to focus on helping you get relief as quickly as possible, while also helping you better understand and relieve the emotions, thoughts, behaviours, and beliefs that may be holding you back. I will work towards empowering you to reclaim control over your life and experience sustainable gains in your emotional health.

In practice, this means that we will integrate Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) but will also seek to go deeper, beyond symptom management, so that you can experience deeper, longlasting growth. Often, clients who have been in therapy before but feel that unresolved issues are troubling them, find that EMDR and hypnotherapy can be very helpful.

What you should expect to develop in therapy

We will work towards improving your self-awareness, building tools to handle conflict, improving communication skills, and helping you develop supportive, nurturing relationships.  I have seen people at the height of their struggles. In our work together, we will focus on helping your challenges become less acute. Clients usually sign up for six to eight sessions but often find they start feeling relief from some of the most acute issues after the third or fourth session.

I know therapy can be challenging, but I’m also committed to making sure it feels fulfilling and fun. If you are ready to fully commit to investing in yourself, I am ready to support you.

Experience, training, and credentials

I have been helping people thrive for over 10 years. In addition to working within Canada, I bring a wider perspective from my international experience working in working in Thailand at an International Mental Health & Recovery centre providing therapy to clients from all over the world.

I have a Bachelor of Health Sciences specializing in counseling, and a Masters of Education in Counseling Psychology from the University of Lethbridge. I have additional training in EMDR and hypnotherapy.

I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors. I am also a member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association.
