Background and Approach

I am a  Registered Clinical Counsellor with the British Columbian Association of Clinical Counsellors (#3549) and hold a Masters degree in Counselling Psychology as well as a Bachelor of Music.I have been working as a counsellor for 17 years and have experience working with adults, couples and youth. 

I am passionate about supporting my clients so that they are able to achieve their goals and feel empowered to reach healing and growth in their lives. Key to my work philosophy is  a solution focused framework and a striving to equip  individuals   with tools and skills to better combat

the challenges they face in their lives.

The creation of  a safe and nurturing therapeutic environment is central to my counselling practice - I strive to provide  an environment where you feel accepted and supported.  My approach focuses on giving you the tools to help you cope with the emotional challenges that you face.  I draw on  Rogerian, Solution-focused, Gottman method, ACT,  and Mindfulness- Integrated Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approaches.  These approaches provide you with evidence-based strategies that will help in your journey to   feeling stronger, calmer and more self-reliant in your everyday challenges. 

I invite you to call me at (778) 654-6411 and we can discuss the next steps towards booking  your first session. I offer a free 20 minute phone consultation so that you can have a conversation with me before you book your first appointment.
