  • I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor in downtown Vancouver. Our work together will allow us to explore both your internal and external experiences to shed the light of awareness on what may be contributing to the places that feel stuck and confusing, as well as those that cultivate a sense of clarity, balance and well being. When we are provided with a space that is non-judgmental, supportive and creative, we may feel a greater ease to look at the places within where there is fear, hurt, anger and anything else that we feel an aversion to accepting about ourselves. While this is sometimes painful and messy work, when it is done with gentleness, skill and empathy it can lead to relief of some of our suffering for both ourselves and those around us as well as greater satisfaction toward fulfilling our potential as a human being. It is in this awareness that transformation can occur, as our natural wisdom will lead us there. I have specialized training in EMDR, Mindfulness/Meditation practices & Grief and Loss.

  • Within each of us there is courage, strength, resiliency, and the desire to love and be loved by both ourselves and others. Sometimes, though things don\'t go how we want them to and we need to be supported, encouraged, and challenged to get ourselves either back on track, or onto a new and more fulfilling, rewarding, and meaningful track. I work from a person-centered, strength based, solution focused, and cognitive behavioural (CBT) approach. What this means is I work with you to help you uncover your inner strengths, your inner resources, and your inner courage to work through the things in your life that are getting in the way of feeling true joy, fulfillment, connection, and happiness.

  • Life is challenging and often painful. Whether you are facing a crisis, a difficult decision or struggling with emotional pain, it is not always easy to see a clear path or solution. To complicate matters, you do not enter into this world with a manual on how life is supposed to work. Yet, you are expected to know all of the answers and live up to others’ expectations, not your own. Together, we will work to break you free of these limitations and encumbrances, achieve awareness of the blocks that are limiting you and gain the insights that you are seeking. You will develop tools and skills to achieve the life you want.

  • I am passionate about therapy. It allows me to help people find harmony in their lives. Few things in life are as rewarding as embarking on a journey with a person who travels inwardly and in so doing is empowered by greater self-awareness. Counselling helps because it offers a non-judgemental space to discuss issues; it helps us to express negative emotions, which give space to new ways of being, thinking and feeling. I cannot fix your problems - only you can - but I can share knowledge with you that can lead to greater insight. Counselling is work and it is not always easy work. We need to put new behaviours and thoughts into action to see results, while recognizing and accepting that the \"new\" can be initially scary. You deserve to be happy. By identifying and pushing through the places we resist, we step into happiness. Contrary to popular belief, counselling does not have to take years to complete. In fact, positive changes begin when we decide to reach out to a counsellor.
