Experience
 
I have over 20 years of experience as a counsellor, school psychologist, mother and wife.  As a counsellor in private practice, I have worked with individuals, couples, and families.  I understand how difficult it can be to manage some of life's difficult issues and complicated relationships.  From time to time we all need some support.  When it comes to knowing about you and your family, you are the expert.  We can work together.  As an experienced therapist, we can use your knowledge and my specialized training to work through those troubled times.
 
As a Couples Therapist I have experience working with couples and individuals of all ages who are trying to work through relationship issues.  Pre-marriage counselling is helpful to those who want to start their relationship using some research based skills to prevent conflict later on.  
 
Couples who are in long term relationships benefit from professional support when issues arise.  
Every couple goes through circumstances and transitions that impact the relationship.  A new baby, children, changes in work, money, affairs, blended families, health, teen agers, parents, death, are all circumstance that have an effect on your family and relationships.  As a professional experienced counsellor I can provide you with the support and skills to help you through these difficult times.  
 
End of relationship issues, "Conscious Uncoupling" , separation, or divorce are also  transitions where counselling support is very beneficial to everyone involved.  I am available to help you work through this transition in an amicable, dignified manner that is in the best interest of each individual.  If there are children involved, counselling is especially important to ensure that the best interests of the children are taken into consideration.  I am also available to provide a View of the Child Report if required.  
 
Education
 
I have a Master's Degree in Psychology and am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors.  In addition, I have completed training in the Gottman Method Couples Therapy Program (both Level I and Level II) as well as training in the Developmental Model of Couples Therapy.  
 
Through my training with the Institute for Trauma and Loss in Children I received certification as an Advanced Trauma Practitioner.  As a trauma informed clinician, I believe that any individual or family trauma must be taken into consideration when working with individuals, couples, or families.  I have completed courses through the Justice Institute of BC in Conflict Resolution, Mediation, Negotiation and Family Justice.
