Therapy is more like growing a tree than fixing a machine - it takes consistent care and time to grow. I'm a Registered Clinical Counsellor and hold a Master's degree in Counselling Psychology from UBC. I help people with anxiety, stress, depression, and relationships.
My approach is integrative as I combine various therapies based on the uniqueness of each individual. I tend to use a lot of experiential exercises rather than solely talking because actively engaging in an experience helps with understanding and making what is learned truly stick.
I have counselled people from many walks of life. Some of the places where I have counselled are: UBC, BC Public Service, and Lifespring Counselling. I offer both in-office and online counselling!

For a more lengthy description about my practice, please see below: 

Lifespring Counselling
People come to Lifespring Counselling to get help with a wide range of concerns such as anxiety, depression, stress, relationship problems, trauma, and more. Whether you are looking for individual, online, couples, family, or other counselling services, we can help. 

The term “Lifespring” means "source of life" and this has great significance because people come to counselling to get help with maladaptive ways of thinking, behaving and relating that they want changed to more healthy ways of being.

"Lifespring" also represents a primordial and fundamental direction that most everyone longs to go toward - that of health, life, and positive growth. Lifespring Counselling is intended to be a source for facilitating this positive and life-promoting development toward happiness and health.
Your Counsellors 
Counsellors at Lifespring hold Master's degrees in Counselling Psychology from the University of British Columbia and are Registered Clinical Counsellors (RCC) with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC). 

What sets us apart from other counsellors is the dedication, quality, and care that we give to counselling each and every client. Our training and experience is some of the best and most diverse, and we have an excellent track record of results.

Our Approach
The therapists at Lifespring combine aspects of several psychotherapies including Cognitive-Behavioural, Psychodynamic, Experiential, Schema-Focused, Emotion-Focused, Person-Centred, and Mindfulness-Based.

What this means is that we help you to deal with the emotional baggage that has stuck with you so you can get on with your life. Dealing with the baggage often involves processing the underlying worries and beliefs that are at the core of your inner turmoil. This turmoil is what usually prevents people from having the happiness and peace of mind that they want.

The whole therapy process is accomplished through a compassionate, engaging, effective and safe therapeutic approach. Our approach is informed and guided by neuroscience and counselling research.
You will be guided in, but ultimately in charge of deciding what your values, goals, perspectives and potential are. You will be expertly supported in how to create these changes that you want in your self and life.

We have 2 convenient locations to choose from in Vancouver & Burnaby:
  • 300 - 3665 Kingsway, Vancouver, BC V5R 5W2
  • 501 - 3292 Production Way, Burnaby, BC V5A 4R4 

Your mental health is one of the most important things you can do for your happiness and satisfaction in life. Give us a call at (604) 754-7807 or connect with us through to begin your journey to greater happiness and health.
