Is your relationship/marriage struggling, or do you feel disconnected or lost? Do you feel like your relationship is at a standstill? Are you and your partner stuck in the same argument loop every night? Do you feel like you and your partner are drifting away? Do you desire more intimacy between you and your partner? I help couples restore and strengthen safety, trust, and emotional closeness. I am here to help.
I am a Certified Counsellor with Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association since 2012 (CCC Reg # 3601). I have Bachelor of Psychology from Simon Fraser University and Masters in Counselling Psychology from Adler University. I have over 13 years of experience working in different settings ( outreach counselling, facilitation, and adjudications) and with variety of populations ( homeless, individuals with concurrent mental health, immigrants/refugees, youth and families). I primarily work with the following issues:
- Couples Counselling
- Pre-marital Counselling
- Men’s issues
- Family relationship issues
- Blended families
My approach to counselling is deeply rooted in Mindfulness-based techniques, Adlerian, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Emotional Focused Therapy, and Gottman Couple Therapy.
My Vision: Pause, Process, and Heal
We often become too good at pushing down and pushing on, in efforts to get by. It's hard to notice the signals that our bodies are trying to send when we're in survival mode. I view therapy as an opportunity to pause, process, and heal. Taking the first step and booking a session takes bravery and an incredible amount of self-awareness. If you're reading this, you have already taken the first step in addressing what's not working for you. I offer individual counselling, couples counselling, and family counselling in hopes of being part of your journey.
My Client Promise:
I promise to be there for you every step of your journey. My goal is to establish a strong therapeutic relationship where you feel safe to explore. I aim to create a generative, compassionate, and safe emotional space from which challenges and experiences can be explored.
