I came to beautiful
Vancouver Island a decade ago to pursue my Masters degree in
Counselling Psychology which is far preferable to shivering in the Alberta
cold! It was so beautiful here that I decided to stay and get my Post
Masters Certificate in Art Therapy. This qualified me as a clinical
counsellor and art therapist. Three years ago, I opened my practice here
in Victoria, BC where I’ve settled down with my husband, 2 step-children and 3
fur babies: 2 local rescue cats and a Mexican rescue dog!
When I’m not
working with people, I can be found writing in my journal, playing any version
of Mario I can find, walking my dog, going to movies and spending time with the
important people (and animals!) in my life.
I am modern, holistic and systemic in my approaches. I will work alongside you while you find increased balance, clarity, connection, and contentment in your life and relationships. I will tailor each session to best suit your needs leaving you feeling understood, refreshed, and grounded.I will invite you to choose from conventional counselling, art therapy to reveal or express suppressed feelings, and using yoga to unlock those places in the body where you store your feelings. Together, these approaches are a powerful combination that allows for whole self healing.
I strive to connect
with you in a professional manner while remaining approachable, flexible
and with a sense of humor in tact! I am non-judgemental, direct, and
compassionate, and most importantly, I will work with you to meet your goals
and direction in life.
