As a Registered Clinical Counsellor (#12739) with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors, I offer individual counselling in Vancouver for youth and adults.  I have a Masters of Counselling Psychology degree from Athabasca University. It is a blessing to use my education and experience from working in various counselling settings over the last decade to serve you.
Do you ever think about whether you handle certain areas of life well?  Feel you are not where you want to be, have too much going on, are stressed, put yourself last, and sometimes struggle with letting things go?  If so, I invite you to meet with me so we can explore what is going on. 
Together we can:   
 • Explore your needs and boundaries
• Find freedom from shame, self-blame, and worry
Heal from past relationships and situations
Improve your relationships
• Learn about helpful tools for navigating life's challenges
When we work together, you can expect that I will meet you where you are at, treat you with respect and dignity, and make sure the therapeutic approaches I use fit your specific concerns. 

 My core values that guide my life and my time with you are:

• Expectancy
• Encouragement
• Connection
• Health
• Grace

More information about what these core values mean to me and how they will guide our time together can be found on my website.

In terms of my areas of practice, my current specialties are:

Life and Cultural Transitions
Personal Growth

The therapeutic approaches I may use when working with you are:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Dialetical Behavioral Therapy
• Self-Relations Therapy
• Emotion-Focused Therapy
• Solution-Focused Therapy
• Person-Centered Therapy
• Narrative Therapy

More information about the specialties and therapeutic approaches listed above can be found on my website.

I believe what we think, how we feel, what we say, and what we do comes from what is in our hearts.  There have been many times in my life where what I thought, felt, said, and did showed me that my heart needed help and healing.  Past experiences that I had no control over, my upbringing, and some choices I made all contributed to my heart not being as well or as healthy as it could be.  Perhaps this is the same for you.  If so, I want you to know that it's not your fault and there is hope.

At Encounter Counselling, I am passionate about serving and supporting you towards a life full of peace, joy, hope, purpose, and connection.  I look forward to hearing from you.
