 I believe that each person is capable of healing and producing growth and transformation in their life. People continually overcome difficult experiences in life and are able to accomplish more than they can imagine.

I will journey alongside you through the highs and lows as you work through challenges and take steps toward change. You can expect genuineness, compassion, empathy, and laughter throughout this process. My approach to counselling does not involve telling you what to do but is rather about partnering with you to discover and bring about the growth and new direction you long for.

I have a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of the Fraser Valley and am a Registered Clinical Counsellor and a Registered Social Worker. My approach to therapy includes the use of AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy), Narrative Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, EMDR, as well as self-compassion and mindfulness practices. My areas of practice include:

-Trauma

-Depression

-Anxiety

-Life Transitions

-Grief and Loss

-Body Image and Self Esteem

-Couple Therapy  
 
I work with adults, youth, and couples from a variety of cultural backgrounds and identities. I incorporate a social justice-oriented and trauma-informed lens and my approach is always tailored to your unique needs and intersecting identities. I will collaborate with you to ensure that your needs are met and will continually adjust my approach as needed so that it fits for you and is moving you in the direction that you hope for.

I also bring an anti-oppressive lens to the work that I do which means I am constantly holding an awareness of the ways that power and oppression impact and cause suffering for the individuals I work with. I strive to provide a safe, accepting, and empowering space where you can share your stories of both pain and joy and move forward in creating new stories that align with your values and hopes in life.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading a good book, baking something delicious that usually includes chocolate, and connecting with friends and family. I am a mother to two young children and am grateful to have the support of my amazing husband.
 
I am also an Approved Provider for the Crime Victim Assistance Program (CVAP) and have done work with clients through ICBC. In addition to this, many extended health benefits or Employee Assistance programs reimburse counselling services with a RCC or RSW. I also offer online therapy via video conferencing or phone.
