About Me:
I wholeheartedly believe in a collaborative approach to counselling. I do
not see myself as the driver of the process, but the passenger that is there
to help guide you. I believe that each individual has a unique story and
requires a therapeutic approach tailored to their needs. I strive to create a
comfortable space that gives clients the safety to be vulnerable. I understand the
importance of safety and connection to the therapist from my own experience of
attending counselling. I feel honored to be invited to walk along an individual’s
journey towards wellness and empowerment. I am constantly amazed at the
strength and commitment that people have to make positive change in their life.
 
When not at work I enjoy spending time with my two small boys
and dog. I like to remain active and engage in outdoor activities. I am also an
avid bookworm. I love to travel – usually I go somewhere near the ocean!

Education and Work Experience:
I have a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of the
Fraser Valley. I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) and a Registered
Social Worker (RSW). I have been formally trained to provide Emotion-focused
Family Therapy. This modality can be used in individuals and with families. My
work experience includes working in mental health, health care, providing
support to families, individual therapy, and group therapy. I have worked in
the counselling field since 2010.
