I agree with Carl Roger's position that all humans are oriented towards growth and self-awareness. Behaviours which once served to nurture and protect us, can become habitual and no longer useful. You are the expert in your life, and if you are seeking counselling, it is likely because what once worked is no longer serving you. In times of transition, whether by choice or demand, we often find ourselves needing new skills to cope with our anxiety, depression , panic or burnout. Our relationships are deeply impacted by our ability to communicate our needs, desires, and boundaries, and yet we are taught so few of these skills.

Many of the clients I work with are feeling "stuck" and are looking for support to move towards their goals. Feeling stuck often coincides with feelings of depression and anxiety. My clients and I work together to develop healthy coping strategies and to achieve satisfaction in their daily lives. My therapeutic work is grounded in humanistic and constructivist theories, meaning I believe the relationship between the client and the therapist is essential for fostering change and growth. I am a Registered Psychologist with the College of Psychologists of BC and have over 15 years of training and experience in psychotherapy.

When we feel anxious, depressed , exhausted, isolated, lonely, lost or stuck for too long, it feels like we are caught in a web of pain. In order to ease the pain we may be drawn to addictive substances or behaviors to provide temporary relief. This might help in the short term but can have negative consequences if our addictive tendencies become destructive habits. At the root of our psychological pain are traumatic experiences from the past or negative attitudes toward our self. At our core we often have limiting or negative beliefs that keep us caught in a web of destructive habits. To heal, these beliefs need to be transformed.

You may feel frustrated, angry, sad, worried, fearful, anxious, or depressed . You may need to connect, communicate, or be understood and accepted. Your goals might include gaining self-knowledge, resources, and skills to cope; or finding a sense of purpose and meaning for your quality of life.

My areas of focus include prenatal and postpartum mental health, parenting, trauma, depression and anxiety.
I believe we all have innate resilience and capacity for wellness – sometimes, when we encounter trauma, loss, or stress, we lose touch with those strengths. We may struggle with worry, hopelessness, self-criticism, or feel "stuck." Our relationships may suffer. At these times, we all need and deserve support. I work with each client to build self-compassion, confidence and regulation, gain insight, and grow skills for wellbeing. To me, safe, empathic relationships are the foundation of health and growth. I strive to create a safe space for clients, and attune to the heart of an issue, so that deep, lasting change can occur.

Depression Counsellors
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
