Being a “helper” has always been in my nature. I find a true sense of purpose in knowing I have been of service assisting others in their journey to self improvement, providing an empathetic sounding board, and non-judgemental guidance. I believe that counselling is a collaborative process in which my role is to walk alongside each of my clients, providing them with the emotional support and psycho-educational tools to draw upon the strength & solutions that inherently lie within them. I work with adult individuals, those seeking relationship & marriage counselling, and women during their prenatal/postpartum period.

If your child is struggling at home, at school, with peers, or dealing with difficult life experiences, you as a caregiver can feel at a loss for what to do. As a therapist, I tap into each young person's innate coping skills and creativity, by providing an accepting space for self-expression and growth, and new skills. I also know that parents need support and ideas about how to help children navigate through life, so I involve families in treatment in many creative ways. I partner with you and the important people in your child's life, such as teachers, caregivers and other professionals to better support your family.

I work with those who are motivated, yet uncertain of their next steps. They desire or need someone's trustworthy integrity to support them through their changes and growth. They are willing to put the action & effort into themselves for it. They are willing to risk stepping into the unknown. My ideal client wants a guide to their power and to move away from self-punishment. They are those who have become lost, wandering in circles of their hurt -- confused or disconnected from life in & around them - For these I am in service.

The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall. -(Nelson Mandela) The truth is that we all fall at times. We experience loss, grief, accidents, health and mental health challenges. And when we do, often we can get ourselves up again with no or little help. Sometimes, though, it is helpful, if not essential, to have professional help. You don't have to do this on your own. With the right help you can add tools, skills, insights that will enhance your quality of life.

Throughout my practice I emphasize safety -- my goal and passion is to offer a safe and compassionate space. Dr. Alan Schore states that "psychotherapy is not the 'talking cure' but the affect communicating and regulation cure". This 'regulated' neurophysiological state can only happen when in our body is 'safe', which is why it is an integral part of my practice. Are you looking to uncover your fullest expression of life, struggling to maintain meaningful relationships, or behaving in ways you would like to reduce or stop? Your life is now, please allow yourself the space to expand, you deserve to feel alive.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Penticton?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Penticton specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
