My guiding principle is that the therapeutic process is deeply personal and unique and, therefore, must be tailored to the particular needs of each client to achieve their optimal health and wellness. With warmth, compassion and empathy, I help my clients to (re)discover their needs and strengths, and to pursue their desired well-being, with attention to issues related to the individual’s culture, trauma, gender, and circumstances. I practice from a humanistic, strengths-based, solution-focused model as well as a psychodynamic perspective. My approach is holistic, non-judgmental, anti-oppressive, authentic, nurturing, and eclectic.

I provide counselling, psychotherapy and supervision services. My practice is guided by extensive experience working with people coming from various socioeconomic backgrounds as well as many years of serving the most vulnerable communities in Vancouver’s DTES. While my approach is integrative of modern theories and techniques, it heavily relies on Psychodynamic theories and practice. Psychodynamic Psychotherapy is a highly individualized treatment whose goal is not only to alleviate the most obvious symptom. It relies on the fact that our personalities are uniquely shaped by several developmental stages.

It takes courage to seek and begin therapy, and I value and respect that. I am passionate about working with all people, however they choose to identify themselves. I work with adults, young to old. I consider each individual as a "world unto themself"; I work with your goals, your spark, your way. My goal is to help you find the tools to move towards what you most want. I'm on your side. I draw from therapies such as solution focused, trauma based, CBT and ACT. Possibility lies in the present - what we do, how we choose to act, alone and with others - this is the arena of change.

Connecting with a counselor that can create a space that is safe, non judgemental, culturally responsive, and affirming can allow for a deeper exploration into our relationships with ourselves, others, and the environment. As a queer Indigenous person who works in the mental health field, I've had extensive experience decolonizing traditional therapeutic techniques to work for Indigenous individuals, families, youth, and communities. My goal is to build a relationship with you and develop a deep understanding of your unique identities and life experience to help support you on your journey and with your goals.

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 Vancouver?
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 Vancouver 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.
