About

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.
I specialize in helping clients to develop an understanding of their present situation, to learn skills and tools to cope with and overcome challenges. I pay particular attention to the client process of meaning making and how a client's lived experience shapes their thoughts, beliefs and feelings.
I strive to create a safe, comfortable environment for my clients in which we explore your concerns, identify your goals for therapy and develop a plan for counselling that is respectful of your needs.
