Let's Connect (343) 308-1812
I have been a counsellor and family therapist for over 30 years, during that time I have worked with a rich diversity of people. Counselling and family therapy is a work that I love. I have found that people carry with them, in their own lives and networks, the strengths, the relationships, and the gifts that enable them to move through the most challenging of situations. I have found that I am able to help people find the possibilities that they need to cope with life’s various challenges.
My work has had several unique focuses through the years, including: children and youth, family therapy, addictions, mental health concerns, criminal justice matters, and I have worked extensively with indigenous communities. I am also an approved clinical supervisor with BC Association of Clinical Counsellors.
I am a professor in a Master of Counselling program. Because of this I am conversant in a wide variety of approaches to helping people. If you are interested in exploring further, I would be pleased to provide you with a 10 minute free consult.
