With 25 years of counselling experience, I bring an extensive toolbox to share with my clients. My approach is guided by my belief that clients are the experts in their own lives and that my role is to listen, support, guide and encourage clients through the change process. Together we explore what stands between where a client wants to be in their life and where they currently are and develop a plan to bridge the gap.

My areas of expertise is EMDR which is a very effective approach to working with all kinds of traumatic experience including PTSD. I have also taken training in Mindfullness Based CBT, Attachment approaches to working with anxiety and depression, Motivational Interviewing, Clinical hypnosis and Occupational Awareness Training for First Responders.

Since moving to a small island on the west coast of BC, my practice has transitioned to being on line using whatever platform works best for clients.
