I offer 1-hour, confidential counselling sessions by phone $95, from 2 pm, 7 days a week, no waiting list, free 20-min intro phone session. My practice focuses on Whole Self Counselling - attending to the mind, the body, and the spirit as an integrated system. Through my experience working with clients, I see how wellness, healing, awareness, presence, development and happiness are supported by the wonderful whole self. I help clients gain clarity, find relief, feel more at peace, discover meaning and purpose, feel happy and creatively inspired, achieve greater confidence, gain a sense of mastery and control, and feel empowered.

My expertise as a counsellor stems from extensive formal education and clinical practice. I have an MA in Counselling Psychology, am an Erickson Certified Professional Coach (ECPC), and a Certified Gestalt Therapist, Gestalt Institute of Toronto. My background is in holistic health, wellness and nutrition as a former Registered Acupuncturist in BC (R.Ac).

Phone sessions are powerful, engaging, convenient, confidential, safe, effective. I help clients with relationships, ADHD/ADD, communication skills, anxiety, depression, codependency, parenting, family dynamics, decision-making, goal setting, life transitions, OCD, eating disorders, past trauma, self development, grief and loss and personal growth.
