About

I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with a background in emotion management, respectful and assertive communication, and mediation. I acknowledge I have the privilege of working on the unceded and traditional lands of the Coast Salish peoples. I have more than 15 years of experience working with individuals, families and organizations and more than 10 years as co-host and co-producer of "It Takes a Village" parenting and family radio program. My therapeutic approach is informed by client-centred therapy, mindfulness and exploring interactions between emotions, thoughts and behaviour.
Clients find me easy to talk to, non-judgmental, and open to a variety of viewpoints. When I hear about what's happening for you, we can work together to develop practical ways that you can find clarity in the feelings that arise, communicate more productively and get more of what you want out of your relationships.
These are uncertain and unprecedented times. If you are going through something difficult or feeling overwhelmed, don't hesitate to email, text or phone me to arrange a time to talk or meet. Reaching out can be your first step to feeling better.
