I have a Bachelor and Master's Degree in Social Work from UBC and over 20 years experience helping others with mental health, addictions, and relationship issues in a variety of health care, community and social service settings. When you come in for counselling support, I start by creating a relaxed atmosphere where you feel safe and reassured that you've found someone who can help you truly face the issues you're experiencing. Sometimes, the stress of life can be overwhelming and your world becomes very narrow.
We will work together as a team to develop the skills and flexibility you need to not only improve how you function but to actually enjoy all that home, work, and the rest of life brings to you. I am committed to providing you with the tools and techniques necessary to overcome life's obstacles & achieve a balanced fulfilling life.
Each person and couple I work with is unique and as such, I utilize a variety of different treatment methods based on what will work best for you. You will always be well informed of what we are doing, why we are doing it, and how this will lead to long lasting improvements in your quality of life. Looking for a counsellor is the first big step!!!

Sometimes, the stress of life can be overwhelming and your world becomes very narrow. No matter what we attempt to do, pain and suffering will, at some point, creep into our lives. Having the capacity to handle this pain is essential to living a fulfilling life. I will support you to connect to your thoughts, feelings, memories and patters of behavior with the goal of getting you engaged in life.
