About

I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC). I hold a bachelor’s degree from the University of Toronto and a master’s degree from the University of Northern British Columbia and am passionate about providing person-centered and trauma-informed care to client's with diverse mental health needs. I have experience providing compassionate care and support to those who are struggling with mood and anxiety disorders, childhood trauma, emotional dysregulation, and relationship issues. She has a special interest in working with those who engage in self-harm behaviours.
Often, there is an assumption that the problems that people face are internal, without looking at the larger systems and contexts. I strive to approach counselling from an understanding of the importance of equity, access, and empowered participation in client’s lives. I am providing a 24 week DBT skills group starting Wednesday October 5th, 2022 6-8pm PST
I work from a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) framework and have experience facilitating DBT skills groups. I believe that people are doing the best they can given their current level of skills and experiences to date. At the same time, I believe that people can always exceed their “best” in the next moment.
