“ I have 35 years counseling experience, I am a registered clinical counsellor (RCC) with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors, certified in the province of BC for 20 years, and certified Canadian counsellor with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. I am certified in the following areas: QPRT Suicide Risk Assessment and Management, Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy, Level One Certified Observed & Experiential Integration (OEI) Therapist, Trainer Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Level One, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Level Two Enactment Therapy Level One and Two.
I provide counselling to individuals, couples and families. I have extensive experience in trauma/PTSD and attachment.

Counselling services should be comfortable. Taking that first step to seek help, can sometimes be the hardest step of all.

I look forward to working with you and watching your transformation!
