Let's Connect (778) 766-5493
I have 20 years experience working with adolescents & adults (incl. couples) dealing with a variety of mood/anxiety problems, trauma, & relationship difficulties. I provide a structured space to help you explore and identify challenges, and experience different ways of being. Good therapy is not just talking about problems; it requires sorting through layers of emotion, understanding how you protect yourself from emotional pain; identifying & challenging negative thoughts/beliefs; and identifying personal strengths & resources.
Overall, my approach is warm, compassionate and direct. My work is heavily influenced by developmental psychology & attachment theory. I am trained in several evidence-based approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), & trauma-based approaches.
If you are ready to take the powerful step to address your emotional health, I am here to work with you. Together, we will identify the problem and create a plan to help you move forward, find peace, and reconnect with what is meaningful in your life.
