Find Peace in Difficult Times
I’m so glad you’re taking this step toward making yourself a priority in your life.
I strive to empower adults whose lives are impacted by feelings of helplessness and heartache due to life changes. When we lose a loved one, a job, a house, a pet, or when a relationship heads in an unexpected direction, we can feel lost. Counselling can be the first step toward moving away from heartache and finding peace in such difficult times. It is the most natural thing in the world to want to connect with others, and when this is challenged it can be intensely painful. I am honoured to walk beside you in support.
Whether I am the best choice for you or another counsellor meets your needs, counselling is for you. This is why I prize your feedback within each session, so each session can be tailored to your needs. I use Feedback Informed Treatment (FIT) every session, giving clients an opportunity to voice what is important to them in their counselling.

Areas of Practice
When we meet, it is so important that you feel safe, comfortable and seen. I strive every day to be an ally to the LGBTQIA2S+ community, and I recognize and respect that my clients determine whether or not I have been that ally for them.
I also strive to be of support to all ethnicities and cultures. I work to educate myself so I can uphold standards of multicultural counselling, but most of all, so I can be of service to all.
I humbly acknowledge my identity as a settler and that my home and office are located on the occupied and unceded Coast Salish Territory of the Lekwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ nations. I give monthly donations to the Indian Residential School Survivors Society as 'rent' and partial reparation for the land I occupy.
Virtual Counselling is Convenient & Effective
I will continue to offer sessions over Zoom as they are highly effective, confidential, and may make scheduling sessions easier due to ease of access. Throughout the pandemic, I have found that virtual sessions have proven to be convenient, constructive, and reliable for my clients. A study done by McMaster University gives evidence of virtual therapy being just as effective as in-person therapy when treating mood disorders, anxiety and trauma (Evans et al., 2020), so I am confident in continuing to offer my services virtually.
