About Lucia

Perhaps you’re here because you have a deep longing to know who you are and what you want from life… but something is holding you back. Or you may be having difficulty processing something challenging, such as an unexpected medical diagnosis, relationship issues, or a sudden loss. If you are feeling paralyzed by fear, anxiety or a sense of stuckness when you think of the decisions and changes you want or need to make, know that we ALL experience similar feelings at different points in our lives. I certainly have. Though right now you might feel stuck and having difficulty seeing a way forward through the pain or fear,  I want to you know that the possibilities awaiting you are endless!


Together, we will explore where you want to go and what what you envision and want from of your life. We will work with a compassionate lens, while expanding emotional expression and shifting beliefs. I will also guide you in reflecting on what is holding you back from making this vision a reality and how your past experiences might be playing a role. Your dream career, relationships that nourish you and an everyday sense of fulfillment you experience every day are all within your reach.

I feel privileged to support you on this path, as I am no stranger to challenging life changes and transitions myself. My experience with immigration, career transitions and navigating life following an unexpected medical diagnosis has given me unique insight into how to support others going through their own experiences that feel terrifying or simply overwhelming. Facing fear and learning how to dance along the edges of my own comfort zone has made me deeply passionate about supporting clients on similar journeys build a stronger sense of self-worth as well as a life they are proud of and that feels good!

Guiding others to reach their potential is one of my top personal values, and I strongly believe that you, and each and every one of my clients has a deep capacity for this growth.  I hold a Master of Education degree in Counselling Psychology from the University of British Columbia. I welcome diverse clients of all ages, cultures, genders, sexual orientations and abilities.
