I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the BCACC, offering psychotherapy services in Gastown, Vancouver. I hold a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology from Adler University, and an undergraduate degree in Psychology and Women’s Studies from the University of Victoria. I have further training in motivational interviewing, crisis intervention, and 200 hours of yoga teacher training as well as 200 hours of meditation and mindfulness training.
I have been working in the field of mental health for almost a decade, across a variety of organizations. My current practice includes work as a Concurrent Disorders Clinician in the BC Psychosis Unit at UBC Hospital, Crisis Intervention work with the Vancouver Police Department Victim Services team, and in private practice serving teens and adults. Additionally, I serve as the Director of the Street Feet Society, a Vancouver-based non-profit organization focused on educating youth and serving Vancouver's homeless population.
I offer services with a background in a range of modalities and serve diverse populations. A common theme for my clients is a feeling of repeating patterns - in their behaviours, relationships and ways of thinking. With this in mind, I support my clients in addressing their current experiences, as well as identifying connections to deeper emotions and beliefs that they hold. My work is guided by trauma-informed, and client-centered principles, allowing my clients to maintain autonomy throughout our work.
I currently offer counselling services for youth (12+), teens, and adults of all genders, with a special interest in supporting self-identified women and first responders.
