Going through a hard time? Feeling stuck, anxious, or overwhelmed? Struggling to move beyond a traumatic experience like sexual abuse or assault? Seeking support is never easy so I commend your decision to reach out. I would love to help you.
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with offices in Kitsilano and Downtown Vancouver, BC. I have extensive experience working with individuals, couples, families, and groups facing a variety of concerns including Stress, Anxiety, Trauma, Depression, Interpersonal Conflict, and Relationship Issues. I am a highly dynamic and empathetic individual who has always enjoyed helping others bring out the best within themselves.
My therapeutic approach is customized to each individual client depending on their specific strengths and needs. I have a background in a variety of therapeutic styles both cognitive (such as Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Neurosequential Model, Emotion-Focused Therapy, Somatic Processing, etc.) as well as expressive (such as Art, Movement, and Sand Tray work) methods. Together we’ll decide what will be the most effective approfor you.
Metaphorically speaking, in the maze that can be navigating challenging emotions or situations, I act as a helicopter scout in helping you navigate your way clear. I won’t be the expert in your life and I can’t run the maze for you. I will rely on you to provide the first-hand knowledge of what’s going on. In return, I’ll walk alongside you, offering an unbiased perspective on your situation as well as tools and support based on my professional experience. You don’t have to face it alone.
I believe that counselling is a place to slow down, reflect, identify your needs, and work together with a trained professional towards living a life that feels right to you.
