I am a registered Psychologist with a Master of Arts degree in Counselling from Gonzaga University, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology (with distinction) from the University of Victoria. I have over 20 years of counselling experience working with adolescents and adults in a variety of settings. I have experience working with clients struggling with a diverse range of issues including life transitions, stress management, anxiety, depression, relationship challenges, anger, trauma and substance abuse.
I admire the courage it takes to seek counselling to work through life’s challenges. I strive to create a safe, non-judgemental, compassionate environment that is built on respect, warmth, openness and honesty. My counselling style is collaborative, and focuses on increasing self-awareness, fostering insights, increasing confidence, taking healthy risks, acceptance of self and managing the obstacles preventing growth, development and change.
I believe Counselling is a process that takes individuals on a journey, helping people to connect with the truth of themselves, which can lead to a life that is more authentic and rewarding.
