Congratulations on taking this first step by reaching out for help.
Talking to someone makes a difference and I am here to listen. I will help you better understand your circumstances and resolve your struggles.
I earned my Master of Counselling degree from City University in Vancouver, British Columbia. I am registered as a Canadian Certified Counsellor (#5471) with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association.
In my private practice, I work with individuals struggling with a range of challenges such as anxiety, depression, grief and loss, stress, work-related problems, relationship issues and life transitions.
I am an empathetic and compassionate listener, and I counsel without judgement. My goal is to cultivate a safe environment and develop a trusting relationship through therapeutic conversations. I believe that your personal story shapes you, and influences the choices you make. With effective guidance, all individuals have the tools and ability to make life changes. My role will be to facilitate growth and empower you to take the necessary steps to make positive changes and heal.
I work with individuals on a wide range of personal and interpersonal issues. My primary areas of specialty are women and men in mid-life who are experiencing struggles such as:
- Low self-esteem
- Work problems
- Parenting/family issues (separation, divorce, aging parents)
- Relationship challenges
“Change your thoughts and you change your world”

My therapeutic approach is solution-focused and client-centred. I practice by integrating techniques from various therapeutic modalities tailored to suit you.
Therapeutic Modalities Used in Practice Include:
- Brief Therapy (Solution-Focused Model)
- Client-Centered Therapy
- Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
- Interpersonal Therapy
- Family Systems Therapy (FST)
How do you know if I am the right counsellor or therapist for you?
It’s all about fit. My clients often tell me they appreciate my ability to connect with them, respect them, and guide them to look at their circumstances in ways they might not have thought of on their own.
With the right therapeutic fit, I believe you will benefit from my expertise in helping you deal with the issues that you are bringing to counselling and therapy.
