​I am here for you: Life can be quite the challenge; there are situations we never expected, struggles we couldn't have prepared for, and circumstances we find ourselves overwhelmed by. All too frequently, I hear from people that they didn't know what to do, or who to talk to, or how they ended up in a place where the world isn't making sense. In these times, people tend to feel trapped, beaten down, alone, exhausted, or just at a loss, and often have tried everything they can think of to re-order, heal, and reorient their lives. Connecting with a counsellor can help. I offer a space for you to speak freely and you'll be met with acceptance and support. Whatever is happening for you, I believe we can change your life for the better.

Service

Counselling sessions are offered by video conferencing or phone at this time, or by Walk & Talk Therapy in Port Moody. For video & phone sessions, I am accepting individuals, couples, and families. Virtual counselling can be as effective as in person counselling.I have availability in the early morning, early afternoon, and evening most days of the week; check my scheduled hereFor Walk & Talk Therapy, an initial phone or video intake session is required to assess suitability. Many people appreciate the experience of having a therapy session outdoors walking side-by-side with a counsellor, and the evidence shows that it is as effective.

Other

Outside of my private practice, I live a very full and normal life (just human). I have a full time job, children, a husband, two dogs, and a collection of wonderful friends and family. I run my private practice on the side because I absolutely love what I do, and I can't imagine my life without it - it is an incredibly meaningful and important piece of my life. I am also a content contributor for the Thinkladder App (provides alternate thoughts for limiting beliefs, and is free), and enjoy spending time in nature, sipping hot beverages, and laughing (so much laughing). 

What if it can be better?
