"I help people change their lives for the better, no matter where we are starting from. From people who are really caught deep in the struggle with depression or anxiety, to folks who are doing pretty well and hope to further enhance and build on what they already know - I believe if you are human, therapy is a good choice because life can always be better, and counselling can help you get there."

WHO AM I AND WHAT DO I OFFER?
I help people change their lives for the better, no matter where we are starting from. I LOVE the life-changing work I do in helping people feel safety and comfort while enhancing, shifting, and healing. It is an incredibly meaningful and important piece of my life to be with people on the journey and see lives become healthier, more fulfilled, and more meaningful. Hearing people 'own' their value, mindset, choices, and witnessing and growing the skills, insight, and self-compassion that will carry them forward are what drive me.
I provide specialized virtual therapy for anyone in BC who wants life to feel better (because therapy is for EVERYONE, life can always be better, and I have a million dynamic clinical tips and tricks to help people be validated, authentic, and empowered). I use evidence-based interventions and work very hard to bring in expertise for my clients to support strategic and powerful changes, to make sure there is a balance between working hard, feeling everything, and finding laughter and fun in sessions with me and fulfillment in life overall.
I am also a soloprenuer, mama (fur babies & skin babies), and wife with a Master's of Counselling degree, a Registered Clinical Counsellor in BC, Canada, and have about 20 years of experience in mental health. In 2022, I left the corporate world behind to run my private practice, more for the joy of it than anything. 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).
If you are thinking about how working with an RCC can help your life be better, please book a consult or a session; I would love to be there for you.
