About Me

I have a Masters Degree in Counselling Psychology and have worked as a therapist since 1995.


I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor(RCC) with the BC Association for Clinical Counsellors.  I have extensive experience working with anxiety, depression, trauma, low self-esteem, post traumatic stress, grief and loss, disordered eating, relationship challenges and chronic illness for many years. 

I immigrated to Canada 20 plus years ago which was a huge challenge. I have experienced personal loss and had to learn to adapt and change to life's challenges. Building supports in Canada and reaching out when I needed to was vital to my healing and growth. My personal experiences has shaped who I am as a person and a counsellor today.


My approach is gentle, but focused and I have noticed when clients are in a respectful, caring and safe environment, they can explore challenges in their lives and feel empowered. 


I believe that uncovering people's strengths help them to make more mindful choices . Combining the wisdom of the mind and body allows clients to enrich and stabilize their lives.

I have been fortunate to work with diverse groups of clients. My services are LGBTQ+ inclusive.

With couples we explore unhealthy cycles and through this exploration the couple develops healthy connections for a more loving relationship.
