I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors. A graduate from UBC in Biopsychology and City University in Counselling Psychology, I have worked in the Sea to Sky Corridor since 2006 supporting and counselling adults and families experiencing a wide range of difficult life stressors and mental health concerns. My focus in therapy is to develop a safe and confidential therapeutic relationship that provides the foundation for exploring underlying issues that may be barriers to your quality of life and wellbeing.
Living with stress, anxiety, depression, grief/loss, relationship conflict, postpartum depression/anxiety, and substance use can be isolating and disconnecting. I work alongside individuals helping them to connect with their emotional, mental, physical and spiritual selves to empower their inherent capacity to change and grow. Some examples of how I help people improve their lives include: develop emotional coping strategies, change unhelpful thinking patterns, transform self-defeating attitudes, restore lifestyle balance, and discover meaning and purpose.
Collaboratively we will identify therapy goals and create the change you are seeking. I have lived in Squamish since 2000 and enjoy reading about exceptional human beings, practicing mindfulness meditation, and spending time with my family in our beautiful backyard.
