I am a seasoned professional psychotherapist and counsellor with 25+ years’ experience.
I have worked in various locations and roles, from individual, couple’s and group therapist or counsellor to clinical supervisor and program manager. But I have always maintained a focus on private practice. My greatest joy is working with individuals who are serious about the pursuit of their own answers. Client’s often present with an underlying fear or shame about ‘needing help.’ You should know that, whatever your concern or struggle is, you are not the first to have met with or struggled with that issue.
I’ve been licensed as a clinical counsellor in three states (as well as having been Board-Certified by American Counselling Association), hold Registered Psychotherapist (RP) from the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO), and am registered as a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with the BC-ACC.
Aside from being a seasoned therapist or counsellor, with a variety of ‘tools’ to use during our sessions, I consider my greatest strength to be in creating a space where you can express yourself safely, and be heard with genuine empathy.
I work with most populations, i.e., aboriginal/indigenous people, the LGBTQ population, general mental health issues with both individuals and couples, trauma victims, domestic abuse issues, and alternative lifestyle issues as well.

Please note that I am currently out of Province and is the reason for offering only phone and internet or e-counselling at this time. I am in the process of transitioning back to BC shortly.
I look forward to working with you on your journey to a better space!
Wishing You Peace in the Space Between…
