Areas of Focus

Understanding the intricacies of individuals is like unraveling a unique tapestry, and I genuinely believe that there’s no universal ‘one size fits all’ approach to counselling. I find joy and fulfillment in working with diverse issues and populations, tailoring my approach to meet the unique needs of each person. From my experience, I’ve developed comfort and competence in addressing a variety of concerns. My toolkit of therapeutic modalities is just as diverse, and I take the time to genuinely connect with my clients before deciding on the most suitable method. It’s this personalized and friendly approach that ensures we embark on a therapeutic journey that feels right for you. I welcome diverse clients regardless of their culture, gender, class, sexual orientation, ability, or other identities, and I have experience working with children (3 and up), youth, and adults. I am also trained in family therapy and couples therapy. I am also trained to provide supervised family visitations.

Outside of Work

I wear many hats in life – mother, sister, aunt, friend and partner. I am an adventurer at heart and I love to explore and experience different cultures and places. Most recently, I have enjoyed travelling to Mexico and experiencing the unique and vibrant culture there. When at home in Vancouver, I enjoy sea kayaking and how it has allowed me to intimately explore British Columbia’s Pacific Coast by water. 

As a Gemini, my love for change has been a constant thread throughout my diverse experiences. I’ve embraced numerous transitions, from owning and operating a coffee shop and a bed and breakfast, to managing various childcare facilities, and dedicating many years to working in Community Services. Amidst these changes, my unwavering love for people has remained a cornerstone in my life. My foundation is built on the cherished connections with friends and family, who I consider my greatest treasures.
