About Me

I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors, with a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology. I am a certified Instructor and Coach in the Centre for Conflict Resolution at the Justice Institute of BC. 

 

My approach is rooted in the Adlerian theory of Individual Psychology. I believe that experiences in life, starting in our childhood, create a web of interconnected thoughts, feelings and logic that guide our daily interpretations, actions, and decision making processes. 

 

Subconscious patterns likely served us well at some point, but they may not be serving us now.  

I believe that with insight, courage, and support, everyone has the ability to understand, change and adapt their default patterns.  Therapy can help you understand your own patterns of thoughts, and your underlying beliefs and assumptions.  From there you can evaluate your current situation and choose what you want to change, and how you want to move forward. 

 

Often the very things you think hold you back, are also the things that can help you succeed.  Together we can tap into your natural dispositions and strengths to overcome barriers, and create the life you want for yourself.

INDIVIDUAL COUNSELLING

50 minutes - $120
75 minutes - $150


The relationship between the therapist and client requires trust, connection and a good “fit”.  Please contact me for a free phone consultation, (usually 15 - 30 minutes) to discuss your goals for counselling, and ask any questions you might have about what to expect.

RELATIONSHIP COUNSELLING

75 minutes - $150
(two people)

Personal relationships can be complicated.  You might be looking for help communicating effectively with a romantic partner, a parent, a sibling, or a close friend.


When you are ready to come for counselling together, I can help.  

In addition to my academic studies, I have received practical training in different therapies specific to relationship counselling. I borrow the skills and techniques of the collection of approaches I have learned to suit the style and needs of my clients.  We can discuss what you feel will work best for you, and we can adjust how we work as we go.  

The relationship between the therapist and both clients requires trust, connection and a good “fit”.  Please contact me for a free phone consultation, (usually 15 - 30 minutes) to discuss your goals for counselling, and ask any questions you might have about what to expect.

CONFLICT COACHING AND MEDIATION

1 hour - $150

Conflicts inevitably come up at work, with family and friends, and others.   If you have a specific conflict, or you are facing a challenging conversation with someone, I can help you prepare.  Our emphasis will be on practical preparation rather than deep therapeutic healing.

Together we can clearly define what you need. Then we can develop and practice some strategies that will help you navigate the challenging conversation so you feel good about both the outcome, and the relationship! 

I also provide workplace mediation. 

CAREER COUNSELLING

50 minutes - $120
75 minutes - $150

It is not uncommon to find yourself facing a workplace stressor.  Common issues are: problems with a coworker or supervisor; returning to work after an absence; wondering what the best next step is in your career and how to get there; and sorting out what retirement is going to look like.  Maybe you know where you want to go but you aren't sure how to get there.  Or maybe you are trying to find that perfect balance between your paid work and all the other things you value in your life.  I have the tools to help you gain the clarity you seek.

The relationship between the therapist and client requires trust, connection and a good “fit”.  Please contact me for a free phone consultation, (usually 15 - 30 minutes) to discuss your goals for counselling, and ask any questions you might have about what to expect.
