Who I Am
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology from the University of British Columbia.
My counselling career began 30 years ago in child and youth mental health where I had the privilege of working with children (ages 6-18) and their families. This work experience underscored the pain a child can endure, but also renewed my sense of hope when they overcame their challenges. Over time, I developed my passion for supporting mothers who were concerned about their child’s mental health but neglected their own.
Through helping hundreds of families and individuals learn to love themselves again, I honed my skills and training for working with adults to heal past issues, repair relationships and, if they had children, to end the cycle of pain. I feel I have come full circle in my attachment work helping women, men and parents heal their past to live more freely in the present.
I am a wife, mother, good friend and have navigated through my own life challenges.
I have training in:
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
- Family Constellation work
- Emotion Focused Family Therapy (EFFT)
- Trauma informed research
- Attachment theory
- Somatic Experiencing
I provide counselling by video, and in person for those in North Vancouver, West Vancouver, Vancouver and Burnaby.
