I believe life can be joyful and fulfilling yet challenging and difficult at the same time. Sometimes, we need extra support to understand and cope with our hardships. As a counsellor, my purpose is to create a safe, respectful, and nonjudgmental space where clients can navigate challenges and roadblocks, learn new skills, and find the support they need to not just cope but truly thrive.

 

My approach to counselling is shaped by a person-centred, attachment- and trauma-informed perspective. I work with children (9 and older), youth, adults, couples, and families dealing with a wide range of challenges. Understanding that each person is unique, I pull from various treatment modalities, including emotion-focused therapy (EFT), dialectical-behaviour therapy (DBT), cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and narrative therapy, tailoring my approach to best fit my client’s unique needs.

 

I am deeply passionate about nurturing the emotional health and well-being of individuals, couples, and families. Over the past twenty years, I have dedicated my career to supporting youth, young adults, and their families through mental health crises in community and hospital settings. I have worked with individuals from diverse backgrounds, considering their unique experiences related to gender, race, sexuality, spirituality, and family dynamics from a holistic perspective. 

 

I am genuinely excited to bring my experience and compassion to South Delta Counselling and Wellness, where I strive to foster positive change and growth for the individuals, couples, and families whom I have the honour of supporting.
