I am a Registered Professional Counsellor with a Diploma in Transpersonal Counselling from Clearmind International as well undergraduate degrees in Psychology and Business.
I first began counselling while I was completing a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Victoria, working as a lay counsellor and later a street social worker. I spent three years of intense experiential counsellor training at the Clearmind International Institute and have advanced training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. I volunteer as a counsellor with the Citizens Counselling Center as a couples counsellor, and have facilitated groups exploring anger management and mindfulness meditation. In the past I have volunteered my services as a lay counsellor, crisis counsellor, big brother and a suicide response outreach worker.
I have experience working with individuals and couples, facilitating group counselling sessions, mentoring business executives, and teaching a counselling program.
I've also done extensive personal work, such as you are considering now, believing in the philosophy of healing myself first before healing others.
I offer a compassionate and accepting counselling environment where you can feel safe and heard.
My services are covered by many extended medical plans.
I am committed to providing you with the help you need – if I am not the right counsellor for you, I will help you find the one who is.
I offer sliding scale rates to those clients on limited incomes.
