Registered Clinical Counsellor
I am grateful to be able to conduct work and be located on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc.
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor who finds joy in connecting deeply with other humans. I can offer support as you navigate your life’s natural ebb and flow, welcoming both the highs and the lows as each can provide meaning and perhaps undiscovered opportunities. In the spirit of non-judgement, I encourage embracing the full emotional experience, believing it adds to the richness of imperfection that is being alive. Allowing yourself to feel, to think, to act, to learn, and to grow in new ways is more manageable when accompanied by others who accept you fully with compassion and kindness; I hope to one of those people for you.
