Registered Clinical Counsellor
Registered Social Worker
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 love counselling because I get to support those who are struggling to find their way through difficulties and realize what they are capable of. I have witnessed people moving through difficult times and finding hope in humanity when they are able to move through their difficulties and find joy, hope and peace again. When people face that which is causing them strife, they grow – and that is my pleasure to bear witness to. My counselling practice foundation is gentle strength. The ‘tough stuff’ doesn’t scare me and with a gentle approach, people often find comfort to share their deep challenges. It is my honour to offer this to all who are willing to share.
