Registered Clinical Counsellor
I am grateful to be able to conduct work and be located on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
I strongly believe in the power of the human spirit, the ability to overcome obstacles, and that the phoenix rises from the ashes. I have witnessed brave people willing to face challenges, willing to learn, and willing to change. I believe my role is to support each person who wishes to grow, grow — who wishes to heal, heal — and who wishes to learn, learn. I support each person uniquely, and together we will face your current life challenges and move through them towards a brighter and better tomorrow.
