In the very deepest part of me, I believe in the potential of people. To help others imagine better and make it a reality is the highest calling I can imagine.
I have been teaching 13- to 16-year-olds in alternate and First Nation schools since 1997 — my dream from the time I was 12-years-old! I have a soft spot for cats and dogs and humans in distress!
Having dared to imagine better I find myself living my dream – but my journey was complicated. Maybe yours is, too?
I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Creative Writing; a Bachelor of Education; a Masters of Education; and a Masters of Counselling Psychology.
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (RCC#13847).
My areas of practice include (but aren’t limited to): relationship difficulties (family, romantic, workplace, friendships), maladaptive behaviours (including addiction to porn).
Teens and adults are welcome. I am a proud ally of the LGBTQ+ community (Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity safe). All genders, identities, and orientations welcomed.
I use Reality Therapy (William Glasser) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Retraining) as my main methodologies, and draw from compatible understandings when appropriate.
