My Story

For over 13 years, I've had the privilege of helping people in a variety of roles and settings, receiving my Master's of Counselling in 2009. I’ve been practicing as a registered clinical counsellor in B.C. since 2020 and began my private practice in June of 2021. I've also served several districts as an elementary school counsellor and middle school counsellor.  I also have experience in group home settings supporting youth and adults with high support needs.  I work with children, youth, and adults.  Areas of focus include anxiety, depression, stress, emotion self-regulation, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), ADHD, and goal setting.  I have a personal and professional background in agriculture as well, so I have a realistic perception of the stressors farmers and producers manage each day.

My practice is rooted in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) which explores the interconnectedness of a person's thoughts, feelings, behaviours, environment, and biology. Integral in my practice includes understanding your anxiety response, how the body is affected, and creating strategies that address these reactions.  I utilize a collaborative, person-centered approach while working with clients to discover and recognize their strengths to address and take action towards their own aspirations.  Through this process we will work to create change in order to achieve client goals using an evidence-based approach.

In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, backpacking, ice hockey, sailing, snorkeling, and learning about Vancouver Island's incredible ecosystem and all the amazing creatures that live here.

I do not offer, "adventure counselling," and am unable to work with youth in school district 62 (Sooke School District) or persons employed in SD62 as I am partially employed in the district and it would be a conflict of interest. If you are interested in a consultation, we can spend a short amount of time finding if we are a good fit.

I acknowledge with respect the Lekwungen-speaking peoples on whose traditional territory we live, work, and play and the Songhees, Esquimalt, and WSÁNEĆ peoples whose historical relationships with the land continues to this day and am grateful for the opportunity to live here.
