I began my career as a biologist and teacher; then spent two years volunteering in Africa, and another year travelling overseas. For the past 24 years, I have lived and worked in Central Vancouver Island, providing counselling services and helping people to create healthier futures. I have successfully helped people living with all types of illness and injury, as well as those whose life circumstances have led to stress, anxiety, depression and a desire for change.

I completed a Master in Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University, post-graduate studies with the Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute, currently volunteer as a Somatic Experiencing assistant, and am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (#7098) and Somatic Experiencing Practitioner.

I believe that everyone has the ability to make positive changes in their lives. As a counsellor, my job is to act as a catalyst: speeding up this natural process and helping you to get in touch with your own wisdom and solutions.

In addition to one-on-one services, I offer unique online programs that ease the symptoms of anxiety, depression and post-trauma, and build resilience.

I have specialized experience and training in:

  • Easing depression and anxiety
  • Healing from traumatic events
  • Building healthy relationships
  • Challenging eating disorders
  • Living with chronic health conditions
  • Increasing stress resilience
  • Recovering from grief and loss
  • Navigating life transitions
