Meet Us


Registered Clinical Counsellor and Certified Sex Addiction Therapist

Approved Mental Health Provider for First Nations Health Authority, BC Emergency Health Services and the Crime Victim Assistance Program.

In 2009 my father died, after a short but painful battle with cancer. When I think of him, I often see him sitting reading a novel under the branches of the weeping willow in the yard of our family home. A lot of my memories of him and my upbringing are of deep and life altering conversations under the branches of that tree. This relationship was one of the best, most meaningful, but also most difficult relationships of my life. This is why my previous company was called Willow Branch and why I chose to keep the logo of the Willow tree for my personal page. 


I bring the synergy of challenge, resiliency, family, purpose and reflection to my approach with counselling, much like my own story with my father. 


I help people heal from the impact of family history, healing from the impact of past hurts and coping patterns while remaining grateful for the lineage. Without addressing these patterns, we often continue to replay them in our current relationships, behaviours and thinking. I can help you find who you are, meet your goals, thrive in new circumstances, encourage resiliency, affirmation and rejuvenation.
