I offer counselling from an attachment perspective that is emotion focused and somatically based. My education, research and practice has specifically focused on understanding deeply and responding compassionately while supporting resilience in adults, youths, and families who have experienced trauma and/or abuse. I regard forming a warm, authentic relationship with you, based on empathy and respect, as foundational to good counselling. This means that I will treat you with dignity and fully attend to hearing and understanding your experience and how you feel about it.
As a member of the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors, I have met rigorous academic requirements, am committed to high professional standards of practice, and adhere to the BCACC code of ethical conduct.
I am registered as a service provider with FNHA, ICBC, and the Crime Victims Assistance Program of BC, which provides financial assistance for individuals (and their families) who have been victims of a violent crime including physical and sexual abuse.
