“Hi! I am a Clinical Counsellor specializing in helping people with anxiety and depression, and the addictions, behaviours, and relationships that often develop as a result. I have a private practice in Langley, but I spend most of my time at CBC as the Supervisor of Counselling Services. I have a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology from Trinity Western University and I am a certified member of the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors. I often give talks in the community on anxiety, relationships, and the psychological effects of trauma, and my experience as a counsellor has taken me to some amazing places, like Thailand, and Taiwan.
My counselling style is very relational and I use a number of evidence-based approaches, tailored to each person’s unique needs. In my sessions, I help my people discover the core issues which lead to emotional pain and difficult relationships. I also teach important skills to help them move forward and feel better emotionally, physically, and spiritually. My office in the Counselling Centre is a cozy, safe, and private space where students can come to relax, unload, and figure out what to do next.
I want students to know that I have also walked a difficult path in my life, and that I am no stranger to emotional pain. Along with these struggles I have also found healing and recovery, and my life is now devoted to sharing what I’ve learned with others. It’s such a privilege for me to walk this path alongside CBC students and they courageously seek a purposeful and authentic life
