If you see me for therapy I think you will find me warm and patient. I know it is brave to seek therapy and is only done when absolutely necessary. I am very interested in understanding what brings you to therapy and what changes you would like to make.
I see clients from different ages, genders and employment situations. Clients who work with me are often experiencing barriers to important life goals such as having strong relationships, achieving professional success, living authentically or just being happier. I commit to using all of my skills, experience and best self to help you remove these barriers and reach your goals.
Examples of issues I have helped clients with: depression; anxiety; trauma; burnout; codependence; parenting issues; self-defeating numbing patterns such as screens, food, alcohol, weed etc; low self-esteem; setting boundaries; OCD; removing barriers to being your authentic self; overcoming the effects of self-centred or narcissistic parents, to name a few.
I have been a psychotherapist for over 15 years. I have a Masters in Counselling Psychology from UBC and additional intensive training in Mindful Psychotherapy and Internal Family Systems. I am grateful to have received exceptional mentoring from highly skilled therapists at every stage of my career. Currently I participate in an Internal Family Systems consultation and peer supervision group.
My current approach is informed by Internal Family Systems (IFS), Mindfulness, Self-Compassion and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I ran Mindfulness groups for several years. I find IFS is often the most effective and efficient method of transforming self-defeating patterns. I am happy to discuss whether it is right for you.
I take seriously the investment you are making in yourself and the trust you place in me to help you. My goal is for you to not need me. I will stick with you as long as you are happy with the progress you are making towards your goals.
