About My Practice

Hello and welcome. After enjoying a fulfilling career as a school counsellor and Drama teacher, I made the decision to move into private practice in order to support people in a more comprehensive setting.  In this new setting, I am able to incorporate the powerful TEAM CBT techniques and methods to help my clients conquer their fears, depression, and anxiety.

I have had the privilege of working within a number of diverse communities supporting youth, adults, and families. As a Drama teacher, I experienced firsthand the power of change and growth by listening, collaborating and building trust. Today, these continue to be the primary elements of my counselling practice that I now incorporate within the TEAM CBT framework.   This integrative, trauma-informed approach creates an opportunity to better understand the many thoughts and feelings that shape our choices and experiences. With this understanding comes greater peace, self-acceptance, and happiness.

Together, with support and encouragement, we figure out what isn't working and, in a safe space, work together to change it.   Please email me to set up a free initial online (in BC, CANADA) or in-person (Victoria, BC) consultation.
