I work with individuals and families to address issues including mental health/wellness and substance use. Talk therapy has consistently been demonstrated as an effective component towards positive change. Over 20 years of talk therapy outcome research has consistently proven the importance of tracking change from the client’s perspective and developing a strong alliance between the client and therapist. I will work with you to identify meaningful goals for change and the approach that fits for you.
I am a Clinical Fellow of the BC Association of Marriage and Family Therapy, and a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors. I have over 30 years of experience with relationship challenges; parenting; step-family issues; substance use; emotional reactivity; self-image; stress and worry; empowerment/confidence.
I use a variety of evidence based approaches respecting the power of working with the client’s perspective and significant relationships in supporting lasting positive change. My goal is to assist you to feel encouraged to take action in your life that supports the changes you want.
I am a partner in a counselling practice with several registered counsellors at the Centre for Counselling and Therapy on the second floor of Market Square, in downtown Victoria. Collectively we have many years of experience and a wide array of skills. The advantage to you is that potential wisdom.
