About Me


I attended Simon Fraser University and hold a Bachelor’s of Arts Degree in Criminology. While attending university I was introduced to Restorative Justice and volunteered for many years both in the Alternatives to Violence Program (AVP) within the correctional system and the North Shore Restorative Justice Society as a Restorative Justice Mediator. I have several years of experience working with youth in my role as a Youth and Family Worker with the School Board. I graduated from Adler University with a Master’s in Counselling Psychology. I have extensive experience working in both private and not-for-profit agencies with youth and adults experiencing challenges related to their own or a loved one’s substance misuse. I provide client-centered counselling to adults from a neurodiversity affirming, anti-oppressive perspective. 

Narrative Therapy

Is a modality of therapy that operates with the foundational understanding that the person is separate from the problem. Narrative therapy is unique in that it lends itself to bridging the gap between micro- and macro-level frameworks. Narrative therapy deconstructs the stories that we have written for ourselves. It is a form of community-led counselling and encourages people to rely on their own skill sets to navigate the issues that exist in their everyday lives. 

Adlerian Therapy

Adlerian counselling focuses on the understanding of the unique individual, taking a social-psychological, developmental and cognitive perspective. Adlerian counsellors may focus on areas such as how an individual sees themselves and the world, early life experiences, goal orientation, uniqueness, social-identity and the role of emotions.

A bit about me

I grew up in a small town in Ontario and moved to British Columbia as a teenager. I’m an introvert, who cares and feels deeply for others and the world. I value kindness, play, creativity, nature, knowledge and humour (to name a few). I’m a proud mother, an avid reader and I aspire to learn the guitar. I am truly grateful to be a therapist, and I highly respect everyone who does the work to inspire growth within themselves and the greater world.
