Welcome! I am very honoured that you have chosen to view my website. The decision to understand ourselves in greater depth takes great courage and strength. I congratulate you on taking this first step to a journey which will open new worlds of self reflection. Learning and exploring our own selves, ourvalues and belief systems is a priority to follow the dreams we have in our heart.
My academic training took place in Winnipeg, Manitoba. I received my Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Winnipeg. After completing my undergraduate, I chose to pursue a Bachelor of Social Work Degree and a Masters of Social Work Degree, which were received from the University of Manitoba. I am a Registered Social Worker with the BC College of Social Workers (Registration Number: 09604) and a member of the BC Association of Social Workers. I have had the great privilege of practicing the art of therapy for the last 20 years. I have worked with magnificent people of all ages and in various settings (hospital, community, government, academic). My intention is to ensure I create anemotionally and physically safe place for one to express their true feelings and emotions. Without safety, one cannot access the vulnerable places we all have within ourselves. Effective, results oriented therapy requires unmasked honesty and safety is a prerequisite for this exploration of self.
I have clinical training in many treatment modalities however my approach is to work with you in a collaborative and respectful manner which will dictate the methods we may wish to choose to direct our work together
