Counselling for Youth & Adults
I work from a hopeful place and believe that each person has the inherent capacity to grow and heal.

When we make space for our deepest doubts, fears and longings, we can find the way to freedom and authenticity.



When life brings challenges, it can be confusing, overwhelming and lonely. Counselling is one way to lighten the burden and open to new ways of understanding and being.


In counselling, you can explore your uncensored thoughts and feelings without fear of judgement.


You can work through pain and self-doubt to find your own sources of strength, meaning and purpose.

With a trauma-informed approach, I make sure we are working in a collaborative way that feels comfortable and manageable for you and that helps you expand your capacity and reach your goals.

Beyond Land Acknowledgement

I live and work on the homelands of the W̱SÁNEĆ Nations and the Lekwungen peoples of the Songhees Nation and Esquimalt Nation


I recognize that I have benefited from the theft and colonization of these lands. As a small but tangible act of reparation, I make an annual contribution of 1% of the earnings from my counselling practice, divided equally between the W̱SÁNEĆ Lands Trust Society and the Reconciliation Contribution Fund for the Songhees Nation and the Esquimalt Nation.


I realize that no amount of money will undo the damage done by colonization or compensate for the suffering that Indigenous people have endured. As the harms of colonization are ongoing, I am committed to working to change this. I continue to learn about my ethical responsibilities and work to decolonizing my practice.
