About Me

I am a counsellor in Hope, British Columbia, Canada. I see clients in-person and virtually, but they need to be a resident of the Province that I reside within. I work with teens in school during the day, and at night I have my private practice. I am primarily a generalist, with some specialization with trauma related mental health concerns.
