About Me

**IF YOU ARE REACHING OUT THROUGH THIS WEBSITE, PLEASE CHECK YOUR SPAM FOLDER TO ENSURE MY REPLAY IS HAS NOT ENDED UP THERE** ***PLEASE NOTE THAT I ONLY PROVIDE VIRTUAL SERVICES*** I provide therapeutic services to adults and adolescence and clinical consultations to other therapists. I assist clients in working through concerns such as posttraumatic related issues, childhood traumatic experiences/complex trauma, depression, anxiety, bi-polar disorder, and others. My approach to therapy is integrative and aimed to meet the unique needs of each individual. I have extensive and advanced training in EMDR and continue to pursue professional excellence through continuous education and consultations. In addition to EMDR, I am also trained in Observed and Experiential Integration (OEI) and Cognitive Behavioural therapy (CBT). My office is located in the heart of Downtown Vancouver. I offer counselling services Monday through Thursday. It has brought great deal of meaning to my life to work with people in the way that I do. I am honored to walk with others through both their pain and triumphs. I believe that being compassionately present and working collaborative with others has a great healing value and I emphasize building upon the unique strengths of individuals. Recognizing how difficult it may be to begin the therapeutic process, I strive to create a safe and attuned environment for those I work with and prioritize the relationship with them. It takes strength and courage to confront painful life experiences and I consider it a great privilege and honor to walk with clients as they pursue personal growth and healing. I am looking forward to being part of your journey!
