I am a Registered Professional Counsellor (RPC), a Master Practitioner in Clinical Counselling (MPCC), and a Registered Member of the Canadian Professional Counsellors Association. I have resided in the Cowichan Valley since 1998, and have more than thirty years of experience collaborating with people, helping them find solutions to living their lives more meaningfully.

Over the years, I have worked in a variety of settings: corrections with delinquent teens, the inner-city, non-profit organizations, retail management, funeral services, group homes and day programs assisting individuals with developmental disabilities.

My education includes Bachelor of Science (BSC), Specialist Program in Psychology, University of Toronto, Master of Divinity (MDIV), University of Toronto, and a Diploma in Applied Psychology and Counselling (DAPC) from the Kelowna College of Professional Counselling in Kelowna, BC.

I consider myself fortunate to have had many life experiences, a quality education and training, and opportunities to pursue a career in counselling.

My main areas of specialty are Individual Counselling, Relationship Counselling, Anxiety and Depression, Grief and Loss, Addictions, Life Transitions, as well as, Spiritual Counselling.

I look forward to the opportunity to get to know you and to help you move forward with your life.
