Our Counselling Team
Since early in adolescence, I loved to journey alongside people as they worked through hurts and challenges in life. I was also, for awhile, fascinated with the science of Engineering. Because I loved both science and the humanities, I first graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering, and worked within the field of oil and gas for 5 years as a project manager. I grew aware that my fascination with Engineering science had waned but my gift for journeying with people had not. So I completed a Masters in Counselling Psychology at Trinity Western University. Since then, I have strived to be present through meaningful and transformative experiences in counselling clients.
My specialization has grown through the years in unique therapies for dissociation, trauma and abuse, depression and anxiety and attachment struggles. These therapies include EMDR, OEI, CBT and some neurofeedback. I am most influenced by existentialism and Virginia Satir's model of transformational Family systems therapy.
