Counselling couples. 

Couples will go through tough situations. Seeing a counsellor allows for the couple to know how to handle these situations when they come up. Common struggles for couples include conflicts around finances, parenting and infidelity. When not handled correctly, these can cause gaps between partners who then become adversaries rather than teammates. 

We’re able to help couples learn to reconnect and truly hear each other. We use emotion focused couples therapy, gottmann and family systems therapy. We also use strategies drawn from other therapies and tailor our approach to each unique couple we work with.

Relationships require work if we want them to reach their potential. Are you ready to put the work in?

 

For families who need financial support, Crossroads Collective offers a sliding scale rate on our counselling services. Finances should never hinder a family from getting the help they need. 

Reach out to us today to discuss a payment arrangement that works for you. 

We are here to support you along your journey.

      I am a licensed Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) through the CCPA. I completed a Masters degree in Counselling Psychology from Trinity Western University. I have continued my education since graduating, and I am currently completing a certificate program in Child and Family Forensics. 

      Through my professional and personal experience, I’ve found that the BC family law system isn’t the best setting to resolve family issues related to children. I’m passionate about helping parents be the best they can be for their children outside of a courtroom.

      Services I provide include: 

      • Individual and couples counselling
      • Co-parent counselling
      • Divorce coaching 
      • Group counselling and classes for parents and anger management 

      I specialize in the areas of family conflict, parenting and high conflict separation and divorce.

      As a couple’s therapist, male clients have often expressed appreciation that my approach has honoured their needs, has given them an identifiable target with tangible goals, and has allowed them to have space to explore their most vulnerable pains and needs. My female clients have expressed appreciation that my approach has truly allowed their experience to be expressed and understood. They have felt heard, honoured, respected, and that my calm energy, humour, and genuineness allowed the most sensitive parts of themselves to be worked on and improved.

      During my sessions, it involves listening to the wisdom of the body. In doing so, we hear stories that our bodies have been trying to tell us. When we listen, we create new pathways in our brain, in our lives and in our souls. 

      My rabbinical training and my training in mindfulness meditation let me maintain a presence that is based on compassion, honesty, and ancient wisdom. My clinic tools include a fun combination of trauma recovery specialization, self-compassion, somatic (body) therapy, Internal Family System (IFS) and nervous system stabilization. I also offer Neurofeedback treatments.

      I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) through the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCCAC).

      I was inspired by a lot of great school counsellors to complete my Masters of Education in Counselling Psychology at Simon Fraser University in 2002. My career has led me into many different directions professionally but no matter which directions I have travelled, I continue to be touched by my work with children, youth and their families.

      I have my own personal experience with special needs parenting as one of four children was diagnosed with Autism at the age of 18 months. It was a very difficult time for our family, particularly for my husband and I but also our other 3 children. There were feelings of grief and loss, panic and worry. I have navigated the services and support here in Langley since our son’s diagnosis in 2011 and can provide direction and understanding if feeling overwhelmed. As a helping professional and mother of a special needs child, I feel passionate about supporting special needs parents/caregivers, their child and their siblings.

      For the past 14 years, I have been working with adoptive parents and children. My work has included preparing children for their adoption transition and providing post adoption support once in the adoptive home. It is important to give adoptive parents the tools to build and strengthen attachment with their child.

        In the space of counselling, therapists can exhibit the traits and behaviours that our clients are missing in their daily lives. It is through these genuine connections, and feelings of care and compassion that individuals can begin to feel worthy and cared for. That they’re capable of achieving their goals and improving their sense of well-being.

        • Assertiveness/boundaries
        • Support for queer and trans folks, children, youth and couples

        • Relationship and couples counselling
        • Eating disorders
        • Grief support
        • Life transitions

I am a certified teacher in both Ontario and British Columbia. I also have an extensive background in psychology from my undergraduate studies.

        My experience as a teacher and my own background makes me an ideal fit when working with youth and young adult issues.

In addition, I am very knowledgeable about navigating post-secondary school options and career planning that might seem overwhelming.

        Counsellor 

        Languages: English & Punjabi 

        We often forget that life is filled with ups and downs. Many experiences and relationships come with feelings of pain, anger, and sadness. These emotions and memories can be difficult to share with our family, friends, and close ones.

        I believe the “right” therapist provides a space for you to feel supported, understood and guides you with education towards a life of acceptance and growth.
