My passion and primary focus lie in the realm of trauma. I believe that every individual is unique, and one approach cannot be ideal. I encourage my clients to consider a curious perspective towards their thoughts, emotions, bodily sensations, and memories. I also incorporate tools to help my clients loosen the grip of unhelpful narratives, thought patterns and self-beliefs.
I am a Registered Clinical Counselor with BCACC. I did my master’s in counseling psychology in school and youth concentration from Adler University, Vancouver.
Mental health issues, especially traumatic experiences and major life stressors can significantly impact our daily lives, and make us feel disconnected from ourselves, our loved ones, and other important aspects of our lives. I believe that building such connections is the key to healing. Hence, my work focuses on helping my clients build healthier perceptions of themselves and strengthen their relationships.
With this, I attempt to use a holistic approach in counseling, bringing together emotion, thoughts, and the body. I use different modalities with my clients like CBT-Trauma Informed lens, DBT, Emotional Freedom tapping techniques, Brain Spotting, Mindfulness, Play Therapy, and ACT.

- Anger Management

- Grief and loss
