For some, counseling is about transforming relationships and lives. For others, it's about addressing a specific problem and moving forward with more confidence and less anxiety.

I offer a complimentary consultation session for both long and short-term counselling where together we'll determine if I can help you address what's getting in the way of you having and enjoying the life you want to have.

Counselling

If you are:

  • Feeling anxious and/or depressed
  • Looking for clarity or direction
  • Needing to resolve events from the past
  • Wanting to improve communication skills
  • Feeling overwhelmed
  • Wanting to figure out the "why's" of your life
  • A long-term caregiver
  • Coping with a diagnosis
  • Grieving
  • Having relationship challenges

I can help.

I have over a decade of experience working with adults and couples in an empathetic, compassionate, and collaborative way. I know what works and how to get where you want to go. I'm excited to see what we can accomplish together.

Phone and Online Counseling also offered at this time.

Dementia Support

I also specialize in Dementia Support. I have experienced this disease both personally, as a caregiver, and professionally, as a Support and Education Coordinator at the Alzheimer Society of BC.

I use counselling as an effective tool to help family, friends, and the person with the condition come to terms with this traumatic and life-changing diagnosis.

If there’s been a diagnosis in your family, or you suspect there may be one coming, I’ll help you:

  • Understand what's happening
  • Plan ahead
  • Manage stress and conflict
  • Strategize to make life as normal as possible for all.

Please contact me to find out more about my Dementia Support services.

FAQs

What happens in the first session?

During our first meeting we’ll do a little paperwork, talk about confidentiality, and talk about what brings you to counselling. The goal is for me to let you know what you can expect going forward, explain the counselling process, answer your questions, and set you at ease. By the end of our time together we’ll know if we’re a “good fit” – meaning we each feel we can work together. We may also have a plan for our next session or we may want to spend a bit more time determining that.

What can I expect from counselling?

You can expect to:

• gain clarity about the life you want for yourself
• increase your awareness of the factors contributing to your problem
• reconnect with existing skills/knowledge to help navigate adversity
• strengthen your ability to set clear, achievable goals for yourself
• feel more at ease about problems or goals that weigh heavily on your mind
• increase confidence in your ability to make difficult but important decisions
• improve communication with others and yourself
• feel supported, heard, and understood

What are the fees for counselling?

  • Each 60 minute individual or couple session is $140.00.
  • Optional 90 minute sessions are available at a rate of $180.00.
