I'm a registered clinical counsellor with over 20 years of professional experience. I have an online private practice in Vancouver, and I specialize in substance use and addictions, depression, anxiety, and loss. 

I offer one--to--one counselling for adults, as well as consultations for friends and family members whose loved ones are struggling with substance use or addiction.

Drawing on my own lived experience, my approach is collaborative, and my focus is helping individuals explore opportunities for connection, growth, and, ultimately, liberation from whatever is getting in the way.  

When we stop distancing ourselves from the pain in the world, our own or others’, we create the possibility of a new experience, one that often surprises because of how much joy, connection, or relief it yields.
