Therapeutic Approach:

You have the right to choose the therapist and the approach to therapy that will suit your needs.  The therapeutic relationship is always entirely voluntary. I work from a feminist systems theory/harm-reduction model that incorporates all aspects of your emotional health, your relationships, your physical health, your extended communities, and even the personal impact of institutional and political systems.

An important aspect of your therapeutic process is the relationship that you and I will form and I am always open to answer questions about my experience, my education, and my practice methods.

Education & Experience:

I have a B.A. with Honours in Psychology from the University of Winnipeg, a Master’s in Clinical Social Work from the University of Manitoba, and a Master’s in Education from the University of British Columbia.  I am registered with the BC College of Social Workers http://www.bccollegeof socialworkers.  I have also completed extensive postgraduate training in, and am experienced working with, people who have experienced trauma, addictions, chronic illness, issues related to child welfare, and gender and sexuality diversity. Further, I have completed training in Solution Focussed Counselling and I have more than twenty years of experience as a counsellor and social worker.
