Challenging situations can happen suddenly or be built up over time, leaving us caught off guard or uncertain of the way forward. If one thing is true in life, we all have times of unexpected, and often unwanted, change. So if there’s something happening in your life which has left you overwhelmed, upset, or just banging your head against the wall, I can help you get back on track and pointed in the right direction again.

Life will throw us curve balls but the good news is we have the choice in how to navigate through those times. And if change is needed, we can take steps to create a different outcome or move through a taxing situation. Whether you feel like the rug has been pulled out from under you because of a relationship change, you’re reeling from a job loss or strained conversation, or whatever it is that makes you lose sleep, I can help you get a handle on your situation and restore calm and control in your life again.

“Change Happens But You Can Steer It”

My Philosophy

I believe we have the ability to adapt to change without compromising who we are as people, which is so important. We can heal from loss and move forward, and do this from a position of strength, in our own way and in our own time. How we deal with relationship issues, crisis or conflict, in part determines who we will become and impacts our overall wellbeing.

Most of us need some support along the way to manage the change in our lives. I can help you with that.

I work attentively and with compassion when people find themselves in times of transition. I will assist you to make sense of your situation, create a comfortable place to understand your emotions, identify underlying barriers working against your success, and start you moving forward with a renewed perspective and plan.

“You Can Have Calm While You Navigate Through Change”

Work With Me

I offer short-term counselling to get you back on your feet with a sense of purpose and clarity. Typically, clients benefit from two to eight sessions, however, the amount of counselling can be tailored to meet your specific needs.

If you are experiencing challenges in any of the following areas, I can help you address them:

  • Relationship Strain
  • Grief and Loss
  • Workplace Stress or Conflict
  • Bullying
  • Job Loss or Career Change
  • Health Issues or New Diagnosis
  • Anxiety/Stress Management
  • Balancing Competing Demands
  • Exhaustion/Burnout
  • Sleep Problems
  • Anything creating turmoil for you

If something has happened to you out of the blue, or you’re fed up with some cycle in your life which keeps repeating itself, I can help you handle the change in your life.

Fee Schedule And Appointments

My counselling fee is $110.00 per 55-minute session and most extended healthcare plans provide full or partial coverage.

I offer Skype, Phone and In Person sessions, and have Saturday and some evening appointments available.

I can schedule an initial session right away or I’m happy to have a free, 10-minute phone consultation, so you can get a sense if we are a good fit for working together.

About Me

I have over twenty-five years of experience working as a Counsellor and Social Worker and I’m a registered Social Worker in the Province of British Columbia. I currently work in a health care setting and have a private practice. I have experience in providing short-term and long-term counselling and my expertise is in assisting people in times of change or transition. I practice from a Systems Theory Perspective and utilize Brief Intervention Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques in my work with clients.

On a personal note I have experienced a potentially life altering situation with my own health, and an intense bullying circumstance. Both of these times were extremely overwhelming and initially knocked me off my feet. I understand what it’s like to hit a rough patch and how draining it is emotionally. I also know what it takes to successfully move through those times and I can help you move through yours too.
