I have been honored and privileged to provide mental health care services in the Greater Vancouver area for over 10 years, with people from all walks of life. I am passionate and dedicated to ending the stigma of mental illness, and committed to partnering with her clients in their quest for a more balanced life.

I hold dual registration as a Clinical Counsellor with the BCACC, and as a Social Worker with the BCCSW; and am also a member of the Association of Contextual Behavioural Science. I have my Master of Arts degree in Counselling Psychology, in addition to significant post graduate training in various therapeutic approaches including EMDR, ACT and DBT. I have also completed Lean Management Certification; and am currently pursuing a post-graduate diploma in Addiction Medicine.

In addition to my work with the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority, and my private practice, I am also the creator/founder and former Clinical Director / Managing Partner of the Summit Counselling Group; a private counselling clinic located in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia. There I was responsible for all aspects of the business - from business conception, planning, and development, to the day-to-day operations.

I currently have an online private practice for clients residing in B.C. or Ontario. You can view my etherapycanada.com profile at:
