I am a registered clinical counsellor living and working in Vancouver. I have been meeting with people in emotional and mental distress since 2001, in public mental health settings and in private practice.

I have always been curious about what goes on between people and what happens, or doesn’t happen, that makes relationships trusting and loving or dangerous and traumatic. What is motivating us that we might not be aware of, and why do we keep getting into the same kinds of difficulties?

In my work with people we mostly talk. My training and experience in somatic practices inform and enrich what I can offer. Support before movement is a saying from Body-Mind Centering that’s equally true in therapy. I’m here to support and encourage you to face what needs to be faced so that you can live with increased freedom and ease.

I graduated from Simon Fraser University in 1984 with a Bachelor of General Studies, and earned a Master’s degree in counselling psychology in 2004 from City University of Seattle (Vancouver).
