I am excited to meet you. I truly enjoying helping people feel better about themselves so they can live meaningful lives.
In my own life, I've seen the benefit of a multi-dimensional approach to healing. To have a healthy mind, we have to have a healthy body. This is especially important for women to understand because changes in our hormones, diet, lifestyle and relationships can help or hurt our mental health.
I go to counselling once a month as a way to keep my head clear. The more I learn about myself from both success and failure, the better I am as a therapist. I'm fairly certain that I have been through many of the same struggles that you have in your life.
In 2019, I have taken workshops with WorksafeBC (Occupational Trauma), Janine Fischer (Working with Fragmented Selves) and the BCPFFA (Level 2 Working with First Responders).
I have a Masters of Arts, Counselling Psychology degree, hich I completed online, from Yorkville University in Frederiction, New Brunswick as well as a Bachelor of Arts degree from Simon Fraser University.
My husband and I have lived in Ladner for the past seven years. My husband is retired from the IT management world, and loves to travel. I enjoy yoga, gardening, walking, cycling and crossword puzzles. We have a blended family with 4 children and 7 grandchildren between us.
