Why Work with Me as Your Therapist?
I’m a Registered Clinical Counsellor (#12205) in Vancouver, BC in private practice where I work with adults and couples. I am committed to providing a supportive, safe, non-judgmental, compassionate and collaborative space where I listen to your story and help you create the life you want. A counsellor with experience helping individuals deal with depression, anxiety, shame, self-esteem and guilt can provide you with the support that you need. Make permanent and lasting changes in your life so that you can have a more fulfilling present and rewarding future.
I’m caring, motivated and effective.
I show that I care, I clarify what your needs are, and check in with you during our sessions so that I’m clear on how our time is working for you.
I’m motivated because I know what it’s like to spend time in the client seat as a counselling client.
I also know that your time is money and that you want to see change in your life as soon a possible. I’m effective because we work together as a team, you are the expert of your story and I’m there to assist you in challenging and understanding the ways you look at your problems in your life. As my testimonials illustrate, I have helped many people make positive change happen in their lives.
Now it’s your turn. Contact me to begin your journey and move forward with your life.
Counselling can help with:
- High stress that has reached a point of crisis
- Anxiety that seems to take control of your life
- Chronic pelvic pain that causes far too much stress
- Lack of motivation for change
- Perfectionism that creates anxiety and causes you to procrastinate
- Lack of self-empathy; low self-esteem
- Grief due to relationship loss, death or dying
- Depression that won’t let up
- Relationship problems that wreak havoc in your life
Living in a world where you are constantly bombarded with images and messages about who we’re supposed to be and how you are suppose to behave can create feelings of stress, anxiety and depression.
Feeling like you will never measure up to what society wants you to be can make anyone feel hopeless about the future.
You try to fight these negative feelings but end up back where you started feeling defeated. The pattern repeats itself over and over.
When you are not happy and content your relationships suffer. You do not prosper at your job and you feel bad about yourself.
Perhaps you have a vague feeling that something is not right….that something is holding you back from being truly happy, but you cannot seem to put your finger on it.
If this sounds like you, you are not alone.

Your support and counselling was very precious and healing to me. Thanks for the important role you played in my journey.Sam
This is just some-thing small to thank-you for all the time you have spent with me in our therapy sessions. I really have appreciated every minute you let me pour out my thoughts to you. I really needed an ear and feel so much more confident and ok with myself than when I first came to you. You’ve helped show me that I am not the only one who has some of the thoughts I do and also helped me tame some of my self-doubt. Thank you for your ear and all the help you have given me.K.S
