Registered Psychologist (#5146)
Registered Canadian Art Therapist
I work with individual adults. Although I've worked with children for about a decade now, I'm currently focusing on supporting parents, & no longer taking new referrals for children.
I know it can be difficult to make an appointment and walk through the doors of a therapist's office. Please feel free to contact me or book a free phone consultation if you have any questions about working with me.

Sensorimotor (Somatic) Psychotherapy
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Supporting Non-Biological Parents

I have been in private practice since early 2019.
I also do some teaching at the Vancouver Art Therapy Institute.
Previously, I've worked as a therapist in the paediatric palliative care department of a children's hospital, a community counselling agency, schools, and drug and alcohol residential treatment centres.

I am an adoptive parent, a partner, and also a dog-mom.
I enjoy making music, sound art, and arts & crafts out of things I find lying around.
I LOVE chips, campfires, and I'm currently learning to play the fiddle.
