About

Experience You Can Count On

I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor and a member of BC Association of Clinical Counsellors.  I completed a BA in Psychology in 1982 and my MA in Counselling Psychology in 2006 at Trinity Western University.  In keeping with my commitment to ongoing professional development, I have also completed many post-graduate courses and trainings.  I have many years of experience in working with trauma, depression, anxiety and other mental health issues. I am the former Manager and Clinical Supervisor of the Trauma Counselling Program at Sources Women’s Place and have worked with men, women and adolescents in a local mental health center as well as a community agency.


I am grateful to live and work in the beautiful White Rock area serving clients in White Rock, Surrey, Delta, and Langley.  In my free time, I enjoy yoga, hiking, biking and spending time with my grandkids.  My life-long passion for healing and personal growth naturally led me into the counselling field. Like many of my clients, my life has not always been easy.  I've had my share of sorrow and major life changes and know the courage it takes to face fears, limiting beliefs and the sense of vulnerability that comes with feeling  stuck and/or in pain. One of my favourite authors, Mark Nepo wisely said, "Whatever is in the way..... is the way."  I love this quote, as it reminds me that whatever challenge I am facing, therein lies the possibility of growing into the person I want to be. Often, it's through the difficult  times that resiliency grows, character is developed and our best self yet, emerges.  Personal transformation and healthy relationships are possible......a journey well worth taking.


“You must be the change you want to see in the world."

Ghandi


"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the the depths.  These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern.  Beautiful people do not just happen."
