“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” ~ Albert Einstein


I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor. I provide counselling, consultation, and coaching to individuals, families and school staff. I educate, and support families/individuals who are experiencing challenges related to ADHD, anxiety, learning disabilities, and conduct/behaviour issues. I offer in-office and outreach services and am available for evening sessions. Through knowledge of developmental patterns, neurobiological presentation, temperament and family/community systems, I gain a comprehensive understanding of the factors that underlie each person’s thoughts, emotions and behaviour. Thus, I help parents and others to lend support in the development of the individual strengths, management of challenges and access of potential. This approach results in a “win/win” situation for the child/family. I began my career at Humber College in Toronto. I earned a BA in Child and Youth Care Counselling from the University of the Fraser Valley in BC and a Masters Degree in Counselling Psychology from Simon Fraser University. I am registered with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC). I have been facilitating the ADHD Parent Program and have worked with youth and adults with Concurrent Disorders through programs at Vancouver Coastal Health.
