I am a registered clinical counsellor and hold a Master's degree in Community Psychology. I have been counselling since 1990 and provide individual therapy to adolescents and adults and clinical supervision to other therapists. I have significant experience in working with Indigenous youth and adults and hold advanced training in EMDR. I train other counsellors throughout Canada and internationally. I became a Reiki Master in 2002 and am available to provide all levels of reiki training and treatments to interested individuals.
I utilize a number of therapies, which I weave seamlessly in sessions. I work within a framework of anti-oppression and empowerment, and offer a courageous and compassionate presence. My work is Buddhist informed, and draws strongly on narrative therapy, ego-state therapy, EMDR, and various expressive modalities.
I am located in Vernon, BC and am working with individuals around the province. Anyone is welcome to participate in person, by telephone, or Skype. I can be reached by phone or text at 250-540-7304 or email email@example.com
