I have a Master of Arts degree in Counselling Psychology from Adler University in Vancouver, BC and am currently a member in good standing of the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors as well as the American Association of Suicidology.
I have worked with adults, families, couples, children, and youth in various settings over many years. In addition to my practice, I currently work in a non-profit community agency providing suicide prevention and intervention services to children and youth at moderate to high suicide risk. I am also a sessional instructor for graduate level counselling students, focusing on counselling skills, ethics, and career counselling.
I worked for over five years at a large university providing career counselling to undergraduate and graduate level students, as well as recent graduates, and completed my own graduate training working with post-secondary students providing counselling in a multi-disciplinary health clinic. I have provided counselling at universities, secondary and primary schools, non-profit agencies, and many other settings with many populations. I also have experience working in community homes for those suffering from severe mental illness, alternative school programs, crisis-lines, and group/foster homes for youth.
