I am a registered Clinical Mental Health Counsellor and a member of the American Counselling Association as well as the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors. I began my career in Colorado working in crisis counselling as well as working with individuals, couples, and families in a private counselling practice.
My treatment philosophy is rooted in Existential psychology and Humanistic psychology. Viktor Frankl, an Austrian neuroscientist and psychiatrist who fathered a form of existential analysis called logotherapy shared, ”For the meaning of life differs from man to man, from day to day and from hour to hour. What matters, therefore, is not the meaning of life in general but rather the specific meaning of a person’s life at a given moment.” I work collaboratively with each client to develop a treatment plan that is unique to the goals they want to accomplish in counselling. Each person and their life experience are unique and therefore require individualized treatment modalities.
When I am not in the office I can be found enjoying the mountains with my husband and our four children, writing Urban Fantasy novels, advocating for our local youth and... napping.
