I have a Masters of Arts in Counselling Psychology from City University of Seattle. I am a member of the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors, which means I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC). My private practice is conveniently located on Fort Street near downtown Victoria.
My Areas of Specialty:
- Life Transitions
- Anger Management
- Separation and Divorce
- Family Therapy
- Grief and Loss, Bereavement
- Immigration, adjusting to a new culture
- Cross-cultural/Multicultural issues
- Third Culture/Cross Cultural Kids
My training and expertise with cross-cultural counselling is rooted in my lived experience. Having been raised in four countries on three continents, I know deeply the kinds of obstacles and challenges that losing your sense of home and finding your way in a new culture can bring. I can also appreciate the advantages that can come from being raised in more than one cultural setting. I have trained and researched in the area of multicultural counselling, and have expertise in working with couples who have married outside their families’ culture, as well as individuals who identify as Third Culture Kids/Cross-Cultural Kids.
