I have a Masters of Arts in Counselling Psychology from City University of Seattle, and additional training in trauma work and somatic therapy. I am a member of the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors, which means I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC).
It is important to me to remain aware and educated on issues related to power, privilege and social justice. Clients of all races, cultures, genders and orientations are welcomed and supported in my practice.
My office is conveniently located on Fort Street near downtown Victoria, with ample parking. Unfortunately, the heritage building housing my office is not wheelchair accessible, but I offer online counselling as well.
At this time, my practice has moved online. I have extensive experience with mitigating the challenges inherent to online/virtual counselling and therapy and can provide you with effective, confidential support from the comfort of your home.
Issues I may be able to help you with include:
- Life Transitions
- Anger Management
- Self harm
- Separation and Divorce
- LBGTQIA Support
- Trans Youth, Individual and Family support
- 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. As a multiracial individual, 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.
