If you are reading these lines chances are that you, or someone close to you, have been experiencing some distress. Whether these are feelings of sadness or hopelessness, anxiety, loss and grief or relationship difficulties, you are looking for information and, possibly, professional help.
Let me assure you that I appreciate how hard it must be to look for help and to make the decision to contact a therapist you don’t really know. It may also be scary to actually do something about your situation because that would mean taking a close and hard look at yourself, your patterns, your relationships and, possibly, your barriers to change. It takes courage and determination to change but I am sure you have it in you and, I can help you access it.
I have taught various courses in Psychology at the University of British Columbia and have provided clinical supervision to Psychology students at both the Masters and Doctoral levels at UBC.
I have worked with clients since 1995 and have had my expertise recognized in the areas of postpartum depression, depression during pregnancy and couples therapy.
I have helped numerous Vancouver couples achieve their relationship goals, whether they were in the transition to parenthood or at any other point in their lives when they were looking to make their relationship a more harmonious, close and satisfying one.
I have helped many clients who struggled with the debilitating effects of depression, anxiety and OCD. I have also worked with couples and individuals as they were struggling with pregnancy loss, infertility and other types of grief.
I am humbled and honored to be able to help clients in their most vulnerable times and I am at awe at the strength and resourcefulness people demonstrate as they emerge back into good health and happiness.
As a registered psychologist, my mission is to empower my clients to manage their life challenges effectively and achieve a sense of well-being and satisfaction by providing the highest quality of therapy in the areas of couples relationships, life transitions (e.g., becoming parents, divorce and separation), parenting issues, pregnancy and postpartum depression, infertility and pregnancy loss, anxiety and/or panic, obsessive-compulsive disorder, stress management, loss and grief.
