WHO I WORK WITH
I welcome all clients of all abilities, all sexual orientations and gender expressions. I am committed to building a community of respect, inclusion and mutuality that celebrates diversity of faith, bodies, sexuality, culture and family form.
I have worked with adults with cognitive and developmental challenges and neurodiversity, and welcome any inquiries about how I might meet your special circumstances.
IN PERSON OR REMOTE
I offer in person sessions in my office in Sechelt, BC Wednesday through Friday, with some Saturday appointments available as well. I also offer phone and video counselling, Monday through Friday.
In our sessions, I will listen to your story, and collaborate with you to create goals for your growth and healing.
Between sessions, using skills and exercises identified with me, you will continue to work (play, reflect, move, dream) to bring your goals into better focus.
I welcome all couples in any form of relationship. Our focus will be to explore your mutual hopes and goals for your relationship, and to develop skillful ways for you to talk with one another about your emotions, ideas and plans, with better empathy and reduced conflict.
The goal may be related to continuing and enriching the relationship or about ending the relationship respectfully. Each couple’s journey is unique, and we will co-create the outcome that best serves your wholeness.
I have specialized in working with groups throughout my career.
I design creative, dynamic and productive group experiences for organizations seeking better clarity around vision and mission, or working through conflict to create a more functional team.
I have a certificate in Mediation and Conflict Resolution.
I also design retreats for personal growth and inner clarity, for pre-exisitng groups, and for individuals to attend in a group setting.
Sessions are 50 minutes. Longer sessions can be arranged for a prorated fee structure.
I offer a free 20 minute initial consultation and a reduced price for your first session.
Individual Sessions: $120.00
Couples Sessions: $140.00
Group Consultations and Retreats: Determined in conversation with the organization
I strive to make my services accessible for everyone. Please contact me to discuss sliding scale options.
Currently, I am supervising a Master’s Student who is completing his practicum in my practice. If you would prefer to work with a male counsellor, I can refer you to him. This may get you an earlier appointment, and will be at a lower cost than my services.
As a member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association and The British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors, my services may be fully or partially covered through your health care insurance extended benefits package.
Contact your insurer to inquire.
Clients with Pacific Blue Cross, ManuLife, and SunLife have been successful getting reimbursement for services.
I also serve clients who have coverage for counselling through The First Nations Health Authority (in British Columbia).
