I have a Master’s degree in Clinical Counselling and Marriage &
Family Therapy from Trinity Western University and am currently working
on my Doctorate in Psychology from California Southern University. I
started my Langley counselling practice in 2009, while also working as the Clinical Director at Cares Counselling in Abbotsford, where I provided supervision and oversight to a team of therapists and interns from 2008 – 2015. In 2015, I resigned my position at Cares so I could work full time at my Langley office. In 2018, I expanded my practice to include another experienced counsellor, Roshni. She is a highly respected colleague with additional areas of expertise to offer.
I’ve been married for over 21 years and have two children, my youngest just turned 16 and my oldest turned 19 and finished her first year of university. So lots of changes to navigate! Apart from work, I enjoy spending time with friends and family. Growing up in the small town of Vanderhoof in Northern BC, I’m especially drawn to the outdoors and enjoy walking and hiking, downhill skiing, camping, and riding my motorcycle. I also enjoy reading historical fiction or relaxing in front of the TV.
