About My Business

I am a Registered Professional Counsellor and Master Practitioner in Clinical Counselling where I have met the standards approved by the Canadian Professional Counsellors Association (License #3452).


Based in Vernon,BC, in the beautiful Okanagan Valley, my specialty is developing healthy relationships and working with my clients to manage the inevitable conflict that occurs when there are two brains, often with two very different perspectives trying to work on the same goal.


What once attracted you to your partner is now the very thing that is getting in the way of the happiness you previously enjoyed.


Incorporating the highly acclaimed Gottman Method into my practice, this journey of rediscovery focuses on moving away from the negative patterns that are getting in the way of your love story through rebuilding friendship and developing positive behavioural interventions.


Using this method, I will help teach specific tools to deepen friendship and intimacy in your relationship. To help you productively manage ‘resolvable problems’ and dialogue about ’gridlocked’ (perpetual) issues.

We will work together to help you appreciate your relationship strengths and to gently navigate through its vulnerabilities.
