I am consistently optimistic about the unique potential of everyone I meet with. This informs every aspect of my counselling approach. I look forward to hearing from you!

I founded Willow Tree Counselling after over a decade of work in public practice. At my downtown Vancouver counselling and psychotherapy office, I strive to cultivate a therapy space that is safe for all genders, races, cultures, bodies, sexual orientations, family constellations and relationships.

I am told that because of my open nature and kind, gentle way with people, clients trust that I can help without judgment. Listening to my clients’ personal stories is both an honour and a privilege; feeling heard and understood is often their first significant step towards change.

A welcoming, diverse & vibrant practice where people come as they are and I meet people where they’re at.

My counselling and psychotherapy practice is focused primarily on individual counselling. Counselling for couples and families is available on a selected basis.

Please note: due to the COVID-19 crisis, most counselling appointments continue to be held by phone and via my secure video platform. In-person sessions will start again, approximately one day a week beginning July 1st.

In-Person clients: Please read my COVID-19 Health and Safety Policy.

Depression including treatment-resistant depression, postpartum depression, seasonal affective disorder, and bipolar disorder

LGBTQ+ including coming out, transgender issues and asexuality
Addictions including drugs, prescription drugs, food, alcohol, gambling, and overspending
