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.

Sorry, I do not have immediate availability for accepting new clients and I am not currently adding to my waiting list. Previous clients, please be in touch.
