Therapeutic Perspective

I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) and the Clinical Director/Founder of Moving Forward Therapy. I work with couples and individuals in-person and online at our Downtown Vancouver and Queensborough locations.When you come to see me, you will find that I'm an empathic, down to earth counsellor who creates a sense of ease, trust, and safety for you to feel comfortable exploring your experiences. I am able to maintain balance between compassionately validating your experience and encouraging growth. I believe that our past experiences impact how we presently feel about and engage with ourselves, relationships, and life perspective. Understanding how and why we experience certain difficulties is only the first part of the therapeutic process. The next part is knowing what to do to make meaningful changes to feel greater purpose, meaning, and connection in life.
