I strive to be a kind, compassionate, and thoughtful listener; am curious about and interested in people; and possess a genuine desire to help others.
Bilingual in French and English, I have a master’s degree in counselling psychology from Adler University and am in the process of completing a graduate diploma in existential counselling from Austrian-based GLE International—Society for Logotherapy and Existential Analysis. Though I currently live in Canada, I have previously worked and studied in South Africa (Cape Town) and the United Kingdom (London). Before deciding to become a counsellor, I worked in corporate environments in the legal and human rights fields.
For the last three years, I have volunteered with the Vancouver Crisis Centre, and now work there as a staff member in a supervisory role. I also worked with Vancouver Coastal Health Child and Youth Mental Health as part of a practicum placement. In my counselling practice I have worked with individuals, couples, and groups struggling with addiction, identity, anxiety, and depression. Clients include professionals, musicians, young people, and survivors of abuse and trauma.
Outside of counselling, I am a keen participant in several sports, including water polo, curling, cross-country skiing, running, cycling, and hiking. I serve as a member of the board of directors of the Society of Existential Analysis of Canada, and continue to be involved in a project around community mental health resources that started during one of my degree practicum placements.
