My Approach Clinical & Relationship Therapy
As a Registered Marriage & Family Therapist I want to support families, couples, and individuals in my South Surrey community. I am passionate about helping people to more positively perceive themselves, their lives, and their relationships. In particular, I provide tools in dealing with communication conflict management, and self-regulation.

I am a Certified Imago Advanced Clinician, so I mainly use Imago Relationship Therapy, which focuses on how people show up in relationship. I also draw from Sensorimotor Psychotherapy which believes in the mind-body connection, and helps people in their ability to track the body’s entire experience moment to moment while staying regulated. My approach to therapy focuses on strengthening self-awareness, one’s sense of control, and connection in relationships. I believe that everyone knows what they need, so I guide people to listen to themselves and come up with their own solutions. Therapy is a place for couples and individuals to practice their desired outcomes, so people feel confident to use their newly learned ways of being in the world.
