I have worked with children, adolescents, and young adults in Whistler and Pemberton for the past 10 years in various roles Рas a recreation program leader, a teacher-on-call, a youth worker, an outreach worker, and finally, as a counsellor. I was drawn to the counselling profession because it is non-directive РI never liked telling people, even kids and teens, what to do!  It is much more my style to sit and talk with someone in order to help them better understand themselves and their relationships to the world that we live in.

After completing my Master of Education in Counselling Psychology through the University of Victoria in 2009, I have worked as a counsellor with children, youth, adults, and families in both school and community settings. I love working with young people of all ages because seeing the world through their eyes both challenges me and offers me insight into different perspectives of the world

I live in Whistler with my furry friend Markus. He would like to be an indoor, couch-bound dog but, instead, is forced to endure endless bike rides, ski tours, hikes, and canoe trips. In addition to my outdoor adventures with my slow dog, I have a variety of interests including travel, technology, radio journalism, and social justice.
