I was born and raised in the Lower Mainland but spent some time in Calgary, Alberta attending school and playing university hockey, which was a huge part of my identity growing up. Throughout my hockey “career” I recognized I had this underlying passion of helping people. This is where my journey of becoming a counsellor came into play. On my spare time, I enjoy spending it with family, friends and my fur child, Bentley!
A philosophy that I live by is that everyone has the ability and deserves to experience positive change and live their true, authentic, happy selves. However, I recognise this can be much easier said than done, so incorporating self-compassion and patience for yourself is beyond important and very much needed. As Ellen would say “Be kind to one another” and yourself!
