“Difficulties come when you don't pay attention to life's whisper. Life always whispers to you first, but if you ignore the whisper, sooner or later you'll get a scream”  Oprah Winfrey

It is my honour to serve our membership of high quality counsellors across Canada. My training and experience as a CPA, business owner, counsellor and business coach readily tied together when I connected with other committed counsellors in 2012 to help create ACCT. It was our combined belief in fairness, public safety, community support, and ethics that led to the formation of the first ‘Cooperative model’ professional association in Canada.

After serving as Board Director since the inception of ACCT and wearing many hats, my current position is Officer to the Board in the role of Treasurer.  I am most grateful to this dedicated team of volunteer Directors and am pleased to support ACCT in this financial role.  

Professionally, I practice with a small team of therapists at the boutique-style Vancouver clinic, Kitsilano Fairview Life Counselling.  My passion, along with business coaching, is working with individuals and couples to help them recognize their unique potential and purpose, while often supporting them with emotional and financial challenges and goals.
