Counsellor Directory

This innovative membership service serves to promote business information about your counselling practice, specialized services and skills as well as the ability to upload a profile picture and business logo. With futurist trends heading towards a generation that seeks information online as well as a specific set of skills, knowledge and experience, the CPCA believes this directory will provide a competitive edge for marketing our member's counselling services across Canada to the public, insurance providers, EAP contractors and government for verification of your legitimacy. All members who are in "good standing" will be approved to list their contact information in the directory on an annual basis. It allows our members to login to their directory listing once it has been approved and make any changes to their contact information.

I'm a down-to-earth, client-centered counsellor that can bring new hope to you and new life to your relationships. If you're struggling with your marriage or relationship, thinking about separation or divorce, facing family problems or parenting challenges, or just needing some individual support, I'm here and ready to listen with warmth, kindness and compassion, without any judgement or criticism. Our lives are filled with challenges...let's find new ways to change them into opportunities and put some peace and joy back into your daily living.
I have extensive training in Emotionally Focused Therapy, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and Gottman Method Couples Therapy and have had great results working with couples, families and individuals. I also offer couples counselling intensives for highly distressed couples. I have offices in Penticton and Summerland, offering you private and confidential services.
