Clinic Director, Director of Student Success

As one of the team, I am an Associate Program Director for the Master of Counselling Program in Victoria, BC., I help provide support to the delivery of the MC program on Vancouver Island, with oversight for the VicCityU Teaching Clinic, and Student Success in supporting students to be successful in their learning journey.

My teaching philosophy is of lifelong learning and praxis – theory in practice, with a focus on collaborative models of education. Creating a learning space for students invites dialogue, the realm of ideas and knowledge and (lots of!) experiential practice. I believe the desire for learning, healing and growing is part of all of us. Our profession of counselling is a deeply ethical and professional undertaking and I welcome our students to this learning community.
