Personal Injury

Providing supportive counselling to begin the process of healing

If you have been physically injured or are suffering emotionally as a result of a Motor Vehicle Accident, you may be eligible for free counselling.  I am authorized to provide counselling through the ICBC Automobile Injury Recovery Services, specializing in the management of anxiety.  I also help individuals manage pain and depression using mindfulness-based strategies.  Prior to booking a counselling session, please speak to your ICBC rehabilitation coordinator or the adjuster working on your claim to confirm the extent of your coverage.
