ICBC Funded Counselling

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.  As of April 1, 2019, you are entitled to 12 pre-approved sessions within the first 12 weeks following an accident, regardless of whose fault it is.

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.
