Welcome, I'm Brandy.

I'm so glad you are here.

I'm a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors and I have a Master's degree in Counselling Psychology from Adler University.  

I work in this field because I believe that healing is always possible, and I have seen firsthand the power that counselling can have in facilitating growth and change. Working in a space that allows me to create deep connections with people, and guide them towards a greater relationship with themselves, is a passion of mine. It is an honor to be invited into people’s hearts and lives and to walk alongside them on their journey.

My Philosophy

I believe deeply in the power of relationships and that it is in relationship that healing ultimately occurs. Being seen is a fundamental need of every person, and I strive to create a space where people can feel safe enough to share their truth and feel accepted for exactly who they are.

I believe that there is meaning in your struggles and regardless of what you have been through and are experiencing, you are not broken. I am here to walk alongside you on your journey of healing, every step of the way. 

My Approach

My approach is client-centered, trauma informed, and deeply relational in nature. I primarily draw on Person-Centered, Emotion-Focused, and Narrative therapeutic modalities, as well as Internal Family Systems. I also incorporate

Cognitive and Behavioral approaches as necessary. However, all of my work is tailored to the individual and their specific preferences and needs. 

Who I Work With

I work with adults and teens (15+) who live in British Columbia, Canada. I offer in-person sessions at my office in North Vancouver as well as virtual sessions via Doxy. 

Occasionally I do work with children younger than 15, but this is on a case by case basis. If your child is under 15, but you are interested in having us work together, please reach out to me directly at

Areas of Practice and Specialization

I have experience supporting clients with a variety of challenges, and my passion is in helping people to better understand their struggles, feel empowered, and build a relationship with themselves based on acceptance and respect. 

My areas of practice include: anxiety, depression, self-harm, burnout, life transitions, issues of self-esteem/self-worth, eating disorders, body image challenges, and more. 

My specific areas of specialization are: social anxiety, eating disorders/disordered eating, and depression. 

If you have any questions about me or my approach, please don't hesitate to reach out. I would love to hear from you.
