Deb is a narrative-trained therapist who believes in collaboration, curiosity, and respect. When dilemmas, problems, and obstacles grow big enough in our lives, they can come to dominate our lives, pulling us towards dark ideas and stories in which we can feel hopeless, lost, fearful, and disconnected. It is my aim as a therapist to work with clients to identify the challenges in their lives and explore how to move into more spaces of joy and preferred ways of living.
Part of my practice looks at the contexts in which our problems are created, which includes but is not limited to conversations around age, sexuality, gender, class, race, ethnicity, ability, and spirituality. I believe that our identities, lives, and dilemmas as well, are created within a broader relational, social, and cultural context.
I am a licensed Registered Clinical Counsellor in British Columbia, Canada. I believe in working relationally with clients, and hope to create an environment which is safe, open-minded, and non-judgmental. I have a particular focus on grief and loss, and working with parents, couples, adolescents, and families.
