Welcome to The Change Agency

Reg. Clinical Counsellor | The Change Agency

A designation of BC Association of Clinical Counsellors

Serving clients from Burnaby, New Westminster, Coquitlam, Surrey and Vancouver, The Change Agency provides counselling and therapy services in Burnaby, BC for children, individuals, couples, and families.

I believe challenges in life can often be opportunities for positive changes.  Every person will struggle with difficulties at some time and it can be helpful to have a skilled counselling professional to talk to in a safe and confidential setting.  By coming to this website, you are demonstrating courage and a desire to make positive changes in your life.  Having worked successfully with hundreds of clients, I am hopeful that by working together we can identify your goals for change and generate the agency to take practical positive steps towards insight, change and transformation in your life!

There are many ways we can address issues that you may be newly dealing with or have been for some time.  For example I can use Adlerian therapeutic approaches that seek to understand the patterns of your life established in the past to gain insight as to the root causes for anxiety, depression and/or stress.  We can use a combination of individual and family systems counselling work to help re-establish positive communication and respect in your relationship(s).  We can do existential work to understand grief and eventually find meaning in the loss to move on.  I can support you in helping your child maximize their opportunities for learning and socio-emotional growth.  I can also do career counselling focused activities that can explore meaningful and fulfilling opportunities for success at school, work and future careers.  In every instance, my work will be personalized to reflect your goals for change.
