About SuzanneI believe in strong and compassionate families, schools and communities that surround and support children and youth allowing them to thrive and become kind, caring and resilient people.
I hold a Masters of Education in Counselling Psychology from the University of Victoria and am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (RCC# 2141). I have been supporting children, youth and families in the lower mainland for over 25 years.
At the beginning of my career, I spent over ten years working in the recreation field with children and youth. In 2000, I decided to go back to school and build my clinical counselling skills. After earning my Masters in Counselling Psychology in 2003, I worked as a clinical counsellor with children, youth and families in a variety of community organizations, including not-for-profits and the RCMP. In addition to my private practice, I work with a lower mainland school district helping to ensure schools are safe and welcoming places for children, youth and families; I am also Associate Faculty at City University of Seattle and facilitate workshops for The Dalai Lama Center for Peace and Education.
