My Approach

I have a gentle, calm, and patient nature.  I create a queer-friendly, safe, and non-judgmental space for everyone who comes to my office.  You can just be you.  It can also be healing to share your story with someone who understands and listens to your story with compassion.

I select approaches based on you and your unique needs and strengths.  I will seek out those strengths, including ones which you may not have noticed, and I promote well-being, self-care, and self-compassion above all.  I have gathered many therapeutic tools over the length of my career, and I apply these very effectively in addition to the specific therapies in which I have trained.  

About Me

I am a Registered Social Worker with 11 years of experience.  I have a Master's Degree in Social Work from the University of the Fraser Valley and a Bachelor's Degree in Social Work from the University of British Columbia.  I absolutely love counselling and feel so privileged to do it.

I work 1:1 with adults, both virtually and in-person in Burnaby and Coquitlam.

Getting Help

Counselling is helpful for all people, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, profession, upbringing, ability, ethnic background, and faith.

Seeking counselling, therapy, or mental health support is brave and wise, and it shows strength, not weakness.  Reach out to help make things better.  Clients are often surprised about how well therapy can change their lives.

I was struggling in life and tried seeing different counsellors for help. Clara stood out as a truly gifted and talented counsellor who was able to help me move forward. She was easy to talk to, a great listener, helped me better understand myself and provided me with strategies to help me overcome my problems and live a more fulfilling life.
