About Life Wise

We would love for you to get to know us 

Welcome to our community

We are team of experienced Registered Clinical Counsellors and recognized members of the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC). In addition to providing in person counselling at our Downtown Vancouver office, we offer secure online counselling via telephone or video therapy. As an inclusive practice, we welcome people from diverse cultures, backgrounds, and orientations. 


Counselling provides you with the opportunity to focus on your mental health and improve your wellbeing. Whether you have specific goals in mind or you are not sure where to begin, we are available and dedicated to meet your needs. Benefits of counselling include greater self-acceptance, better expression and management of emotions, improved interpersonal skills, and overcoming self-defeating habits/addictions.​​

"The finest of actions is better than the boldest of intentions." The first step to genuine lasting change is a phone call away.

Enhance your healing journey now.

About our founder 

"Counselling provides you with an opportunity discover your inherent strength and wisdom during times of stress. I hope to discuss solutions through a bio-psycho-social lens as I strongly believe in evidence based practices that integrate the mind-body connection. To ensure we are a good fit, I invite you to contact me for a free consultation."
