I completed a B.Ed. at the University of British Columbia, followed by an M.Ed. in counselling psychology at Simon Fraser University. I have over 10 years of counselling experience working with international students and other students from around the world at the secondary and college levels. I have particular interest and experience helping students with cultural transitions. Other areas of training and experience include conflict resolution and helping students develop leadership and helping skills that are validating to themselves and their peers. Helping students with personal, cultural, educational and career planning issues is very rewarding in my role as an international student counsellor.
