I support adults who are dealing with issues related to self-care, self worth, unresolved emotional wounds, body acceptance or weight concerns, chronic illness/pain, disability, anxiety, depression, relationship/family conflict, and grief/loss. The people who seek out my services are looking for a safe place where they will be deeply heard and understood, and where they will find acceptance and compassion. Many of my clients have not experienced positive regard as a normal part of their lives, and had childhoods that were not sufficiently nurturing. I know that healing begins when a person is fully heard, validated, and affirmed.

We are each on a journey in search of safety, meaning, and fulfillment. Along the way we are constantly exposed to images and ideals of how we are supposed to look, how we are supposed to feel, and how we are supposed to behave. We start to doubt our uniqueness or our worth. I aim to create safe spaces to talk about things that might seem too personal, taboo, shameful, trivial, or embarrassing to share with others in your life. Together we can examine limiting beliefs about yourself, old stories of who you are and how you "should" be in the world, so you can start to live by choice, not by chance.

As a religious recovery consultant and Registered Professional Counsellor with a fundamentalist background, I help navigate the transition from religious to post-religious life. I understand the multiple losses that accompany religious deconversion: Community, purpose, identity, world view, employment (if clergy or missionary), and more. My clients come from a variety of authoritarian backgrounds including religious, political, and wellness. Together, we explore the damage caused by indoctrination; developing a healthy & reality based worldview; creating a new identity; and how to build a healthy & supportive secular community.

Sometimes in life we are at a place where we are looking to understand more of ourselves and what is going on in our lives - from the relationships we find ourselves in, to the cycles that we might get stuck in. From anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, life stress, big transitions; my job is to offer a space for you to feel safe and heard so the unpacking and understanding can begin. It is only when we can uncover and understand the root of the problem that profound coping and healing can really begin. If you are looking to understand yourself on a deeper level and take control of the things that are hurting you, I can help.

Welcome! I'm grateful that your search has led you here. Many of us experience overwhelming emotions that we can’t make sense of, struggle with unhealthy outlets for emotional safety, have insecurities in our relationships when our needs don’t get met, and find it safer at times to hide our real selves from others. Together, we'll collaborate to expand your self-awareness, take intentional action towards your goals, and gently look inward to deeply nurture the parts of you that need healing. My approach is integrative and holistic, attending to your psychological, emotional, physical, and spiritual wellbeing.

We all desire to discover and experience the best parts of who we are. But sometimes we need help exploring those parts of ourselves where we experience struggle or pain. Whether you are experiencing the negative impacts of trauma, engaging in unhealthy behaviours, or seeking new tools to be the best version of yourself, therapy can make a difference. I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with 20 years experience. My approach is informed by the mind-body connection, attachment theory, and the recent contributions of neuroscience. My goal is to provide the tools and support you need to rediscover the best parts of who you truly are.

Do you find yourself circling around the same issues, or struggling to overcome one particular problem, despite a lot of effort to change? I get how exhausting and sometimes hopeless that place can feel. I work with my clients to drill to the core of what is perpetuating current issues, so that together we create not just coping, but healing. By treating problems at this root level, clients often report having a sense of freedom beyond what they've experienced before. I utilize a combination of therapeutic techniques, however my specialization is in Accelerate Resolution Therapy (ART).

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Kelowna?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Kelowna specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
