Life can be unsettling, overwhelming, even traumatic at times. Self-esteem can waiver, relationships can be difficult, we can become anxious, depressed, experience guilt, loss and sadness. All are normal parts of the human experience, yet not always easy to navigate on our own. My belief is that through a dialogical relationship with a compassionate other, while listening to the information our body provides, healing is very possible. I aim to create an environment which assists couples in acquiring skills to strengthen communication and connection. Individual uniqueness is celebrated as are an understanding of individual needs.

Now accepting clients across British Columbia. Helping people feel empowered through emotional healing is my passion. As a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC), I work with individuals and with couples/relationships. My intention is to help you— or you and your partner— find the inner strength and resilience that is already there. I know what it’s like to encounter obstacles, to feel stuck-at times very stuck— and to work through it, with all the frustrations and surprises that might bring. With intention, wisely chosen resources, and support, what you dream is possible to bring about.

Are things feeling like a lot right now? It's tough out there. Whether you're struggling in your relationships, wondering what the heck a boundary is and how to create them, needing ways to cope with a really intense world, or wanting to trace a frustrating pattern and find new ways forward, you deserve support. I work with folks who are feeling stuck or overwhelmed to build resilience and choice. Using a somatic, attachment-based approach, I aim to create a space of care and acceptance for folks to name and feel feelings, map out unhelpful patterns, and practice new ways of navigating life’s challenges.

I help clients move through life's difficulties . When relationships change, when we feel stuck in habits that take us away from what we really want. When we recognize the need to make peace with those aspects of the past that are holding us back from the life we wish to live . As a body-centred therapist working with trauma, I help you access the wisdom of your body, and learn how to reclaim a deeper calm, self regulated state, where you can update the limiting beliefs and emotional reactivity that often prevents the full expression of your potential. Our thoughts and thinking rarely give us a clear picture of the world

Welcome to the journey. You might be struggling with anxiety, depression, loss of direction, grief, relationship issues or other transitions in life that inspired your search for support. Maybe you are feeling stuck in patterns either in relationship to others or in your life as a whole, and are just plain tired of feeling lost or in pain. Having greater understanding and perspective in your life and relationships, and feeling a sense of empowerment and at home within yourself is often the shift that therapy brings. Gaining the ability to view yourself and others with compassion, acceptance and a sense of peace is possible.

There are times in our lives when we just need someone there. Someone who we know gets us and cares as much as we do. At times it's when it's most difficult to reach out, we feel vulnerable and perhaps alone. We can be dealing with old resurfacing trauma, or behaviors we don't understand why they are happening. Perhaps we have anxiety, depression or grief has come knocked at our door. Relationships are challenging us. We want to be met and have a sense of being seen for who and what we are. We long to be understood or simply to find new ways of being and wonder how to get there. We long for change and the knowing that we are OK.

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 Nelson?
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 Nelson 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.
