I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with a Masters in Counselling Psychology. The focus of my practice tends to be working with clients who are dealing with anxiety, depression, pain management, and symptoms of overwhelm and uncertainty. I also work with couples and support them as they develop communication skills and navigate life changes such as divorce and co-parenting. I enjoy working with youth and helping them address school-related and home-related challenges. I offer sliding scale prices as a means to reduce barriers to accessing counselling.

Whether it be anxiety, pain , trauma, relationship challenges, or any other ailment of the mind or spirit, you will have a companion for it.
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.

My clients' concerns may involve anxiety, chronic pain , substance use, trauma/abuse, stress from school or work, and a sense of the lack of purpose and meaning in their lives.
I believe that all human beings have a remarkable ability to grow and change. Some clients come to me with a great deal of depression or hopelessness about their lives without the insight as to how they can be helped. I use a strengths-based approach as I listen to their stories to find the hope, possibilities, and resiliencies that coexist alongside suffering and insecurities. All therapies are evidenced-based and trauma informed.

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.

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.

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.
