I specialized in a Somatic and Early Developmental Shock Trauma therapy.
I'm a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC). Although life can seem busy and chaotic at times, our time together is an opportunity to slow down, become clear and find ways to resolve current concerns or issues from the past that interfere with living fully in the present. Your health, wellness and goals come first. I work with individuals struggling with a wide range of concerns, such as anxiety, depression, self-esteem, trauma injuries, developmental stages, disordered eating, relationship issues, as well as life transitions and grief.

As an Indigenous/mixed person, my life’s paths and experiences encouraged the sharing of my gifts so that I may be in service to others. I’m deeply connected to and inspired by ritual, ceremony, community, and the personal journey of walking the complex edges of life. With a trauma informed lens, I weaving relational somatic psychotherapy and grief work to be a gentle guide and advocate, to hold space and offer support for life's current and unexpected challenges.

My particular interests include, but are not limited to: reproductive mental health, parenting, intergenerational trauma , couples counselling (monogamous and polyamorous), and healing PTSD in individuals and families.
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.

A large part of my practice is EMDR – Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing – a quick and long lasting treatment for trauma , anxiety, depression, and much more.
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.

I specialize in Relational Somatic Therapy which is designed to gently, respectfully, & compassionately support the renegotiation of trauma and one’s ability to access the body’s wisdom & innate ability to rebalance & regulate.
Life can be challenging, stretching us beyond what we believe we are capable of sustaining. We can often feel stuck, not knowing how to break free from unhelpful patterns, or not able to cope with the intensity of the feelings we are experiencing. The good news is that you don’t have to do it alone. I offer a safe place to land and support for whatever you are going through. Together, through reflection and exploration, we can bring compassionate awareness and a deepening understanding to your experience and work together to create the changes you are seeking.

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.

Many of us are somewhere along the continuum of developmental trauma .
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.

My experience working in Social Work and Counselling has afforded me the opportunity to work with diverse and vulnerable clients in clinical settings, as part of an interdisciplinary team, and individually in grassroots environments. This combination of experience has shaped the counsellor I am, which is one that works from a trauma -informed person-centered approach and incorporates a mixture of mainstream counselling approaches such as trauma treatment, cognitive-behavioural therapy, solution- focused therapy, strengths-based counselling, mindfulness, and somatic psychotherapy).

Trauma and PTSD Counsellors
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychological reaction that occurs after an extremely stressful event, such as physical violence or military combat. Those suffering from PTSD have recurring memories of the stressful event and are anxious or scared even in the absence of danger. Flashbacks and nightmares are common symptoms as well.
