Hello and welcome :) I hope I can help you. Maybe you’re here because you have been struggling making sense of life. Maybe you’re feeling overwhelmed by what you are having to cope with and it feels like you and your life are falling apart. Are you depressed and want to be understood and to move forward into a life of joy and fullness? I know what that feels like. I know darkness and anxiety to the point of feeling completely trapped. Most importantly I also know the way out.

If you’re here, then you’ve probably run into a very difficult time in life, and you’re looking for ways to get through it. I like to work with metaphors, and a helpful metaphor is the idea of life as a journey, with lots of good terrain, but also lots of tough terrain. The tough terrain can represent many different struggles: relationship difficulties, stress, depression , anxiety, family challenges, loss… you name it. And in this life-as-a-journey idea, a counsellor can be thought of as a local guide who is familiar with the tough terrain, and has experience helping people navigate the most difficult parts of their journey.

I specialize in working with adolescents and adults with depression , anxiety and low quality of life.
Do you feel STUCK? When we feel stuck we start to question our life’s purpose and often start to doubt past and future decisions. Feeling stuck can often lead to confusion, hopelessness, fear, paralysis and lack of motivation. These experiences can generally cause anxiety, panic, depression and generally a low quality of life. Although these feelings can be incredibly painful and may lead you to feel helpless, it’s important to remind yourself that with the right support, you can change your life.

I'm passionate about helping my clients overcome issues such as anxiety, depression , and overwhelm so they can live a more vibrant and fulfilling life. They come to me struggling with difficult emotions, and feeling stuck, unmotivated, and unsure how to move forward. I work with them to find the reasons behind these feelings, and then offer tools and practical strategies to help them develop a more positive mindset. It's non-negotiable that I provide a safe, non-judgmental environment for them to open up about whatever is on their minds as together we navigate the confusion and uncertainty that life can sometimes cause.

My areas of specialty and experience include trauma, intergenerational, collective, and cultural trauma, addictions, depression , anxiety, low confidence.
I will help you access your body based intuition so that you can find answers that are right for you and your life. The felt sense is a body knowing that we have that is just outside of verbal thought. Your inner wisdom holds the answer to what you need to feel good. Body centered approaches are helpful because while our minds are busy trying to figure things out, our body has a sense of what resonates. Art therapy is also a powerful way to use colour and shape and images to access parts of ourselves that words can't convey.

I work with intelligent high functioning people who are struggling with anxiety and/or depression behind successful outward appearances. I also help people dealing with the aftermath of trauma. My approach is relational, combining the best of brain science and clinical evidence to provide lasting results. Together we will explore adverse experiences and the resulting toxic stress that has had an impact on you. As you heal you begin to notice more peace in your thoughts, a return of energy and joy, and recognize your own self limiting patterns and beliefs.

If you are struggling with: Family stress, crisis, grief/loss in the family, anxiety/ depression , work overwhelm/stress/burnout, or parenting stress - you are not alone.
We come into this world “wired for connection”. As a baby our survival depends on feeling connected to others and as we grow it’s this CONNECTION that allows us not only to survive but also grow and flourish. Sadly, many of us from very early on, suffer from what’s known as “attachment trauma”: a break or disconnection from those we needed for survival that is left unhealed and instead activates our attachment defenses. The effects of this trauma are far reaching: you might be struggling with anxiety, depression , anger issues, relationship difficulties, issues in parenting, exhaustion/burn-out, feeling low, lifeless, or numb.

Clients often come to me when they decide that survival is no longer enough. Whether it's past trauma, depression , anxiety, disconnection from self, lack of purpose, or lack of hope (etc). As humans, we all carry rocks in our proverbial backpacks. I am awestruck by the human capacity to survive and endure. But sometimes the weight that holds us down becomes so familiar that it is almost comforting. If you are reading this, you have found the courage to ask the question, "What if I allow myself to believe that I deserve better?" I love nothing more than helping clients explore what that might look like, and how to get there.

Depression Counsellors
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression counsellors in North Vancouver. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
