I have a Masters in Social Work from UBC and advanced clinical training in birth trauma, perinatal / postpartum mental health and mental health/substance use.
Are you feeling overwhelmed, exhausted and frustrated? Maybe even a little anger, rage and despair? Is parenting harder than you ever imagined? Does it feel like no one really prepares us for this? You are not alone. Let's unpack the hard stuff that is weighing you down. My practice focuses on women's mental health, particularly perinatal anxiety and depression. My interest in this work comes from my own personal experience with birth trauma and postpartum anxiety. I know how challenging parenting can be at every age and stage! Let's work together to help support you in your most important job!

As an Expressive Arts Therapist I work alongside individuals and families looking for support and non-judgmental care. Expressive Arts Therapy is a resource oriented method and utilizes the arts in simple ways to gain perspective on the strengths already within us. All sessions are unique to the needs and desires of the client and do not require any previous arts experience. I am incredibly passionate about working with and supporting children, birthing/ postpartum people and those who have experienced pregnancy loss.

The human experience can be exhausting and confusing at times… “Can I just get a break!?” If you are reading this, it’s likely you may have reached a point of exhaustion and the logical brain keeps telling you “but, I don’t know why/how…” I’ve been there. The body holds inner stories that are trying to be told, but when the mind doesn’t know how to process them, they show up as anxiety, depression, and/or behaviors that directly impact our connection to ourselves and others.

If you are on this page, that means there is a part of you that is looking to healing and living life more fully. Depression, anxiety, trauma and other emotional struggles take away from the joys of everyday life. It might be hard to find the motivation to get out of bed in the mornings. Where you used to enjoy activities with loved ones, you might feel numb , disconnected or overwhelmed with anxiety. You may even find yourself stuck in unhealthy relationships or engaging in behaviors that just don’t feel right. Sometimes, emotions such as anger or anxiety can go from 0 to 100 in a matter of seconds and you may feel "stuck".

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 Downtown, Vancouver?
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 Downtown, Vancouver 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.
