My father struggled with alcoholism and I promised myself I would never follow his path. But I'd learned as a young teen and adult that substances offered an immediate escape from emotional pain and bad memories, and I did follow his path. In my early 30's I started counselling to find a way to heal from past abuse and trauma, learn healthier ways of managing my emotions, build self-esteem and enter into truly loving relationships. In recent years I expanded to work with couples. It is my pleasure today to walk with individuals and couples as they begin their own healing journeys toward happiness and fulfillment.

Conflicts. Heartache. Angst. Chronic worry. Fear. Prolonged Sadness. Anger. You probably tried to deal with your struggles on your own, but you are not meant to suffer alone. Most of us reach out for help to family and friends. But sometimes you need more. You need someone who knows how to help you through your difficulties. You need someone who will hear, understand and help you find your way out of darkness. You need someone who can help you develop the courage to say no to toxic choices and yes to life-affirming decisions.

I provide counselling, psychotherapy and supervision services. My practice is guided by extensive experience working with people coming from various socioeconomic backgrounds as well as many years of serving the most vulnerable communities in Vancouver’s DTES. While my approach is integrative of modern theories and techniques, it heavily relies on Psychodynamic theories and practice. Psychodynamic Psychotherapy is a highly individualized treatment whose goal is not only to alleviate the most obvious symptom. It relies on the fact that our personalities are uniquely shaped by several developmental stages.

Your symptoms are purpose-driven - and by leaning into your your mind, body and soul, relational and work challenges, you can live into a deeper, more genuine life. By leaning into life's symptoms with fierce gentleness - whether that be anxiety, depression, cancer, angst, relationship issues, bankruptcy, etc - you will come to understand and awaken the life you are meant to be living. Because what comes to us belongs to us, we need to befriend these resistances in our lives. Then, quite naturally, the joy and aliveness of our true nature surfaces, our relationships begin to organically thrive and our meaningful work is accessed

Dissociative Disorders (DID) Counsellors

How does therapy for dissociative disorders work?

Dissociation may be triggered by stress or other upsetting circumstances, and therapy can address the traumatic events at the core of an individual’s dissociation. Understanding why a person may dissociate can help the therapist and the individual come up with alternative methods of coping. A person with a dissociative disorder may get stuck on negative thinking, for example, and treatment like cognitive behavioral therapy is a gold standard for breaking such thinking. And dialectical behavior therapy, for example, can help a person manage their anguish through better emotion regulation.

Which therapies are best for dissociative disorders?

Specific approaches used by professionals include cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavior, psychodynamic, schema therapies, among others. Cognitive behavioral and dialectical behavior therapies are two widely used therapies that can help individuals with painful memories and past traumas. These therapies work to integrate an individual's different identities into one person.

Are there specific medications for dissociation?

There are no specific medications prescribed for dissociative disorders. However, psychosis, depression, anxiety, and/or panic often co-occur in dissociative disorders. A psychiatrist may prescribe medications for any accompanying symptom—which may include antipsychotics like aripiprazole, antidepressants like selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or anti-anxiety drugs like benzodiazepines.

How often and how long are therapy sessions?

Like any type of therapy, sessions depend on the individual. Patients may see improvement within 15 to 20 sessions, at an average of 50 minutes per session, others may opt for 20 to 30 sessions over, perhaps, a six-month period. There are still other patients, especially those who have co-occurring conditions like depression and anxiety, who may need to continue sessions for up to 12 to 18 months.
