I work with women and men and support adults both through a provincial mental health program and in my private practice.
Welcome! Therapy is a place to learn about yourself, your relationships, and how past experiences have impacted you. Are you constantly feeling worried and overwhelmed? Do you feel sad and overcome by negative thoughts? Do you feel disconnected from your partner? Are you grieving a loss? Do you struggle with anxiety and/or depression? I work with clients who are struggling with common life challenges and transitions and want to learn ways to cope, manage their stress, and feel better. My goal is to create a space where you can talk about how you are doing without feeling judged and feel empowered on your own journey of healing.

Clients come to me when they feel that something in their life needs to change, but can't quite see the path forward. Some clients aren't quite sure where to start, or even exactly where they want to go. Many feel overwhelmed, stuck, frustrated or exhausted by the experiences and cycles in their life that seem to repeat themselves despite desperately wanting them to change! Our work together could help you gain clarity about where you want to go, identify and remove obstacles (internal & external), provide you with practical new tools for navigating a complex world, seeing changes, and moving forward with joy and confidence!

Sometimes life feels very overwhelming and we can feel lost and disconnected, or even struggle with our self-worth. I work with couples and individuals who want to understand their behaviours and improve their communication and connection. You may struggle with your romantic relationships or friendships, or find yourself repeating the same patterns with different people in your life. Sometimes you feel anxious in your relationships, or don't feel connected at all. You may want to feel more at ease in your relationships with others and especially with yourself, experiencing less anxiety and feeling grounded when making decisions.

One of the greatest trials and rewards is to feel a sense of ease in your life and with who you are. If you’re here, it’s likely something is blocking you from this ease - trauma, anxiety, depression, or past relationships. While you may appear to have it all together, you know something is missing. Like many others, you might find it difficult to be vulnerable or lean on others, yet you face challenges in managing your emotions or experiences alone. Some days you may feel empty or numb, and at times worry, sadness or anger consume you for no apparent reason. You may feel alone and disconnected from others or who you once were.

The people who gravitate towards me as a counsellor want to explore their personal struggles to gain a new understanding of who they are. They hope to apply the learnings from what we are doing in sessions to their day to day life. Change happens when we do something different from what we have always done, and part of our work together is doing just that. We practice having hard conversations, exploring feelings and unmet needs. As well as exploring boundaries, our own discomfort in relationship and how to take care of yourself. Coming to counselling takes courage but the biggest part is translating that experience into the world.

Life can sometimes darken our hearts and make things feel difficult or even hopeless, as if there is no way out. You may battle with anxiety, depression, perfectionism or low self-worth while a strong inner critic berates you every step of the way. Perhaps you feel pulled in different directions, while feeling as though you are losing control over your life - at a loss to know where to start in order to break the negative cycles you find yourself trapped in. Amidst all this, relationships may suffer, not only with others, but also with yourself as you strive to find who you really are amongst all the chatter and chaos of your mind.

I believe in your inner resources to heal and step onto a new path, in your own way, and offer my services in confidence, as a compassionate witness on your journey of healing. During our sessions, I will gently encourage you to be true to yourself and your own direction, especially as you explore unsettling or difficult issues. My training and experience includes both psychological and spiritual dimensions of human growth and potential. Psychology and spirit are deeply connected: I have witnessed my own and others' healing coming through the heart, the body and the spirit.

I work with adults and youth aged 16 and up on issues around trauma, sexuality, identity, and relationships. I also provide queer and trans affirming individual and relationship counselling services for folks in various relationship structures. I specialize in sexualized violence and also work more expansively looking at reclamation of self and identity after trauma of displacement and/or collective and intergenerational trauma, as well as institutional trauma (such as religious trauma). I believe that healing is expansive and I strive to honour and integrate into our work whatever ways of healing you have already been using.

As you consider if therapy might be a supportive choice for you, it is possible that you are feeling alone and yearn for a more authentic connection with yourself and others. You might find that your emotions feel unpredictable, overwhelming or perhaps you feel disconnected from them altogether. I believe that we all have the capacity for healing and growth. Through connection to ourselves, our bodies, and our communities we can begin to undo experiences of aloneness and rebuild a sense of safety and ease. My role is to hold a space where you can show up just as you are, assured that you will be met with care and compassion.

Having an addicted person in your life can feel like a nightmare and tear your family apart. In order for addiction to have a chance of healing, we must first address the dynamics of the addict's relationships with their loved ones. Many loved ones unwittingly enable the addiction to continue, sometimes because they want to avoid confrontation and conflict. As the enabling continues, the addiction continues as well-and becomes progressively worse. It is important to understand that enabling an addict is never a loving act-and only leads to more severe consequences as time goes on.

I specialize in helping individuals and partners navigate the extra something that makes their relationship(s) a unique challenge. Folks I work with are often loving outside of the cisheteronormative & mononormative structure such as ethical non-monogamy, kink/BDSM, or other LGBTQ2S+ relationships. I also work with people whose experience of the world may be impacting their relationships, such as folks who are neurodivergent, individuals living with chronic illness or pain, or folks for whom trauma is showing up. I strive to help folks design the intentional relationships they are struggling to create on their own.

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 Kitsilano, 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 Kitsilano, 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.
