I approach counselling from a lens that is grounded in the continued practice of anti-racism, disability justice, queer theory, sex positivity, and that recognizes the systemic violence that has, and continues to, harm us and impact our experiences in the world, and inside ourselves. The main niche of folks that I have had the honour of working with over the years have been queer and trans folks, sex workers, disabled folks, non-traditional relationship networks, kink and bdsm communities, BIPOC folks, folks navigating complex trauma, and those living at the intersections of many of these identities.

I tend to work best with folks who have explored some self-development work (talk-therapy, yoga, meditation, plant medicines etc..) and feel ready to be with what is going on somatically. People who come to me often feel a sense of unworthiness, shame or confusion around their body, sexuality, or self-expression and desire a sense of closeness, intimacy and belonging with others. I often work with survivors of sexual violence and childhood sexual abuse . Sex-work, polyamory and kink affirming. I welcome people of all genders and sexual orientations. Currently offering sessions online and outdoors.

We enjoy working with everyone: polyamorous, kink -identified, or LGBTQ+, always offering authenticity and safety.
At Allura, we know and understand that sexuality is one of the most fun but complicated parts of humanity, while also one of the hardest to find a safe and non-judgmental space to speak openly about. Do you feel overwhelmed when you think about your sexuality, sex life, or relationship? Do you wish for more connection and excitement with your partner? Do you sometimes feel stress or anxiety fill your life? We can help with that. Our clients are professionals, parents, sometimes monogamous and sometimes polyamorous, LGBTQ+ - but they all share one thing in common: they are struggling with their sexuality in some way.

I specialize in counselling for queer, trans, genderdiverse, and neurodivergent people. I work with individuals, couples, poly folks, and families from the perspectives of social justice and attachment - I believes that the social environment we grew up in, and our relationship histories within those environments, shape how we show up in our present. I pay special attention to how power functions in our relationships and communities, and how it impacts our internal experiences. I am kink and poly affirming, and excited to work with people with all kinds of relationship structures.

I work compassionately and non-judgmentally, with a focus on resourcing the body to help process emotions. I am highly relational, and my goal is to build an intimate relationship with you where you have the space to process and release what you've been carrying. I value working with intense emotions, insecure attachment, trauma, and unpacking life experiences to relieve symptoms of anxiety, stuckness, and feelings of unworthiness.

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.

I’ve helped many clients explore opening up their relationships in different ways and those finding a mismatch in sexual/ kink desire.
I launched Nested Heart Counselling in 2013 in response to a call from the local polyamorous community saying how challenging it was to find mental health support that didn’t require further education about unconventional identities. I'm not currently accepting new clients personally, however I have collected a group of counsellors with similar values, experience and training as myself across BC. Roxanna, Morgan, Erica all have availability right now for new individual clients. Katree is our practicum student who has reduced cost counselling sessions available in Victoria. You can explore their extensive bios on our website.

I offer remote individual counselling to adults and youth (2SLGBTQ+, kink , poly positive).
Are you different? So am I. I specialize in working with people who break the mold. This includes neuro-diverse adults (ADHD, Autistic, C-PTSD), chronically ill, 2SLGBTQ, and racialized people. Focusing on resiliency and emotional intelligence, I use evidence-based practices and creative interventions to use the wounds of the past as seeds for growth. Adverse childhood experiences, trauma, and relationship fractures disrupt our feelings of safety and trust. In order to thrive, we need to heal.

In the past, I have worked directly with individuals experiencing a range of diverse issues, including anxiety, depression, trauma and sexuality-based issues.

Psychotherapy can sometimes be a daunting task to undertake. After all, it's always hard to talk about thoughts and memories that hurt, feelings that are difficult to express or strive to change behaviours that feel unproductive. My years of experience as a counsellor however have taught me that in reality the hardest and most important step on this journey is the desire to change and the opennes to take a look at the world from a different lense. I welcome clinets from all backgrounds and have extensively worked with immigrants and young adults as I have much experience with a variety of contemporary problems that they may face.
