All grief is not the same. You might think that you cannot survive your traumatic loss and life will never seem right again. You might think that the pain you are in now will never end. You wonder how other people get through the day. My clients seek to make sense of what has happened in their lives, to be understood and have a place of safety to explore new ways of living. Having helped clients in many areas of counselling and psychotherapy and with most age groups over the past 20 years, my experience is broad and deep. This informs my current work with clients, who like you, are looking for hope that life can get better.

I work primarily with children (ages 5 +), youth, and their families. A strong focus of mine is working with transgenerational trauma, abuse, issues surrounding belonging, abandonment, divorce and separation, addiction, eating disorders, impacts of cultural genocide/colonization, anxiety, gender transitioning/identity, and depression. I strive to walk with clients to further support them in building the necessary tools to navigate challenging life events, and to experience more beauty and growth. I understand that reaching out is never easy and I aim to provide a safe, trusting, compassionate space to explore or process issues.

This world is a lot of power imbalances, mixed messages, conditional "love," and trauma triggers, and now and again it could get exhausting to try to find a way to live fully. But we can figure this out together. We can free our joy into a belly laugh, embody deep knowing and confidence, ground in self-worth and safety, and explore genuine connections. It would be an honour to do this journey with you.

Wellnest is a progressive, BIPOC mental health space which provides counselling services in a safe, accessible and culturally responsive environment to optimize the individuals, couples and families in their personal, academic and overall well-being. We learned that the spaces in which we sought support did not always reflect our own identities, and from that experience stemmed our need to create change in our field of work. Our purpose is to provide you with a safe and compassionate environment as we work to help you explore your challenges, understand yourself and your mental health, and to help manage your life more effectively.

I am an integrative psychotherapist and bring curiosity, warmth, compassion, and a sense of humor to the therapeutic relationship. I use a collaborative, strength-based, and relational approach focused on promoting long-lasting change. Fundamentally, we are social beings, embedded in complicated social relationships. It is my belief that many struggles people face are linked to how they experience these relationships and how larger structural and societal issues impact these relationships. I strive to work side-by-side with my clients in the healing process, helping them to pave the way toward a more authentic and satisfying life.

I like working with clients who are ready to change, even if they are not sure exactly what they want to change yet. I enjoy helping people define what a "good," or "better" life would look like for them, and exploring - and, conquering - blocks to achieving this. Sometimes, this involves going backwards, and exploring past patterns. Other times, it is about moving forward. We define this, together. I welcome all to work with me. As a mixed race (Jamaican/German), bipoc, queer, and non-binary therapist, I love serving members of my community. I also enjoy helping people overcome blocks to creativity and business.

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.

*Services by student counsellors and Associates available* People we work with describe feeling disconnected, invalidated, and powerless after experiencing trauma and injustice. Some have felt stuck and overwhelmed in the process of reconnecting with themselves, their communities, and in navigating the dominant culture. We support clients in processing their experiences and deepening their understanding of themselves and their relationships. We affirm clients' needs and desires and value reciprocity and collaboration. Honoring clients' knowledge, we invite clients to co-create safety and exercise their self-determination.

Overwhelm, uncertainty, confusion, conflict, anxiety and despair - if this is your reality right now, you're not alone. We're all longing for a sense of connection, possibility, and hope in the face of the tsunami of injustice, trauma and loss we're living through in these 'unprecedented times' (ugh). Stress levels higher than the price of a Vancouver condo, relationships sinking under the weight of isolation, & identities under attack from all sides - how do we cope with the chaos and still show up as the caregivers, creatives, healers and changemakers the world so desperately needs?

Hi there! I'm so glad you're here. It can be challenging to reach out for support, whether you've been to counselling before or it's your first time. If you're questioning your identity, struggling in your relationships, going through a difficult life transition, feeling overwhelmed by trauma symptoms, or simply trying to learn more about your authentic self - know that you aren't alone and that counselling can help you find wellbeing and acceptance.

I work with clients ages 14 and up, online and in-person. I welcome your whole self in our sessions, including intersectional identities, contradictions, uncertainty, and tender feelings. I also welcome people who are hesitant about seeing a counsellor, or who’ve had difficult experiences accessing mental health support in the past. My aim is for our sessions to be an empowering experience for you. My practice is influenced by creativity and the arts, and I seek to accompany people in healing according to their own values, and through experiences of dignity and possibility.

Have you ever felt like no one gets you? How about feeling like you do not have anyone you can fall back on? How about the feeling of panic and being on edge? These feelings are scary and they are part of the sadness/anxiety that we all experience from time to time. Often, it is human connection that makes these feelings go away.

If you are looking to live a more meaningful life and have a deeper understanding of yourself, I invite you to psychotherapy. I have worked with adults with depression, anxiety, childhood trauma and other mental health challenges for years. I know it might be hard to find the motivation to get out of bed in the mornings. Where you used to enjoy activities with friends or loved ones, you might feel numb , disconnected or overwhelmed with anxiety. You may even find yourself stuck in unhealthy relationships that just don’t feel right. Sometimes, emotions such as anger or anxiety can go from 0 to 100 in a matter of seconds.
