Negative thoughts reel through your head throughout the day and have you tossing and turning at night. You get through your day as if everything is ok, but it isn’t… it’s exhausting! Life’s challenges leave you feeling overwhelmed and hopeless. Your relationships are suffering and you find yourself wanting to avoid the people and places you used to enjoy. No one seems to understand what you’re going through which leaves you feeling misunderstood, invalidated, and unsupported. You want to feel “normal” again. You just want your life back. You’ve had enough, and it’s time to make some serious changes. This is where I can help.

In my varied practice, I see youth and adults, addressing issues ranging from mental health concerns to life transitions. I use a client-centred approach, respecting that you are the expert in your own life. The therapeutic relationship we create allows you to explore your reality to the extent that you want to, in a trusting, calm and gentle environment. I draw from a number of different therapeutic styles, suited to you as a person, your worldview and your interests (talk, art, sandtray, play). I practice from an anti-oppressive, inclusive perspective, and also provide clinical supervision for counsellors.

The deepest desire of a human is to belong…to be heard…and to be accepted… Sometimes life presents us with difficulties that are tough to manage or resolve on our own. There are times when we need to ask for help in order to find ourselves and to move forward. As a person and a counsellor, I know that life’s challenges can happen at all stages of our lives at multiple levels and that every situation is unique to us alone. Circumstances that can challenge how we think, how we perceive, how we believe and how we respond.

"We are all wired for connection. It’s in our biology. As infants, our need for connection is about survival. As we grow older, connection means thriving – emotionally, physically, spiritually, and intellectually. Connection is critical because we all have the basic need to feel accepted and to believe that we belong and are valued for who we are” - Brene Brown At the core of my practice, I believe that a meaningful therapeutic connection can spark change. Talk therapy is a powerful tool to build and enhance acceptance, connection, and healing.

Finding the right fit as you deal with your issues is key to getting the help you need to feel better and move on in your life. I work with clients who struggle with: depression (including suicidal thoughts), self-harm, grief and loss, relationship issues, adjustment to life transitions (such as university life, divorce, midlife), and recovery from trauma (including sexual assault and rape). It can be challenging to share about your personal difficulties and there can be worry about being judged. It's important to feel you can share your struggles with your counsellor.

*Please note I'm currently taking a waitlist for new clients.* I'm glad you're here! Seeking counselling is a brave and self-compassionate thing to do. Here's how I can support you: I work with adults (ages 19+) who are dealing with trauma or PTSD, anxiety, grief, and low self-esteem. I also work with clients facing everyday challenges such as stress, life transitions, or social struggles. I help clients to gain coping skills and tools starting from our very first session. My clients find increased stability and balance in their lives, and move forward from past experiences that have been getting in the way of who they truly are.

By addressing troubling thoughts and feelings, self-sabotaging behaviors, and traumas, life can be made more manageable, productive, and fulfilling. Feelings such as grief, shame, anxiety, sadness, and anger often signal that something needs to change. Listening to and working with these feelings—some that consume us and others that gently nudge us—can move us forward. Through this, we sometimes discover that our everyday dilemmas are part of larger patterns waiting to be resolved as a whole.

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?

Stuck. Alone. Overwhelmed. Those are the words clients often connect with. Perhaps you have tried everything you can think of to change things. Maybe you've tried everything your friends and family can think of too. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, meaninglessness, or something unique to you, I look forward to being with you in the healing process.

I work with individuals who are seeking long-term depth psychotherapy. I support deep inquiry and on-going discovery of who you are, whether the draw is to access more of your creative potential, or to shift long-standing patterns that no longer serve you. It is not about perfection, but rather wholeness, which includes all parts of the Self; it is about living a full life, not a perfect life. I work with severe childhood trauma, personality disorders, dissociation, self-harm, eating disorders, suicidal ideation, and spiritual awakening. I also work with clients who are on a dedicated spiritual path.

I understand clients have challenges that they would like support with navigating through. They need a counsellor who is non-judgmental, compassionate, and safe. Typically, client's goals revolve around achieving more self-awareness, skills, and abilities to help themselves live a meaningful life. I want to facilitate their passion about growth and creating lifestyles that support their values and goals.
