About

My work is primarily with those who have experienced trauma - the experience of being emotionally and psychologically overwhelmed by adverse childhood experiences and adult traumatic events. My focus is always on the present - how can those debilitated by anxiety, shame, and poor self-worth become healthy enough to meet their own needs for income, housing, positive and affirming relationships, and physical and mental wellness.
I am both a trained therapeutic counsellor and trauma survivor from PTSD experienced as a result of a workplace assault. I was forced to navigate my own healing journey because there was little help available at the time for those dealing with trauma. Sadly, the situation has improved very little. My professional life is committed to filling that gap.
I manage Island Integrated Counselling, a non-profit agency with 17 therapeutic counsellors including 10 certified / registered therapeutic counsellors. Each of us has different skills, approaches, and emphases. Those experiencing anxiety and trauma will usually be helped by my approach, but if not, one of our other therapists will be able to help.
