About

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 have a love for all that is unconventional and I have been working with clients who are LGBT, queer, non-binary, kinky (BDSM), polyamorous, swingers, sex workers and psychedelic explorers for more than 10 years. I’ve helped many clients explore opening up their relationships in different ways and those finding a mismatch in sexual/kink desire.
All of our counsellors offer a free consultation so you can see if we're a good fit. The therapeutic alliance is so important to this work and I want to make sure you feel good about beginning this journey with us.
