We formulate beliefs about ourselves early in life. If we grow up in a nurturing and loving environment, individual beliefs might be that I am lovable, I am worthy and I deserve good things in life. Unfortunately, many of us grew up in families where our caregivers struggled with their own negative beliefs and were therefore not able to be there for us in a way that we needed them to be. Many people grow up thinking I am not worthy of love, connection or the good things in life.

Ever feel like saying F#CK My Life? Whether you are stressed out, burnt out or someone feeling increasingly overwhelmed, I am here to support you. I specialize in anger, jealousy, burnout, stress and addiction. I also work with people who have a spiritual practice that has stalled or needs support. My counselling style is pragmatic and heartfelt. I have weathered my fair share of storms. “Why” is this happening to me is an important question to ask. The answer often lies in our own behaviour, habit energy and shadow. Working at this level leads to lasting change, beyond talk therapy.

I work in an integrative way. What we do and how we approach it will depend on what works best for you and what you need at this time. Some people know exactly what they want to work on. Other people come because something doesn't feel right or they're not functioning as well as they could but they're not sure at first why that is. Others come even though things are going well but they'd like to develop greater awareness or fulfilment in life. We will work together to develop an approach that suits you.

I blend clinical counselling and music therapy to help you thrive. Music and creativity can be the path to healing, but sometimes can also be the cause of suffering. My personal journey through music and healing showed me that it is possible to reconnect to the feelings of enjoyment, satisfaction and freedom that we had when we were first exploring music and bring them into our lives and creative practices today. I have the honour to share this journey with others looking to reclaim the positive power of music in their lives. No previous musical training is necessary to benefit, just a desire to connect with your creative self.

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.

Like many people, I grew up in an environment where we didn't talk about our struggles and emotions. From an early age, I learned to keep the difficult things inside and deal with my emotions on my own. In 1999, I became a crisis phone counsellor and realized that I wasn't the only one who had had this kind of experience. I realized that a lot of people felt the way I did and kept their emotions inside. For the first time, I learned how healing it could be to share struggles with supportive people.

I specialize in the area of stress, anxiety and interpersonal relationships. Anxiety and stress can take many forms, therefore the treatment approach may vary however evidence based CBT is the most effective treatment in these areas, especially when it is paired in combination with psychodynamic, relational and hypnosis approaches also as needed. Healing is probable, and happens as a result of conscious daily actions and unconscious dynamics that shift as a result of this process. After 3-6 sessions you will have a great amount of clarity and substantial tools to begin the journey of healing and happiness- in all areas of life.

Empowering Women to Honour the Sacred Within. My approach to counselling is deeply rooted in compassion and integrity blending each client’s individual spiritual belief system with their unique history and life experience. Counselling can be both gentle and practical at the same time, with a mixture of modalities, resources and other tools that provide the opportunity for optimal learning and growth. I consider counselling sessions to be sacred space, where you always have a choice about what you want to explore and where you want to go.

When life is difficult the resulting symptoms usually include depression, anxiety, fear, anger and/or withdrawal. Rather than avoiding these states I have helped hundreds of clients turn them into resources, significantly improving their lives --usually after only a few sessions. I have 25+ years experience working with couples, individuals, families and groups, and have supervised 20+ new therapists. I specialize with couples, helping them to move beyond arguing, tension, anger, resentment and distancing into happy couples. My clients turn their problems into workable solutions.

To conceptualize therapy, the following might be a helpful picture. Recently, we decided to hatch our own chickens. After a couple of weeks, we candled the eggs to get a glimpse inside. The glimpse was amazing and mysterious—we could see life happening beneath the shell. This is what often happens in a counselling session; we look beneath the “shell” and get a glimpse of the mystery and complexity of the human experience. From this deeper looker inside, we have many choices and changes that are possible.

Online Counsellors
Online counselling is a good solution for people who do not have access to well-qualified clinical professionals in their area or who live remotely or abroad. We also refer to it as Teletherapy, online therapy or skype therapy: in short, it's simply conducting a clinical therapy session using a video or phone as the means of communicating.

It's an excellent solution for those who are immobile or find it more convenient to conduct therapy in the privacy of their own home. Or are agoraphobic (fearful of leaving their home), but still want counselling.

If you're looking for online counselling in Nanaimo or for a Nanaimo online therapist these professionals provide online therapy, skype therapy and video treatment.
