You are a bicultural millennial woman looking to develop a healthier relationship with yourself. You had to grow up quickly due to difficult experiences in your childhood or family, so you took on the role of being Strong. For a long time, you held everything in, minimized your needs, and bottled up your emotions because that was what you had to do to get by. Lately, you’ve started to feel the toll of living this way. Suppressing your emotions has caused undue stress on your body; constantly keeping up an “image” or chameleon-ing around others has become exhausting; most of all, you’re tired of not having space for you.

I support children, youth and adults who feel stuck, anxious, and unable to enjoy their present lives. Our past struggles and experiences can sometimes leave a negative residue on us and prevent us from living freely. For us to heal from the experiences and struggles we face we must allow ourselves to process our thoughts and emotions so we can truly move past them.

Being in therapy can be one of the most rewarding experiences in the world. It allows you to cross the hurdles you are experiencing and to become yourself. It allows you to be content, to be grounded, and to be happy. Ultimately, the goal of any therapy process is to get you closer to be able to love, work, and play freely. Therapy can be a difficult and emotionally loaded experience. It's important to be willing to participate and to be open to possibilities. My goal in the process will be to help guide you along the way.

I provide online and telephone counselling services to individuals. I offer a trauma informed, culturally sensitive approach with a focus on relationship and connection tailored to meet each person's needs. My greatest asset as a counsellor is my years of life experience in various roles that allow me to relate to individuals in an authentic, non-judgemental way. My rural upbringing gave me a deep connection with nature and an understanding of its importance in healing. While my years as a teacher and a parent provided me with insight into the challenges faced by people working in the school system and the challenges of parenting.

The Power of Perception... The greatest area of growth my clients experience from our work together is the discovery that their problems are not what they thought they were. I'll help you move from a place of hopelessness, frustration and fear to understanding and peace. Struggle is a "threshold" of transition and can be your power spot. Although this can be difficult, discomfort acts as a motivator to create change. That is its job. You are at a place where all the possibilities and richness of life are yours to be found. I can help you take your next steps.

The majority of my clients want more clarity, compassion, connection, and grace in their lives, and they struggle to access these experiences on their own because they haven't been taught how or they grew up in conditions that didn't allow them to have feelings. Unfortunately, we are born into a world that is beautiful in some ways and inherently flawed in other ways. It also communicates to us that if we struggle, we should take care of ourselves: but how? How do we know what our needs are?

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in British Columbia?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in British Columbia specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
