I can help you if you are struggling with anxiety, self-esteem or stress, especially if you are a highly sensitive person or empath or someone struggling with identity. If you are experiencing unexplained sadness, feeling grief or loss or struggling with overwhelm, know that you are not alone and we all have times when we need the support of others.
This is brave work. As humans, we thrive in connection. In counselling, you and I co-create a space where you can listen to and understand ALL of “you”. When the parts of you that have suffered are heard and loved, they will transform.
I have been counselling for over 12 years and know it takes courage to reach out for help. It can be hard to do something new. As C.S. Lewis says "You can't go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending." Feel free to reach out to talk about how I can help with your change process.
Having a good fit with your counsellor is important. Reasons you might seek counselling with me:
You are a highly sensitive person or empath.
You feel overwhelmed by anxiety and self-doubt too often.
You find yourself irritable with the important people in your life.
You are wanting to have stronger relationships (including your relationship with yourself).
You have lots of good ideas of what might help you feel better and feel frustrated with limited change or by feeling stuck.
You are struggling to figure yourself out.
You have lost a significant person/being in your life and feel stuck in the pain and grief of this loss.
You have a deep longing to be heard and understood and to understand yourself.
I provide online counselling in BC and in person counselling in Nanaimo.
