I have specialized training in working with people who have been affected by trauma, addictions, anxiety, sexual concerns, and relationship issues. Many of my clients come in with a combination of concerns or a vague sense that something is off. My goal is to help you discover and safely let go of what's holding you back from living the life you want and deserve. Every person has the qualities and strengths within them to live a fulfilling, connected and meaningful life. In counselling, we will illuminate your strengths and we will gently transform and/or let go of the pain that brought you here. Your wellness is my priority and I will always tailor my approach to fit your unique goals.
I use Emotion Focused Therapy, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, as well as CBT, DBT and mindfulness based techniques. Our sensations, emotions, thoughts, and behaviours are always trying to communicate something. By gently learning to tune in to these processes, I will help you learn strategies that work uniquely for you. I will also help you to build resources and get in touch with your natural healing capacities in order to balance and manage what is no longer working for you.
I first experienced counselling as a client, so I know that it can feel daunting to begin seeing a new counsellor. It takes courage to reach out, the fact that you're here shows that you are resilient and you have the capacity to make change with some help. If you have questions, I offer free consultations which we can arrange for over email.
[COVID-19 Update] I offer online counselling options using Jane.app secure software, as well as phone counselling. I am currently seeing clients in-person in my office in Ladner with additional precautions. If you would like to go with an online appointment, I will be happy to fill you in on the precautions we are taking at the office. If you are new to online counselling, I really recommend giving it a try, it is often just as effective as meeting in-person and some people find they like it even more than counselling in-person. As we navigate Covid-19, I am also offering more sliding scale options as finances are affected for many. Please contact me if you have any questions about sliding scale.
This is a difficult time for many. The Covid-19 crisis can affect our mental health in many ways. I'm here to help you to navigate these new and challenging times.
