My counselling style is centred around the therapeutic relationship and collaborative goal setting. Creating safety requires honesty and openness on the part of both client and counsellor. Together we wade into vulnerable waters to better understand the thoughts, feelings, behaviours and experiences keeping you from feeling regulated, centered and living life to the fullest. My approach combines Somatic Attachment Theory and Eye-movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). to support individuals in reconnecting to their bodies and inner wisdom. From this grounded space we can work on building new skills, and identifying forgotten strengths and values to support individuals dealing with challenging relationships, anxiety, overwhelm, goal setting, grief, and trauma.
I currently offer virtual sessions for anyone in British Columbia and work with individuals from youth (16+), young adults, and elders, supporting them to better understand their experiences and themselves. Using evidence-based psychological theory and personal connection, we co-create a safe space to explore feelings, build self-compassion, and develop personal resources and practical tools to support living well.
Using evidence-based theories such as:
- Somatic Therapy
- Family Systems,
- Solution Focused
to inform our sessions, we can work through and support your healing journey. Leveraging these therapeutic modalities, with multicultural sensitivity and a trauma-informed approach, help us move towards knowingness, integration, and positive change. Connecting to your inner wisdom, building new skills, and identifying forgotten strengths and values can support individuals dealing with challenging relationships, anxiety, overwhelm, goal setting, grief, and trauma.
Over the past 20 years, my work experiences from entrepreneur consultant, non-profit Director in hospice, palliative care to therapist have offered me the opportunity to journey with people through the highs and lows of life and to develop a strong ability for “being with.” I believe that through therapy, people have the chance to feel seen, and heard; and to begin to understand themselves on a deeper level. With this inner exploration, there are opportunities to experience more self-compassion and open space for more joy in your life – starting today.
