somatic and internal family systems therapy

Welome! I offer counselling sessions virtually and in-person in the Comox Valley with an inclusive and trauma-informed approach. The teachings/trainings that inform my practice the most are relational somatic therapy & Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy, although most of all I am person-centered and collobarative with the people I work with. I also hold registration as a clinical counsellor with the BCACC.

I am grateful to be a visitor on the traditional territory of the K’ómoks First Nation, who today refer
to themselves as Sahtloot, Sasitla, Ieeksun and Puntledge people. I am also grateful to travel to the traditional territories of the Nuu Chah Nulth peoples to offer my services

You enter life a ship laden with meaning, purpose and gifts
sent to be delivered to a hungry world.
And as much as the world needs your cargo,
you need to give it away.
Everything depends on this.

But the world forgets its needs,
and you forget your mission,
and the ancestral maps used to guide you
have become faded scrawls on the parchment of dead Pharaohs.

The cargo weighs you heavy the longer it is held
and spoilage becomes a risk.
The ship sputters from port to port and at each you ask:

"Is this the way?"

But the way cannot be found without knowing the cargo,
and the cargo cannot be known without recognizing there is a way,
and it is simply this:
You have gifts.
The world needs your gifts.
You must deliver them.

The world may not know it is starving,
but the hungry know,
and they will find you
when you discover your cargo
and start to give it away.
