I feel passionately about healing and counselling work and provide a warm and welcoming space for my clients. I believe wholeheartedly each of us possesses unique strengths that can be uncovered in order to create impactful change from within. As you begin to discover parts of yourself through the counselling experience there is the opportunity release habits and patterns that no longer serve you. I offer you a safe space to unburden, heal and move forwards to a more connected way of living.
I am a registered clinical counsellor (RCC), hold a BA in Psychology and an MA in Counselling Psychology and have worked in the non-profit sector for years. I've acted as an advocate for human rights, taught mindfulness, trauma-sensitive yoga and counselled women and children who experienced the effects of domestic violence and abuse. Recently, my counselling practice has expanded to include individual and spiritually focused sessions and I welcome clients of all ages, genders, sexual orientations, cultural backgrounds and faiths.
My work is holistic and client-centred, however I most enjoy practicing mindfulness and body-focused approaches and most specifically Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy (please feel free to ask more about IFS). Whenever possible, I believe in strengthening the connection between humans and nature and am always learning new holistic methods of healing.
In my leisure time I enjoy being with my friends, my family, my dog, biking, practicing yoga, dancing, laughing and generally trying to enjoy each moment life has to offer. I grew up within the Comox Valley and acknowledge I am working on the unceded traditional territory of the K’ómoks First Nation.
