I believe that everyone is capable of having healthy relationships and has their own unique optimal state. My holistic approach to mental wellness combines relationship, attachment, mindfulness, and elements of cognitive behavioural therapy. My approach is focused on increasing self-awareness and creating new relationship and behaviour patterns. We can also explore dreams and early memories in a no-nonsense way that's down-to-earth.
While I draw from many styles, we'll work together to find modalities that will suit you and a create a treatment plan tailored to your unique needs.
I see therapy as the crossroads between feeling stuck and finding new solutions to move forward in life.
Individuals in counselling can explore personal challenges with anxiety, mood, relationships, stress, and confidence. You'll learn how to process emotions in a safe therapeutic space. Couples in therapy can safely explore their relationship in a safe and supportive environment based on mutual respect, trust, and collaboration.
My approach to counselling relies on holding space for the natural process that change may take. I see you as the expert of your life and can help to highlight and build on your strengths, guiding you on your path to change.
As a therapist, I rely on my personal authenticity to create an empathic, warm, and nonjudgmental connection.
I respect and acknowledge that the services I provide take place on the unceded ancestral territories of the hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ and Sḵwx̱wú7mesh first nations peoples that was not surrendered. I proudly support humane societies, women’s equality and the LGBT2Q+ community.
