Counselling & Psychotherapy

Currently my counselling practice and waitlist are full and I am not accepting new clients at this time

We all need to feel seen, understood and appreciated by another person, particularly during difficult times in our lives. Sometimes current or past stressors or trauma can get in the way of living the life you want, and counselling can be a way to move through this.

I work with you to build a safe relationship together, connect to the resources in your life, and process fear, anger, shame and grief to reconnect with all parts of yourself. I am inspired by human resilience and believe our inner healing wisdom always allows us the possibility to (re)create a fulfilling life

I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (#17891) with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors and a Registered Social Worker (#09523) with the BC College of Social Workers

I practice from a relational and process-oriented approach, integrating mindful somatic therapies, parts work, EMDR, and eco-feminist values.

Over the past 15 years I have worked in a variety of trauma, mental health, and addictions programs and have completed thousands of hours of postgraduate training and clinical supervision.  I have trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Hakomi Mindful Somatic Therapy, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Internal Family Systems and Psychedelic-Assisted Psychotherapy. ​

Currently, my areas of specialization include:

  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Developmental/Complex Trauma 
  • Insecure Attachment/ Developmental Attachment Injuries
  • Chronic Shame
  • Moderate to Severe Difficulties with Anxiety
  • Psychedelic-Assisted Psychotherapy (Preparation & Integration)

My practice is based in downtown Nanaimo & Gabriola Island with virtual therapy also available throughout British Columbia

I also offer a limited number of therapy hours through Numinus Health: The Drive, a clinic specializing in psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy programs and research. For more information, click here.

I look forward to connecting with you.
