I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) in BC with a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology. I offer collaborative therapy to people seeking to cultivate change in themselves, relationships with others, or within social systems. Above all, I am committed to meeting you where you’re at and upholding your dignity and autonomy. I seek to maximize your choice in our sessions and support you to define what you need.
At the same time, I recognize that we seek counselling when we want something to change—often we get stuck in patterns that no longer serve us and we crave new approaches to help us get unstuck. I commit to being an active presence in your change process. I offer reflective space and guidance to help you explore different parts of yourself and your actions, as a way to bring them more in line with who you are and how you want to live your life.
This could mean working to integrate unresolved experiences or trauma, experiment with communication, connect with your desires, deepen compassion and respect for yourself, explore ways to navigate and confront oppression, or whatever paths you choose to prioritize. Regardless of our focus, I will work to show up as authentically as I can with a generous heart and a toolkit of strategies to help you catalyze change.
I draw counselling techniques from models rooted primarily in experiential learning, mindful embodiment, and a social justice framework. In particular, I have training in Internal Family Systems, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Response-Based Therapy, and Somatic-Attachment Therapy.
I offer a free 20-minute video/phone consultation where you can ask questions to determine if my practice will meet your current needs and aims for therapy. I look forward to hearing from you.
