I believe that at the root of struggle there is a core need-a heart need-that is not being met. Our basic desires are belonging and meaning, but societal pressures, expectations, or negative thoughts and anxieties can hinder us from being our authentic selves. I can support you to grow your awareness of self, take steps toward goals, and manage difficult moments that challenge a meaningful life and healthy relationships. In session with me you can expect a conversational, warm atmosphere for you to uncover your needs and move forward with greater self-compassion.
I am finishing my master’s degree in counselling psychology and I hold a BFA in Theatre and a B.Ed from UBC. Originally from the east coast, I have been a teacher in B.C. for the past 17 years. I have personal experience with ADHD, and enjoy helping children, adults, and families who are neurodiverse, including those with learning differences, or who are autistic. I am available for parent coaching and can help you to navigate systems, such as developing IEPs. I look forward to working with anyone through life transitions and challenges, such as career changes, relationships, intimacy, marriage and separation/divorce, parenting and co-parenting, post-partum, loss of a loved one, and aging.
In my spare time I like to run trails in the mountains with my partner and my dog-a half husky who has a lot of energy! I look forward to meeting you.
